“Martyrs, my friend, have to choose between being forgotten, mocked or used. As for being understood -- never.”
“We talk of choosing our friends, but friends are self-elected”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
“A scholars ink lasts longer than a martyrs blood”
“The ink of the scholar is more sacred than the blood of the martyr”
“The martyr sacrifices themselves entirely in vain. Or rather not in vain; for they make the selfish more selfish, the lazy more lazy, the narrow narrower.”
“It is the hour to be drunken! to escape being the martyred slaves of time, be ceaselessly drunk. On wine, on poetry, or on virtue, as you wish.”
“It is often pleasant to stone a martyr, no matter how much we admire him”
