Introducing a new feature….

The Quote of the Week. In this era of MySpace and YouTube the spoken word remains the most powerful instrument of persuasion and the weapon capable of wreaking the most havoc upon one’s enemies. I’ve acquired a few lately about which the less said the better.

Every week I’ll be posting a quote I feel applies to our current situation in some way. A quote, as many do, which still rings with the truth in which it was forged. Still glows from the fire of conflict in which it was tempered. Life is conflict. Life is struggle to to admit defeat is to die.

Here’s this week’s:

Frederick Douglass:

Those who profess to favor freedom and yet depreciate agitation, are people who want crops without ploughing the ground; they want
rain without thunder and lightning; they want the ocean without the roar of its many waters. The struggle may be a moral one, or it may
be a physical one, or it may be both. But it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand; it never has and it never
will.
