"Struggle is a fact of life, but not necessarily an unpleasant fact. We can get more fulfillment from struggling for a good cause beyond ourselves than living a life of strictly fun for ourselves. Struggle is not fun. But it is better than fun. Those who welcome and enjoy it will get something out of life far more rewarding than those who do not. In rethinking our educational priorities, we must not forget this simple truth. Without the fires of challenge and competition, children will grow up untempered by struggle and soft in character, and later in life they will be ill-equipped to deal with its inevitable and often frightening trials."

- Richard Nixon, "In The Arena: A Memoir of Victory, Defeat, and Renewal"
