2.15 (tr. John Jackson):
Was there another course left for them but to hold their freedom or to die before enslavement?
aliud sibi reliquum quam tenere libertatem aut mori ante servitium?
Winston S. Churchill, The Gathering Storm
= The Second World War
, Vol. I (1948; rpt. Harmondsworth: Penguin Books, 1985), p. 312:
Still, if you will not
fight for the right when you can easily win without
bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure
and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you
will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a
precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse
case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of
victory, because it is better to perish than live as slaves.
