If you still give when all the world has done is take from you,

if you still smile when life does nothing but frown,

if you are still warm to those frozen in their own predilections,

I applaud you.

That is heroism,

that is martyrdom in a world that condemns self-sacrifice,

that is true bravery—it does more than the world deserves and asks nothing in return.
