"Stand up to an obstacle. Just stand up to it, that’s all, and don’t give way under it, and it will finally break. You will break it. Something has to break, and it won’t be you, it will be the obstacle."

— Norman Vincent Peale, The Power of Positive Thinking

"People will come to love their oppression, to adore the technologies that undo their capacities to think."

Aldous Huxley
