    The sail in the center of the ship reads, "If there is no struggle there is no progress.  Those who profess to favor freedom and yet deprecate agitation are people who want crops without plowing up the ground.  They want rain without thunder and lightning." (Frederick Douglass, 1857, Rochester, NY.)
