Es mejor morir de pie que vivir de rodillas
I forgive those who murder and steal because they did it out of necessity, but a traitor never
I want to die as a slave to principles, not to men
It is better to die fighting than to die on your knees
It is better to die on your feet than to live on your knees
Perdono al que roba al que mata, porque quizá lo hacen por necesidad, pero al traidor jamas
Prefiero morir de pie que vivir siempre arrodillado
TIERRA Y LIBERTAD
