Update 11:15 a.m.: The Sunday Times has lifted its paywall on Colvin's final piece.
Fearless, fantastic, and brave seem to be the instant reactions to the death of journalist Marie Colvin, but it's her own powerful words over the years that are the most fitting and perhaps the most eloquent way to remember her life. Colvin, who suffered an eye injury while reporting in Sri Lanka, said in 2010 service commemorating fallen journalists, "I faced that question when I was injured. In fact one paper ran a headline saying, has Marie Colvin gone too far this time? My answer then, and now, was that it is worth it."
Shocked by the news of the death of Anthony Shadid, a brilliant journalist and writer whose work glowed with his humanity and was always so kind and gentle. He will be so missed at a time when he was the best person to shed light on this strange new Middle East.
In her last interview with Reuters, the day before she died, Colvin described the increasingly "sickening", "merciless" violence in Syria and snipers in Baba Amr.
