"The only kinds of fights worth having are those you’re going to lose,
because somebody has to fight them and lose and lose and lose until
someday, somebody who believes as you do wins. In order for somebody to
win an important, major fight 100 years hence, a lot of other people
have got to be willing — for the sheer fun and joy of it — to go
right ahead and fight, knowing you’re going to lose. You mustn’t feel
like a martyr. You’ve got to enjoy it."
