“In the midst of the flame and the rack I have seen men not only not groan, that is little; not only not complain, that is little; not only not answer back, that is too little; but I have seen them smile, and smile with a good heart.”

Seneca, Stoic philosopher (1 B.C. – 65 A.D.), speaking in amazement of the faith and courage of Christians he witnessed being martyred.
