Life Is A Struggle

Life is not given to us that we might live idly without work.
No, our life is a struggle and a journey.
  • Good should struggle with evil;
  • truth should struggle with falsehood;
  • freedom should struggle with slavery;
  • love should struggle with hatred.
Life is a movement, a walk along the way of life to the fulfillment of those ideas which illuminate us, both in our intellect and in our hearts, with divine light.
(After Giuseppe Mazzini, in A Calendar of Wisdom by Leo Tolstoy, 29 February)
