Edith Cavell
It was a pity that Miss Cavell had to be executed, but it was necessary. She was judged justly. We hope it will not be necessary to have any more executions.
Cavell quotes
I thank God for this ten weeks' quiet before the end... Life has always been hurried and full of difficulty... This time of rest has been a great mercy.
Someday, somehow, I am going to do something useful, something for people. They are, most of them, so helpless, so hurt and so unhappy.

Cavell Edith quotes
I have no fear nor shrinking; I have seen death so often that it is not strange or fearful to me.
Cavell Edith
I canít stop while there are lives to be saved.
Edith Cavell quotes
They have all been very kind to me here. But this I would say, standing as I do in view of God and eternity, I realize that patriotism is not enough. I must have no hatred or bitterness towards anyone.
