“Great heroes need great sorrows and burdens, or half their greatness goes unnoticed”
Peter S. Beagle
“To know how glorious you are, it is only after your death.”
“Formerly we used to canonize our heroes. The modern method is to vulgarize them. Cheap editions of great books may be delightful, but cheap editions of great men are absolutely detestable.”
“The noir hero is a knight in blood caked armor. He's dirty and he does his best to deny the fact that he's a hero the whole time.”
“The world needs heroes and it's better they be harmless men like me than villains like Hitler.”
“The Americans are certainly hero-worshippers, and always take their heroes from the criminal classes.”
“The medals of the dead heroes are the coins for the future. (Les médailles des héros morts - Sont les pièces pour l'avenir.)”
Charles de LEUSSE
