Prefiero morir de pie, que vivir de rodillas. Emiliano Zapata.

"It's better to die upon your feet than to live upon your knees."

I picked this up in the men's restroom at Zapata's Border Café in Port St Lucie, Florida.

I saw the black and white movie Viva Zapata with Marlon Brando many years ago. A line I remember from it was "Circle that man's name"

Massachusett's snowbird.
