"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 lightening.
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; or 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 Douglas 1853.
"Social change is humanity's only means of redeeming
itself. Not mindless change for the sake of novelty, but change for the sake
of improving the quality of life."
.....Benet Davetian 2003
