I learned how fast you can go from being an international hero to being a reference in a joke on a late night talk show.
The basis of drama is... the struggle of the hero towards a specific goal at the end of which he realises that what kept him from it was, in the lesser drama, civilisation and, in the great drama, the discovery of something that he did not set out to discover but which can be seen retrospectively as inevitable.
All the Chinese have to do is fly around the Moon and back, and they'll appear to have won the return to the Moon with humans. They could put one person on the surface of the Moon for one day and he'd be a national hero.
These manly sentiments, in private life, make good citizens; in public life, the patriot and the hero.
'Frida' was a joy; this was delicious, I couldn't wait every day to get to the set, although I was exhausted, and have my leg get cut off or lose the baby or be in her shoes and get to play my hero and be able to go places emotionally. You know, we live for parts like this. This is a dream for an actor.
It wasn't until we got over the self pity that we were able to accept suffering as apart of our life with Christ. A man or woman reaches this plane only when he or she ceases to be the hero.
I sometimes feel like I'm caught in a vise. Some people feel like I'm some kind of hero. Others hate me.
Neil Young is my hero, and such a great example. You know what that guy has been doing for the past 40 years? Making music. That's what that guy does.

So, it's cool that, yes, Hal Jordan is a superhero, but my character is a real-world hero in her own life.
You have to do bad things in order to become a hero. You have to make sacrifices.
I was a daredevil before, and after I lost my sight I was the same. I loved riding bikes, scooters and horses. I even learned to box. Muhammad Ali is my hero.

C. J. Cherryh
I don't want to be your hero. I want to be your brother. You know, I want to be your family member. I want to be your equal.
A hero has faced it all: he need not be undefeated, but he must be undaunted.
This character feels so much like my brother. He has two children. He has a wife. He works with me. He chooses to stay in New Hampshire because he wants his kids to grow up in the school they started with. He doesn't want them to lose friends. He is his family's hero.
He who seldom speaks, and with one calm well-timed word can strike dumb the loquacious, is a genius or a hero.
Johann Kaspar Lavater
Every true Christian is a soldier - of Christ - a hero 'par excellence'! Braver than the bravest - scorning the soft seductions of peace and her oft-repeated warnings against hardship, disease, danger, and death, whom he counts among his bosom friends.
A static hero is a public liability. Progress grows out of motion.
Richard E. Byrd
As far as superhero stories, what's appealing is of course that aspect of wish fulfillment.

Love of glory can only create a great hero; contempt of glory creates a great man.
Charles Maurice de Talleyrand

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
