Alas! Am I so horribly and cruelly used, that my clean body, never yet defiled, must this day be burnt and turned to ashes! Ha! Ha! I would rather be beheaded seven times than suffer burning.
Joan of Arc in prison on the day of her execution1(p143)

I pray you go to the nearest church, and bring me the cross, and hold it up level to my eyes until I am dead.
Joan of Arc at the stake just before burning1(p144)
