Quotes: Martyr Without a Cause
"The mark of the immature man is that he wants to die nobly for a cause, while the mark of a mature man is that he wants to live humbly for one."
Wilhelm Stekel

"The only difference between a suicide and a martyrdom is press coverage."

Martyrdom... is the only way in which a man can become famous without ability.
George Bernard Shaw, The Devil's Disciple (1901) act 3

What is it with you Winchesters, huh? You, your dad - you're both just itching to throw yourselves down the pit.
Anyway, thanks a bunch! I knew I kept you alive for a reason - until now, anyway. I couldn't have done it without your pathetic, self-loathing, self-destructive desire to sacrifice yourself for your family.
Bobby and Azazel to Dean, Supernatural, the exact same episode
