Sophie Scholl

Life is always on the edge of death; narrow streets lead to the same place as wide avenues, and a little candle burns itself out just like a flaming torch does. I choose my own way to burn.

Sophia Magdalena Scholl (9 May 1921 – 22 February 1943) was a member of the White Rose non-violent resistance movement during Nazi regime in Germany. She was arrested on 18 February 1943, convicted of treason four days later and executed by guillotine a few hours after that.
