We died before we came

James Calvert (1813–1892) was a missionary to the cannibals of the Fiji Islands. As they arrived at the Islands the ship’s captain tried to turn him back, saying, “You will lose your life and the life of those with you if you go among such savages.” To which Calvert replied ‘We died before we came here.”
