“كانت ملابسهم رثة، غير أن نظرات السلام و التصميم على النصر علت وجوههم و هم نائمون.. لقد أدركت الآن لماذا كان هؤلاء الرجال على استعداد للموت دون أن يهتز لهم جفن، ففي اليوم الذي قضيته معهم لاحظت مدى تمسكهم بدينهم و اعتصامهم بحبل الله .. و لم يخطر ببالهم و لو للحظة أن يضيقوا بما قسمه الله لهم مهما كان مصيرهم .. فقد كانوا يحمدون الله و هم تحت المشانق على نعمة الحياة التي وهبها الله إياهم و يتحملون أي معاناة .. كانوا هؤلاء الرجال النائمون أمامي فقراء و أميين .. فلم يعرفوا القراءة .. بل كانوا يكتبون أسمائهم بصعوبة .. و لكنهم كانوا بالنسبة لي أنبل من رأيت من البشر”
