Giordano Bruno 

I have fought: that is much. Victory is in the hands of fate. Be that as it may with me, this at least future ages will not deny of me, be the victor who it may – that I did not fear to die, yielded to none of my fellows in constancy, and preferred a spirited death to a cowardly life. (These were the final words of Giordano Bruno (1548-1600), an Italian philosopher who refused to recant his beliefs when being tried by the Inquisition.)
