Heroes -

He whom prosperity humbles, and adversity strengthens, is the true hero. -- Josh Billings, "Stray Children," Everybody's Friend, 1874

Real heroes are men who fall and fail and are flawed, but win out in the end because they've stayed true to their ideals and beliefs and commitments. - Kevin Costner

True merit, like a river, the deeper it is, the less noise it makes. - Edward F. Halifax (1881 &endash; 1959)

WITHOUT HEROES, we're all plain people and don't know how far we can go.- Bernard Malamud, The Natural
