But men's hearts are so made that the sight of one voluntary victim for a noble idea stirs them more deeply than the sight of a crowd submitting to a dire fate they cannot escape.
- Letter to the editor of Free Russia, 1890

Martyrdom covers a multitude of sins.
- Mark Twain's Notebook, 1902-1903

Martyrdom is the luckiest fate that can befall some people.
