But each one, man by man, has won imperishable praise!
Each has won a glorious grave - not that sepulchre of earth wherein they lie, but the living tomb of everlasting remembrance wherein their glory is enshrined.
Remembrance that will live on the lips, that will blossom in the deeds of their countrymen the world over.
For the whole world is the sepulchre of heroes. Monuments may rise and tablets be set up to them in their own land, but on far-off shores there is an abiding memorial that no pen or chisel has traced; it is graven, not on stone or brass, but on the living heart of humanity.
Take these men as your example.
prosperity can only be for the free, that freedom is the sure possession of those alone who have the courage to defend it......
Pericles (495 - 429 BC).
