"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."
[Frederick Baily] (1818-1895), escaped slave, Abolitionist, author, editor of the North Star and later the New National Era
