John Locke: "You see this little hole? This moth's just about to emerge. It's in there right now, sturggling. It's digging
it's way through the thick hide of the cocoon. Now, I could help it - take my knife, gently widen the opening, and the moth would be free - but it would be too weak to survive. Struggle is nature's way of strengthening it."
