„I was taught to fight, taught to win;
I never thought I could fail.“

—  Peter Gabriel, Context: In this proud land we grew up strong; We were wanted all along. I was taught to fight, taught to win; I never thought I could fail.No fight left or so it seems; I am a man whose dreams have all deserted. I've changed my face, I've changed my name, But no one wants you when you lose. Don't Give Up, Duet written by Gabriel, sung with Kate Bush

„I always expect to lose. I fight anyway, and sometimes I win.“

—  Richard Stallman American software freedom activist, short story writer and computer programmer, founder of the GNU project 1953
Context: I am a pessimist by nature. Many people can only keep on fighting when they expect to win. I'm not like that, I always expect to lose. I fight anyway, and sometimes I win. I'm not the main leader in this particular battle. The Electronic Frontier Foundation is fighting. Public Knowledge is fighting. People need to get involved politically. At this point people should go to the EFF website and the Public Knowledge website, and continue doing so over the coming weeks to see how they can get involved in this coming campaign. It's going to take a lot of people spending probably at least twenty minutes. If you care enough about your freedom to spend twenty minutes on it, if you can tear yourself away from whatever little job it is you're doing this week, and next week, and so on. Spend a little time fighting for your freedom, and we can win. "Interview: Richard Stallman" on Kernel (4 January 2005) http://archive.is/20120711223115/kerneltrap.org/node/4484
