The force of the blow depends on the resistance. It is sometimes better not to struggle against temptation. Either fly or yield at once.

F. H. Bradley

"...We are going to have to start working more realistically with a resistance consciousness, a resistance, something we can pass on as strength to the coming generations--a resistance where organizational ...[and] individual egos don't get in the way, a resistance where the infiltrators and the provacateurs and the liars and the not get in the way. We will not get our liberation if we do not seriously analyze the experiences of our own lifetimes.

John Trudell

Richard Weaver

Jibril Rajoub

Human character is never found "to enter into its glory," except through the ordeal of affliction. Its force cannot come forth without the offer of resistance, nor can the grandeur of its free will declare itself, except in the battle of fierce temptation.
