Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Shakespeare, William

As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
