Slaves To Indoor Life

What a pitiable thing it is that our civilization can do no better for us than to make us slaves to indoor life, so that we have to go and take artificial exercise in order to preserve our health.

-- George Wharton James (1858-1923), journalist, author, and speaker, What the White Race May Learn from the Indian (1908), Chapter IV "The Indian and Out-Of-Door Life"
