Despite the fact that hundreds of thousands of people have died — and that is a tragedy — I still believe that it was the right thing to do.
I was broken in body, soul and spirit. My natural elasticity was crushed, my intellect languished, the disposition to read departed, the cheerful spark that lingered about my eye died; the dark night of slavery closed in upon me; and behold a man transformed into a brute!frederick douglass
This is one of the most highly secret matters there are, perhaps the most secret. Anybody who speaks about it is shot dead immediately. Two talkative people died yesterday.odilo globocnik

I sing the hymn of the conquered, who fell in the Battle of Life,—The hymn of the wounded, the beaten, who died overwhelmed in the strife….The hymn of the low and the humble, the weary, the broken in heart,Who strove and who failed, acting bravely a silent and desperate part.william wetmore story

Keynes was chief economic adviser to the British government and largely responsible for keeping the British economy afloat at a time when more than half of our gross national product, and all of out foreign exchange, was being spent on the war. ...I was lucky to be present at one of his rare appearances in Cambridge, when he gave a lecture with the title "Newton, the Man." ...Four years later he died of heart failure, precipitated by overwork and the hardships of crossing the Atlantic repeatedly in slow propeller-driven airplanes under wartime conditions.freeman dyson

Vain was the chief's, the sage's pride! They had no poet, and they died.
What self-righteous persons take to themselves, is the same work that Christ was engaged in when He was in His agony and bloody sweat, and when He died on the cross, which was the greatest thing that ever the eyes of angels beheld.

Yet this is the part which self-righteous persons go about to accomplish for themselves.
He first deceas'd; she for a little tri'd To live without him, lik'd it not, and died.
The very word 'Christianity' is a misunderstanding in truth, there was only one Christian, and he died on the cross.friedrich nietzsche
