Heroes Quotes

Some men worship rank, some worship heroes, some worship power, some worship God, & over these ideals they dispute & cannot unite but they all worship money.

Samuel Langhorne Clemens

Heroes and victims are the product of the mood they were in when opportunity came or when circumstances were at their worst.

Jorge Luis Borges

We dont need any more heroes; we just need someone to take out the recycling.

The ancients had a taste, let us say rather a passion, for the marvellous, which caused them to forget even the sacred duties of gratitude. Observe them, for example, grouping together the lofty deeds of a great number of heroes, whose names they have not even deigned to preserve, and investing the single personage of Hercules with them. The lapse of ages has not rendered us wiser in this respect. In our own time the public delight in blending fable with history. In every career of life, in the pursuit of science especially, they enjoy a pleasure in creating Herculeses.

There are obstinate and unknown braves who defend themselves inch by inch in the shadows against the fatal invasion of want and turpitude. There are noble and mysterious triumphs which no eye sees.
