The only difference between a suicide and a martyrdom really is the amount of press coverage.

Chuck Palahniuk, novelist

The torments of martyrdom are probably most keenly felt by the bystanders.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, poet

The people who have really made history are the martyrs.

Aleister Crowley, critic

Great persecutors are recruited among martyrs whose heads haven't been cut off.

E. M. Cioran,

It is more difficult, and it calls for higher energies of soul, to live a martyr than to die one.

Horace Mann, educator

One, with God, is always a majority, but many a martyr has been burned at the stake while the votes were being counted.

Thomas Reed, politician

I'm fighting so I can die a martyr and go to heaven to meet God. Our fight now is against the Americans.

Osama bin Laden, criminal

I am as content to die for God's eternal truth on the scaffold as in any other way.

John Mason Brown, critic

Opposition may become sweet to a man when he has christened it persecution.

George Eliot, author

I wish to be a martyr, and I don't fear death.

Muqtada al Sadr, clergyman

No human beings more dangerous than those who have suffered for a belief: the great persecutors are recruited from the martyrs not quite beheaded. Far from diminishing the appetite for power, suffering exasperates it.

E. M. Cioran,

What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.

Thomas Jefferson, president

The difference between a man who faces death for the sake of an idea and an imitator who goes in search of martyrdom is that whilst the former expresses his idea most fully in death it is the strange feeling of bitterness which comes from failure that the latter really enjoys; the former rejoices in his victory, the latter in his suffering.

Soren Kierkegaard, philosopher

It is the cause, not the death that makes the martyr.

Napoleon Bonaparte, emperor

Martyrdom covers a multitude of sins.

Mark Twain, author

I want to be able to raise my kid. I was totally being a martyr about it at first, thinking I could totally do it on my own, which I did for a while. I've hired a babysitter before, but as for a full-time caregiver... for a control freak like me, it ain't gonna happen!

Keri Russell, actress

We are not here to triumph by fighting, by strata gem, or by resistance, not to fight with beasts as men. We have fought the beast and have conquered. We have only to conquer now, by suffering. This is the easier victory.

T. S. Eliot, poet

The martyr cannot be dishonored. Every lash inflicted is a tongue of fame; every prison a more illustrious abode.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, poet

Martyrdom does not end something, it only a beginning.

Indira Gandhi, politician

The way of the world is, to praise dead saints, and persecute living ones.

Nathaniel Howe,

Play the man, Master Ridley; we shall this day light such a candle, by God's grace, in England, as I trust shall never be put out.

Bishop Hugh Latimer,

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.

Florence Nightingale, activist

There are in every generation those who shrink from the ultimate sacrifice, but there are in every generation those who make it with joy and laughter and these are the salt of the generations.

Patrick Henry Pearse,

I will soon be going out to shape all the singing tomorrows.

Gabriel Peri,

Martyrdom has always been a proof of the intensity, never of the correctness of a belief.

Arthur Schnitzler,

No man dies for what he knows to be true. Men die for what they want to be true, for what some terror in their hearts tells them is not true.

Oscar Wilde, dramatist

Let us all be brave enough to die the death of a martyr, but let no one lust for martyrdom.

Mahatma Gandhi, activist

Although prepared for martyrdom, I preferred that it be postponed.

Winston Churchill, politician

While I do not suggest that humanity will ever be able to dispense with its martyrs, I cannot avoid the suspicion that with a little more thought and a little less belief their number may be substantially reduced.

J.B.S. Haldane,

Why should women not be a martyr for her cause?

Ernestine Rose, activist

What has violence ever accomplished? What has it ever created? No martyr's cause has ever been stilled by an assassin's bullet. No wrongs have ever been righted by riots and civil disorders. A sniper is only a coward, not a hero; and an uncontrolled or uncontrollable mob is only the voice of madness, not the voice of the people.

Robert Kennedy, politician

It is not the punishment but the cause that makes the martyr.

Saint Augustine, philosopher

Matrimony is the union of meanness and martyrdom.

Karl Kraus, writer

I have been astonished that men could die martyrs for religion - I have shuddered at it. I shudder no more - I could be martyred for my religion - Love is my religion - I could die for that.

John Keats, poet

Feast of Stephen, Deacon, First Martyr, the man who will not act until he knows all will never act at all.

Jim Elliot, clergyman
