Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet depreciate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing 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 it may be a physical one; or it may be both moral and physical; but it must be a struggle.”
– Frederick Douglass
Of course that's not to say it will be enjoyable. I get annoyed by the cheerful motivational speakers who tell us with a big grin that we must embrace failure as our best friend. I'm willing (grudgingly) to shake its hand as a necessary companion but I'll save best friend status for the occasional success.
(Speaking of motivational speakers, can they please stop asking rhetorical questions and then making the audience respond to the question, "Yes or yes?" If I go to another one of those presentations I may take along a pea-shooter and sit in the front row. "Yes or yes!?" PING!! right between the eyes).
