Giuseppe Mazzini — Life is not given to us…

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 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.
Giuseppe Mazzini
