In olden times, sacrifices were made at the altar, a practice which is still very much practiced.
- Helen Rowland 1875-1950, American Journalist
Sacrifice, which is the passion of great souls, has never been the law of societies.
- Henri Frederic Amiel 1821-1881, Swiss Philosopher, Poet, Critic
The whole point of a sacrifice is that you give up something you never really wanted in the first place. People are doing it around you all the time. They give up their careers, say -- or their beliefs -- or sex.
