>> I need Fredrick Douglass' famous remark about the limits of
>> tryanny for my quote file.  Does anybody have it handy?
>"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.  They want the ocean without 
>the awful roar of its 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!  Power concedes nothing without a demand.  
>It never did, and it never will.  Find out just what people will
>submit to, and you have found out the exact amount of injustice 
>and wrong which will be imposed upon them;  and these will continue 
>until they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. 
>The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those 
>whom they oppress."
>		          -- Fredrick Douglass, August 4, 1857.
