the road i must travel...

i recently heard a song that a friend of mine gave me which titled "the road i must travel" by the nightwatchman.. i later found out that the nightwatchman was tom morello..yes, tom morello.. for those who doesnt know him, he is a well known guitarist who played for rage against the machine and audioslave.. knowing this, i would assume that this was an activist song.. and i was right.. and the song really sounds good, as expected from tom morello.. when i watched the video for this song, i found some pretty interesting quotes by some famous people.. here are some of them:

"if there is no struggle, there is no progress."
-frederick douglas

"i am not a liberator. liberators do not exist. the people liberate themselves."
-che guevara

"i die with a clear conscience. i die fighting...not like a coward."
-joe hill

"resistance to tyranny is man's biggest ideal."
-emma goldman

"the revolution has always been in the hands of the young. the young always inherit the revolution."
-huey newton

"ideas are also weapons."
-subcomandante marcos

"i believe that there will ultimately be a clash between the oppressed and those who do the oppressing."
-malcom x

"first they ignore you. then they laugh at you. then they fight you. then you win."
-mohandas k. gandhi
