„"When a man lies, he murders some part of the world. These are the pale deaths which men miscall their lives.", (Paul Gerhardt, 1607-1676). "All this I cannot bear to witness any longer. Cannot the Kingdom of Salvation take me home?", (Burton).“

„I cannot sufficiently admire the eminence of those men's wits“

—  Galileo Galilei, buch Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems

Thomas Salusbury translation (1661) p. 301 as quoted by Edwin Arthur Burtt, The Metaphysical Foundations of Modern Physical Science (1925)
Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems (1632)
Kontext: I cannot sufficiently admire the eminence of those men's wits, that have received and held it to be true, and with the sprightliness of their judgments offered such violence to their own senses, as that they have been able to prefer that which their reason dictated to them, to that which sensible experiments represented most manifestly to the contrary.... I cannot find any bounds for my admiration, how that reason was able in Aristarchus and Copernicus, to commit such a rape on their senses, as in despite thereof to make herself mistress of their credulity.

„The world cannot utterly ignore men who lay down their lives for any cause.“

—  Robert Hunter (author) American sociologist, author, golf course architect 1874 - 1942

Quelle: Violence and the Labor Movement (1914), p. 90
Kontext: The world cannot utterly ignore men who lay down their lives for any cause. Men may write and agitate, they may scream never so shrilly about the wrongs of the world, but when they go forth to fight single-handed and to die for what they preach, they have at least earned the right to demand of society an inquiry.
