Menticulture - San Francisco Argonaut
( Originally Published 1901 )
An eminent medical authority discredits the theory that men (or women either) break down from overwork. He says the brain does its work with the minimum of effect; that with due nutriment and rest in sleep it can work continuously during working hours, and that, instead of being injured by severe labor, it is improved by it if the labor is done under normal conditions. " When a man says he is suffering from the effects of mental overwork," adds this authority, " the wise physician wants to know what his vices are. Worry may he one. The worries of life do infinitely more harm than the work of life, however onerous it may be."
