987.  Faith is powerful enough to immunize people against all appeals to pity, to forgiveness, to decent human feelings.  It even immunizes them against fear, if they honestly believe that a martyr’s death will send them straight to heaven.  (Faith & Martyr)  Professor Richard Dawkins, The Selfish Gene

 

 

2,486.  There are would-be murderers all round the world who want to kill you and me and themselves because they're motivated by what they think is the highest ideal ... The elephant in the room: an elephant called Religion.  The suicide bomber is convinced that in killing for his God, he will be fast-tracked to a special martyr’s heaven. (Religion & Faith & Fundamentalism & Kill & Murder & Martyr)  Professor Richard Dawkins, The Root of All Evil? The God Delusion

 

 

4,343.  Thousands of Christians are executed and become celebrated as martyrs.  (Humanity & Empire Roman & Christian & Martyr)  Mankind: The Story of All of Us III, History Channel 2012

 

 

12,865.  Stephen was stoned to death.  (Christian & Martyr)  Peter & Paul and the Christian Revolution I, PBS

 

 

30,841.  If I would have given way to an arbitrary way, for to have all laws changed according to the power of the sword, I needed not to have come here; and therefore I tell you (and I pray God it be not laid to your charge) that I am the martyr of the people.  (England & Charles I & Law & Martyr)  Charles I 

 

 

80,535.  Men reject their prophets and slay them, but they love their martyrs and honour those whom they have slain.  (Martyr & Prophet)  Fyodor Dostoevsky 1821-81, The Brothers Karamazov

 

 

80,536.  Every man has a right to utter what he thinks truth, and every other man has a right to knock him down for it.  Martyrdom is the test.  Ben Jonson

 

 

80,537.  Martyrdom ... the only way in which a man can become famous without ability.  George Bernard Shaw, The Devil's Disciple 1901

 

 

79,141.  I will die a martyr at the end.  (Libya & Martyr)  Muammar al-Gaddafi 23rd February 2011

 

 

80,538.  The tyrant dies and his rule is over, the martyr dies and his rule begins.  (Martyr & Tyrant)  Soren Kierkegaard

 

 

80,539.  His head was boiled, impaled upon a pole and raised above London Bridge.  So ended the life of Thomas More, one of the few Londoners upon whom sainthood has been conferred and the first English layman to be beatified as a martyr.  Peter Ackroyd

 

 

80,540.  Ideas grow quickly when watered with the blood of martyrs.  (Martyr & Idea)  Giuseppe Mazzini, attributed

 

 

80,541.  For a tear is an intellectual thing;

And a sigh is the sword of an angel-king;

And the bitter groan of a martyr’s woe

Is an arrow from the Almighty's bow.  William Blake, The Grey Monk

 

 

94,229.  That so many writers have been prepared to accept a kind of martyrdom is the best tribute that flesh can pay to the living spirit of man as expressed in his literature.  One cannot doubt that the martyrdom will continue to be gladly embraced.  To some of us, the wresting of beauty out of language is the only thing in the world that matters.  (Writing & Language & Martyr)  Anthony Burgess, English Literature: A Survey for Students 1958

 

 

78,891.  Martyrs make me exceedingly nervous.  (Law & Martyr)  Rumpole of the Bailey: Rumpole and the Old Boy Network s3e3
