From MacDiarmid to La Pasionaria

My big cousin - okay not big, just old(er) - Lorna liked the Hugh MacDiarmid quote I had on here the other day and sent me her favourite one.

It's from Dolores Ibarruri Gomez who was also known as La Pasionaria which means Passion Flower. You can find out more about her and her involvement in the Spanish Civil War here but meantime, the quote:

"Better to die on your feet than live forever on your knees".

Verdadero. Muy verdadero.
