Frederick Douglass on Anorexia

No, not really, but am speaking at an international lunch today, and this quote that I am using made sense.

If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favour freedom and yet depreciate agitation are men who want crops without ploughing up the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters. This struggle may be a moral one or a physical one; or a moral and physical one, but there must be struggle.

Makes sense to me.
