“If you board the wrong train it is no use running along the corridor in the opposite direction.” – Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

Bonhoeffer was a German pastor who was hung by the Nazis a few weeks before the end of World War II for his part in the plot to assassinate Adolph Hitler. With this quote, he is responding to those who suggested he should remain within the Nazified German Church to work on reforming the church from within. You can find out more about Bonhoeffer in Eric Metaxis excellent biography of him, Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy.
