The righteous seem to die in the eyes of fools, but they only go to rest. Lord Jesus! Thou hast promised that those who come to Thee shall not be casted off. Behold, I am come; look on my, pity me, pardon my sins, and receive my soul!
– Last words of John Shultis, a martyr who was beheaded. From Foxes Book of Martyrs
I really like the first sentence of this quote. I have never thought of that before, but it is SO true!
