Justin Martyr on the value of the truth

The citation from Philip Doddridge that was quoted in an earlier post on this blog is an echo--albeit probably unconscious--of this from the second-century Christian apologist Justin Martyr: “the lover of truth must choose, in every way possible, to do and say what is right, even when threatened with death, rather than save his own life.” [1]
