I prefer to stay and fight. Sometimes I win, sometimes I get the snot beat out of me, but it's what I believe.

You often hear this quote attributed to Edmund Burke.

"For evil to triumph, the only thing necessary is for good men to do nothing."

Although it's not what Burke actually said, I prefer it to his original words:

"When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle."

Edmund Burke, "thoughts on the Cause of Present Discontents," 1770.
