Power concedes nothing

Title

Power concedes nothing

Description

Wisdom from a great leader (and suffragist):

"If there is no struggle there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom and yet deprecate agitation are men who want crops without plowing up the ground; they want rain without thunder and lightning...

This struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, and 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." --Frederick Douglass, Canandaigua, NY 1857
