If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom and yet deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground, they want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters.

Frederick Douglass, 1857    

What reinforcement we may gain from hope; If not, what resolution from despair.

John Milton, Paradise Lost, bk 7
