Yesterday I dared to struggle.
Today I dare to win.
Opportunity follows struggle. It follows effort.
It follows hard work. It doesn't come before.
The way I see things, the way I see life, I see
it as a struggle. And there's a great deal
of reward I have gained coming to that
understanding -- that existence is a struggle.
The last struggle for our rights, the battle for
our civilization is entirely with ourselves.
?William Wells Brown
Life is one long struggle in the dark.
The battles that count aren't the ones for gold medals.
The struggles within yourself -- the invisible, inevitable
battles inside all of us -- that's where it's at.
He who would live must fight, he who will not
fight in this world where eternal struggle is
the law of life, has not the right to exist.
The important thing in life is not
the triumph but the struggle.
?Pierre de Coubertin
Struggle is the father of all things. It is
not by the principles of humanity that
man lives or is able to preserve himself
above the animal world, but solely
by means of the most brutal struggle.
Struggle is strengthening. Battling with evil
gives us the power to battle evil even more.
In a serious struggle there is no worse cruelty than
to be magnanimous at an inopportune time.
Unfortunately this earth is not. . . a fairy-land,
but a struggle for life, perfectly
natural and therefore extremely harsh.
