On the strength of individuals.......

So seest though not, how, though external force
Drive men before, and often make them move,
Onward against desire, and headlong snatched,
Yet is there something in these breasts of ours
Strong to combat, strong to withstand the same? -

Lucretius,  Of the Nature of Things  Book II
