Consider, that no jewel upon earth is comparable to a woman of virtue and honor; and, that the honor of the sex consists in the fair characters they maintain.
The wounds received in battle bestow honor, they do not take it away...
Liberty, as well as honor, man ought to preserve at the hazard of his life, for without it life is insupportable.
Liberty is one of the most precious gifts which heaven has bestowed on man with it we cannot compare the treasures which the earth contains or the sea conceals for liberty, as for honor, we can and ought to risk our lives and, on for the other hand, captivity is the greatest evil that can befall man.
