Here are some other quotes about why the struggle in itself is important.
"To see what is in front of one's nose needs a constant struggle."
"Language exists only on the surface of our consciousness. The great human struggles are played out in silence and in the ability to express oneself."
-Franz Xavier Kroetz
"We grow because we struggle, we learn and overcome."
-R. C. Allen
"The struggle of man against power is the struggle of memory against forgetting."
"Passion is power,
And, kindly tempered, saves.
All things declare,
Struggle hath deeper peace than sleep can bring."
-William Vaughn Moody
"Work and struggle and never accept an evil that you can change."
"Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can't ride you unless your back is bent."
-Martin Luther King, Jr.
"Life has meaning only in the struggle. Triumph or defeat is in the hands of the Gods. So let us celebrate the struggle!"
"Acceptance of one's life has nothing to do with resignation; it does not mean running away from the struggle. On the contrary, it means accepting it as it comes, with all the handicaps of heredity, of suffering, of psychological complexes and injustices."
-Dr. Paul Tournier
"Where there is no struggle, there is no strength."
