Hard times don't create heroes. It is during the hard times when the 'hero' within us is revealed.
My brother is one of my true heroes. Steady and sober where I am impulsive and emotional.
Heroes get remembered, but legends never die.
Nobody is a villain in their own story. We're all the heroes of our own stories.
George R. R. Martin
Real heroes don't wear capes. Real superheroes wear uniforms and badges and stethoscopes! Real superheroes are members of our military, law enforcement, and first responders. Pretend superheroes wear capes!
My heroes are and were my parents. I can't see having anyone else as my heroes.
Heroes represent the best of ourselves, respecting that we are human beings. A hero can be anyone from Gandhi to your classroom teacher, anyone who can show courage when faced with a problem. A hero is someone who is willing to help others in his or her best capacity.
If you look in real life, it is very hard to describe people as good people, bad people, heroes or villains. People aren't bad people. They all have their justifications.
My heroes always are mostly my parents - my father especially, and my mom, who's passed on already. My dad is a very strong man, and by him being educated, and a principal and school superintendent over 37 years, he plays such a big role in my life.
If we mean to have heroes, statesmen and philosophers, we should have learned women.
My heroes are those who risk their lives every day to protect our world and make it a better place - police, firefighters and members of our armed forces.
I'm saying to be a hero is means you step across the line and are willing to make a sacrifice, so heroes always are making a sacrifice. Heroes always take a risk. Heroes always deviant. Heroes always doing something that most people don't and we want to change - I want to democratise heroism to say any of us can be a hero.
As we reflect back upon the tragic loss of Challenger and her brave crew of heroes who were aboard that fateful day, I am reminded that they truly represented the best of us, as they climbed aloft on a plume of propellant gasses, reaching for the stars, to inspire us who were Earthbound.
The greatest heroes are those who do their duty in the daily grind of domestic affairs whilst the world whirls as a maddening dreidel.
Day after day, ordinary people become heroes through extraordinary and selfless actions to help their neighbors.
Sylvia Mathews Burwell
When I was very young, most of my childhood heroes wore capes, flew through the air, or picked up buildings with one arm. They were spectacular and got a lot of attention. But as I grew, my heroes changed, so that now I can honestly say that anyone who does anything to help a child is a hero to me.
Heroes have a rough time because they stand up when they ought not to, they speak when they ought not to; they always have to go that extra mile.
In war the heroes always outnumber the soldiers ten to one.
H. L. Mencken
I've always seen first responders as unsung heroes and very special people because, when everyone else is running away from danger, they run into it.
A villain can be stylish, and his actions don't have to be explained. Heroes are boring in comparison, even anti-heroes, as there's always a justification for their bad actions.
In my opinion, villains are so much more interesting than heroes. So 'Suicide Squad' is just like, wow, so damn awesome.
Harley Quinn Smith
The soldiers that didn't come back were the heroes. It's a roll of the dice. If a bullet has your name on it, you're a hero. If you hear a bullet go by, you're a survivor.
My life will not be defined by a single political campaign. Those will come and go. But what has driven me to run for elected office in the past still drives me today: the knowledge that heroes do walk among us with tremendous strength and power.
How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes!
As you get older it is harder to have heroes, but it is sort of necessary.
I think police officers are modern day heroes. I think they protect us.
Cuba Gooding, Jr.
