I would rather live and love where death is king than have eternal life where love is not.
In the night of death, hope sees a star, and listening love can hear the rustle of a wing.
We need men with moral courage to speak and write their real thoughts, and to stand by their convictions, even to the very death.
When the will defies fear, when duty throws the gauntlet down to fate, when honor scorns to compromise with death - that is heroism.
How long, O how long will mankind worship a book? How long will they grovel in the dust before the ignorant legends of the barbaric past? How long, O how long will they pursue phantoms in a darkness deeper than death?
