Guess who said this?

“I would rather be beaten and be a man than to be elected and be a little puppy dog. I have always supported measures and principles and not men. I have acted fearlessly and independent and I never will regret my course. I would rather be politically buried than to be hypocritically immortalized.”

Yep.  You guessed it.  Former Congressman Crockett (AJ-TENN).

I am convinced that it is not the fear of death, of our lives ending that haunts our sleep so much as the fear … that as far as the world is concerned, we might as well never have lived.

– Rabbi Harold Kushner
