Quote by Alfred Lord Tennyson
What rights are those that dare not resist for them?
This quote suggests that rights hold little value if individuals do not assert them or stand up for them when they are threatened or violated. It questions the significance of having rights if people are not bold enough to resist anyone or any force that tries to suppress or infringe upon those rights. It highlights the importance of actively defending and fighting for one's rights in order to ensure their preservation and effectiveness.
My other piece of advice, Copperfield, said Mr. Micawber, you know. Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure nineteen nineteen and six, result happiness. Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure twenty pounds ought and six, result misery. The blossom is blighted, the leaf is withered, the god of day goes down upon the dreary scene, and - and in short you are for ever floored. As I am!
