Prelude to a struggle-part 1
It's not very often that I get a comment from a reader that seems to know what I'm going to say next. The following is a comment from Andrena @ Heavenly Ankh. Click on the title or find her on the blogroll to read more from this great writer:
My life is one big struggle...have had to struggle from childhood....I like what Frederick Douglas says:
"If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet depreciate 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. Find out just what a people will submit to, and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress."
Thanks for reading, and thanks again to Andrena for the great comment.
