Pokerface: "'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 lightning.
They want the ocean without the awful roar of its 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 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 until 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.'
-----Frederick Douglass"
