Rowing isn’t just one damn stroke after another — it’s the same damn stroke over and over again.


Take care of your health. … Imagine Hercules as oarsman in a rotten boat; what can he do there but by the very force of his stroke expedite the ruin of his craft. Take care of the timbers of your boat. … The formation of right habits is essential to your permanent security. They diminish your chance of falling when assaulted, and they augment your chance of recovery when overthrown.
— John Tyndall
