“It is not the men who succeed that is always worthy of estimation. The men who fail in a worthy cause continue to exercise a potent influence on their race. The leader of the forlorn hope may fall in the beach, but his body furnishes the bridge over which the victors enter the citadel; the martyr may perish on the stake, but the truth for which he dies may gather new lustre from his sacrifice. The patriot may lay his head upon the block and hasten the triumph of the cause for which he suffers. The memory of a great life does not perish with the life itself but lives in others’ minds. The ardent and enthusiastic may seem to throw their lives away; but the enduring men continue the fight and enter in, and take possession of the ground on which their predecessors sleep. Thus the triumph of a just cause may come late, but when it does come, it id due to the men who have failed as well as to the men who have eventually succeeded”.
