If There Is No Struggle, There Is No Progress

If there is no struggle there is no progress. Those who profess to favour 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.

This struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, and it may be both moral and physical, but it must be a struggle.

Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will.

Frederick Douglass

  1. I kind of do want the ocean without the roar….I want just a calm floating sea for awhile. 🙂
