Let my name stand among those who are willing to bear ridicule and reproach for the truth's sake, and so earn some right to rejoice when the victory is won.

Not all deserve the right to see the truth's victory… Sometimes one life is just too short.

A Little Bird I Am

'A little bird I am,
Shut from the fields of air,
And in my cage I sit and sing
To Him who placed me there:
Well pleased a prisoner to be,
Because, my God, it pleases Thee!

'Naught have I else to do;
I sing the whole day long;
And He whom most I love to please
Doth listen to my song,
He caught and bound my wandering wing,
But still He bends to hear me sing.'

Louisa May Alcott

Initially we may loose if we stand on truth but in the end we will be on victory side and can be rejoiced at our achievements

And the truth will make you free John 8:32. That's a promise (or a hint) from the Bible. In other words it is imperative to find the truth for those who want freedom. But the truth can only be found under certain conditions.

Can you say a bit more, please, about the 'certain conditions?'

I remember, therefore I am.

This quote is from "The Selected Letters of Louisa May Alcott"- letter to Lucy Stone

Aug. 31 1885

My dear Mrs Stone,

I Should Think It was hardly necessary for me to write or to say that it is impossible for me ever to "go back" on Woman's Suffrage. I earnestly desire to go forward on that line as far as the prejudices selfishness & blindness of the world will let us, & it is a great cross
to me that ill health & home duties prevent my devoting heart, pen & time to this most vital question of the age.
After a fifty year acquaintance whit the noble men and women of the Ant Slavery Cause and the sight of the glorious end to their faithful work, I should be a traitor to all I most love, honor and desire to imitate. If I did no cover a place among those who are giving their lives
to the emancipation of the whites slaves of America.
If I can do not more, Let my name stand among those who are willing to bear ridicule and reproach for the truth's sake, and so earn some right to rejoice when the victory is won.

Most heartily yours for Woman's Suffrage & all other reforms

Louisa May Alcott

Tis a great quote and apropos for todays article, "Python Patrols" to Wrangle Florida Snakes, as we in the environmental movement have been actively pushing for action against this invasive species in Florida, which will very soon spread to the other costal states...
