How do we become heroes?

Plato - Athenian philosopher

A hero is born among a hundred, a wise man is found among a thousand, but an accomplished one might not be found even among a hundred thousand men.

Bob Riley - American politician

Hard times don't create heroes. It is during the hard times when the 'hero' within us is revealed.

Bob Dylan - American singer-songwriter, author, and visual artist 

I think of a hero as someone who understands the degree of responsibility that comes with his freedom.

Joseph Campbell - American professor of literature at Sarah Lawrence College who worked in comparative mythology and comparative religion

A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.
