"Those who don’t want their little lives disturbed by anything bigger than themselves. Those with no sides and no causes … those people who roll up their spirits into tiny little balls so as to be safe. Safe?! From what? Life is always on the edge of death; narrow streets lead to the same place as wide avenues, and a little candle burns itself out just like a flaming torch does. I choose my own way to burn."
Sophie Scholl, German student and member of non-violent Nazi resistance group (via wirrow)
