A hero

My favourite quote on ‘hero-ship’ is

“An ordinary person facing extraordinary circumstances and acting with courage, honor, and self-sacrifice.”

I found a list of quotes exploring what it means to be a hero:

“Being a hero isn’t about letting others know you did the right thing, it’s about you knowing that you did the right thing.”- Grandpa Max Tennyson

“A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.”- Christopher Reeve

“Being a hero means ignoring how silly you feel”- Diana Wynne Jones

“A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.”- Joseph Campbell

“Hard times don’t create heroes. It is during the hard times when the ‘hero’ within us is revealed.”- Bob Riley

“All the best heroes are ordinary people who make themselves extraordinary.”- Gerad Way

“A hero is somebody who voluntarily walks into the unknown.”- Tom Hanks
