The story is not in the words; it's in the struggle.

Paul Auster

Now, justification in this life is given to us according to these three things: first by the laver of regeneration by which all sins are forgiven; then, by a struggle with the faults from whose guilt we have been absolved; the third, when our prayer is heard, in which we say: Forgive us our debts, because however bravely we fight against our faults, we are men; but the grace of God so aids as we fight in this corruptible body that there is reason for His hearing us as we ask forgiveness.

St. Augustine of Hippo

I have drawn inspiration from the Marine Corps, the Jewish struggle in Palestine and Israel, and the Irish.

Leon Uris

In his own way each man must struggle, lest the moral law become a far-off abstraction utterly separated from his active life.

Jane Addams

Leon Uris

The evolution of the human rights movement clearly illustrates humanity's ongoing struggle toward creating a better world.

Robert Alan

Obstacles are necessary for success because in selling, as in all careers of importance, victory comes only after many struggles and countless defeats. Yet each struggle, each defeat, sharpens your skills and strengths, your courage and your endurance, your ability and your confidence and thus each obstacle is a comrade-in-arms forcing you to become better or quit. Each rebuff is an opportunity to move forward; turn away from them, avoid them, and you throw away your future.

Og Mandino

The mountains were his masters. They rimmed in life. They were the cup of reality, beyond growth, beyond struggle and death. They were his absolute unity in the midst of eternal change.


In that worthiest of all struggles, the struggle for self-mastery and goodness, we are far less patient with ourselves than God is with us.

Josiah Gilbert Holland

The poor on the borderline of starvation live purposeful lives. To be engaged in a desperate struggle for food and shelter is to be wholly free from a sense of futility.

Abby Smith

Legionary life is beautiful, not because of riches, partying or the acquisition of luxury, but because of the noble comradeship which binds all Legionaries in a sacred brotherhood of struggle.

Corneliu Zelea Codreanu

Life ought to be a struggle of desire toward adventures whose nobility will fertilize the soul.

Rebecca West

Anytime there is a struggle between doing what is actually right and doing what seems right, then your ego is interfering with your decision.

Darren L. Johnson

Human curiosity, the urge to know, is a powerful force and is perhaps the best secret weapon of all in the struggle to unravel the workings of the natural world.

Aaron Klug

Well it seems to me, that all real communities grow out of a shared confrontation with survival. Communities are not produced by sentiment or mere goodwill. They grow out of a shared struggle. Our situation in the desert is an incubator for community.
