“Heroism ... is endurance for one moment more.”
George F. Kennan
“A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.”
“Heroism on command, senseless violence, and all the loathsome nonsense that goes by the name of patriotism -how passionately I hate them!”
“The legacy of heroes is the memory of a great name and the inheritance of a great example.”
“A hero is no braver than an ordinary man, but he is braver five minutes longer.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Alfred North Whitehead
“All actual heroes are essential men, / And all men possible heroes...”
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
