If people bring so much courage to the world the world has to kill them to break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places.
But those that will not break, it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially.
-Ernest Hemingway, an excerpt from The Martyrdom of Martin Luther King Jr.
