"What does labor want? We want more schoolhouses and less jails; more books and less arsenals; more learning and less vice; more leisure and less greed; more justice and less revenge; in fact, more of the opportunities to cultivate our better natures". What does labor want? In a word, MORE!
- Samuel Gompers, 1st General President of AFL
"If there is no struggle there is no progress. Those who 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". - Frederick Douglass, carpenter, abolitionist, 1849
