good quote

About once every year or so, I come across a quote that is so good that I'll tape it inside the cover of my Bible. I used Joan of Arc as a sermon illustration a few weeks ago. As she was burning at the stake for political purposes under the charge of heresy, she was given the chance to recant. Instead, she said this:
Every may gives his life for what he believes. And every woman gives her life for what she believes. Sometimes people believe in little or nothing and yet they give their lives to that little or nothing. One life is all we have. We live it and it is gone. But to live without belief is more terrible than dying, even more terrible than dying young.
