Men reject their prophets and slay them, but they love their martyrs and honor those whom they have slain. - Fyodor Dostoyevsky (The Brothers Karamazov Quotes)

Men reject their prophets and slay them, but they love their martyrs and honor those whom they have slain.[Не принимает род людской пророков своих и избивает их, но любят люди мучеников своих и чтят тех, коих замучили.]
