"A true hero never surrenders...He is distinguished from the others not by the great initial exploit or the pride with which he faces tortures and death but the constancy with which he repeats himself, the patience with which he suffers and reacts, the pride with which he hides his sufferings and flings them back in the face of the one who has ordered them. Not resigning himself is his secret, not considering himself a victim, not showing others his sadness and despair."
From: A Man by Oriana Fallaci
