I know this now.
Every man gives his life for what he believes.
Every woman gives her life for what she believes.
Sometimes people believe in little or nothing,
and yet they give their lives to that little or nothing.
One life is all we have
and we live it as we believe in living it
and then it’s gone.
But to surrender what you are
and to live without belief
is more terrible than dying
—even more terrible than dying young.
—Joan of Arc (1412-1431)
