Joan was burned at the stake aged nineteen though not before she had led an incredible life. These words are reported to have been spoken by her when she knew she would die, and having had the chance to recant and be spared.
“Everyone gives their life for what they believe. Sometimes people believe in little or nothing and yet they give their life to that little or nothing. One life is all we have, and we live it, and then it’s gone. But to give up what we you are and to live without belief is more terrible than dying, even more terrible than dying young.”
Joan of Arc
