Bravery

"And if I were to be condemned, and saw the fire lit, and the wood prepared, and the executioner, who would burn me ready to put me in the fire, even when in the fire I would not say other than that I have said. But I will maintain what I have said, until death."

Jeanne d'Arc, 23 May 1431, one week before her death at the stake.
