Quotes About Heroes

Great quotes about heroes make you think about the inspirational message behind them. Not everyone thinks they may be considered a hero within their lifetime, but circumstances beyond control may be the causal factor.

"A hero is no braver than an ordinary man, but he is braver five minutes longer." Ralph Waldo Emerson
"A man can be a hero if he is a scientist, or a soldier, or a drug addict, or a disc jockey, or a crummy mediocre politician. A man can be a hero because he suffers and despairs; or because he thinks logically and analytically; or because he is ''sensitive;'' or because he is cruel. Wealth establishes a man as a hero, and so does poverty. Virtually any circumstance in a man's life will make him a hero to some group of people and has a mythic rendering in the culture -- in literature, art, theater, or the daily newspapers." Andrea Dworkin
"Be your own hero, it's cheaper than a movie ticket." Doug Horton
"Down these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean, who is neither tarnished nor afraid... He is the hero, he is everything. He must be a complete man and a common man and yet an unusual man. He must be, to use a rather weathered phrase, a man of honor, by instinct, by inevitability, without thought of it, and certainly without saying it. He must be the best man in his world and a good enough man for any world." Raymond Chandler
"A hero is simply someone who rises above his own human weaknesses, for an hour, a day, a year, to do something stirring." Betty Deramus
"Life, misfortunes, isolation, abandonment, poverty, are battlefields which have their heroes; obscure heroes, sometimes, greater than the illustrious heroes." Victor Hugo
"One must think like a hero to behave like a merely decent human being." May Sarton
"Time makes heroes but dissolves celebrities." Daniel Boorstin
