Your quote:
Be ashamed to die unless you have won some victory for humanity.
~ Horace Mann, address at Antioch College, 1859
http://www.quotationspage.com/quotes/Horace_Mann/

Conveys so much more when seen in the context of:

"So, in the infinitely nobler battle in which you are engaged against error and wrong, if ever repulsed or stricken down, may you always be solaced and cheered by the exulting cry of triumph over some abuse in Church or State, some vice or folly in society, some false opinion or cruelty or guilt which you have overcome! And I beseech you to treasure up in your hearts these my parting words: Be ashamed to die until you have won some victory for humanity."
~ Horace Mann, the closing paragraph of his last Baccalaureate Sermon. It was given to the students of Antioch College in 1859
