Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what a 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 till 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. Men may not get all they pay for in this world; but they must pay for all they get.

- Frederick Douglass

The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend.

- Robertson Davies

If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, Infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro' narrow chinks of his cavern.

'The Marriage of Heaven and Hell'

- William Blake

A man who does not think for himself does not think at all.

- Oscar Wilde
