You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do.
      - Eleanor Roosevelt, You Learn by Living

To stand upon ramparts and die for our principles is heroic, but to sally forth to battle and win for our principles is something more than heroic.
      - Franklin Delano Roosevelt

Heroes are not known by the loftiness of their carriage, as the greatest braggarts are generally the merest cowards.
      - Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Do we weep for the heroes who died for us,
  Who living were true and tried for us,
    And dying sleep side by side for us;
      The martyr band
        That hallowed our land
          With the blood they shed in a tide for us?
      - Abram Joseph Ryan, C.S.A.

One thinks like a hero to behave like a merely decent human being.
      - May Sarton

There is more heroism in self-denial than in deeds of arms.
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca)

You cannot be a hero without being a coward.
      - George Bernard Shaw,
        John Bull's Other Island

One's prime is elusive. You little girls, when you grow up, must be on the alert to recognize your prime at whatever time of your life it may occur.
      - Muriel Spark,
        The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie

Hero-worship is strongest where there is least regard for human freedom.
      - Herbert Spencer

The last flash . . . and the hideous attack
  Dies like a wisp of storm--discouraged flame;
    And soon these battered heroes will come back,
      The same but yet not the same.
      - Louis Untermeyer, Return of the Soldiers
