True Purpose of Recreation

"The true purpose of recreation should be not merely to amuse, not merely to afford pleasure, not merely to 'kill time,' but to increase our fitness, enhance our usefulness, spur achievement. Any form of recreation that impairs either our physical or mental efficiency does not recreate. Real recreation quickens aspiration." ~ Bertie Charles Forbes
