Heroes quotes by Thomas Browne
#18. Live by old Ethicks and the classical Rules of Honesty. Put no new names or notions upon Authentick Virtues and Vices. Think not that Morality is Ambulatory; that Vices in one age are not Vices in another; or that Virtues, which are under the everlasting Seal of right Reason, may be Stamped by Opinion. And therefore though vicious times invert the opinion of things, and set up a new Ethicks against Virtue, yet hold thou unto old Morality; and rather than follow a multitude to do evil, stand like Pompey's pillar conspicuous by thyself, and single in Example of Virtue; since no Deluge of Vice is like to be so general but more than eight will escape; Eye well those Heroes who have held their Heads above Water, who have touched Pitch, and have not been defiled, and in the common Contagion have remained uncorrupted. #Quote by Thomas Browne
Heroes quotes by H. P. Blavatsky
#19. The myths," says Horace in his Ars Poetica, "have been invented by wise men to strengthen the laws and teach moral truths." While Horace endeavored to make clear the very spirit and essence of the ancient myths, Euhemerus pretended, on the contrary, that "myths were the legendary history of kings and heroes, transformed into gods by the admiration of the nations." It is the latter method which was inferentially followed by Christians when they agreed upon the acceptation of euhemerized patriarchs, and mistook them for men who had really lived. #Quote by H. P. Blavatsky
Heroes quotes by Mark Twain
#20. Our heroes are men who do things which we recognize, with regret, and sometimes with a secret shame, that we cannot do. #Quote by Mark Twain
Heroes quotes by Laurence Overmire
#21. It takes no genius to destroy. The creators, the givers, the lovers, the healers - these are the heroes who know - the building up is so much more difficult than the tearing down. #Quote by Laurence Overmire
Heroes quotes by Richard Ayoade
#22. Heroes hate wasting time. 'You're wasting my time,' they'll say. Yet they devote very little time to time management, and rarely consult a diary. #Quote by Richard Ayoade
Heroes quotes by Robert Pattinson
#23. Outside of my family, I don't really know. They're great people and my parents are great parents, and they brought me up very well, I think. I don't know, I think that's about all the heroes I've had. #Quote by Robert Pattinson
Heroes quotes by Matthias Schoenaerts
#24. I like underdogs, I like anti-heroes - people that have a hard time overcoming things in life. #Quote by Matthias Schoenaerts
Heroes quotes by J.V. Jones
#25. He was dirty, his hair unkempt, his clothes stained with blood. Heroes in stories somehow managed to rescue maidens while looking like court dandies. Next time he went adventuring he'd remember to bring a comb. #Quote by J.V. Jones
Heroes quotes by Chris Hayes
#26. It's very difficult to talk about the war dead and the fallen without invoking valor, without invoking the words 'heroes.' I feel ... uncomfortable about the word hero because it seems to me that it is so rhetorically proximate to justifications for more war. #Quote by Chris Hayes

Heroes quotes by Bono
#31. The reason I'm attracted to the light of Scripture is because there's another side of me that is dark. The reason I am interested in men of peace is because I'm not like them and would like to be. I'm not someone in real life who turns the other cheek. #Quote by Bono
Heroes quotes by Josh James Riebock
#32. Knowledge and belief are sometimes worlds apart. #Quote by Josh James Riebock
Heroes quotes by Jay Kristoff

Heroes quotes by Christopher Moore
#34. Tuck watched the sun bubble into the ocean. Columns of vertical cumulus clouds turned to cones of pink cotton candy, then as the sun became a red wafer on the horizon, they turned candy-apple red, with purple rays reaching out of them like searchlights. The water was neon over wet asphalt, blood-spattered gunmetal - colors from the cover of a detective novel where heroes drink hard and beauty is always treacherous. #Quote by Christopher Moore
Heroes quotes by Nick Cannon
#35. I like underground rappers - Cory Gunz is a young kid that's been really doing his thing. I'm a Gym Class Heroes type of fan even though they're not new, but they're definitely trendsetters. #Quote by Nick Cannon
Heroes quotes by Hunter S. Thompson
#37. That is the problem with this rich and anguished generation. Somewhere a long time ago they fell in love with the idea that politicians- even the slickest and brightest presidential candidates- were real heroes and truly exciting people. That is wrong on its face. They are mainly dull people with corrupt instincts and criminal children. #Quote by Hunter S. Thompson
Heroes quotes by Rachel Held Evans
#38. Perhaps the most radical thing we followers of Jesus can do in the information age is treat each other like humans-not heroes, not villains, not avatars, not statuses, not Republicans, not Democrats, not Calvinists, not Emergents-just humans. This wouldn't mean we would stop disagreeing, but I think it would mean we would disagree well. #Quote by Rachel Held Evans
Heroes quotes by Warren Farrell
#39. Virtually every society that survived did so by socializing its sons to be disposable. Disposable in war; disposable in work. We need warriors and volunteer firefighters, so we label these men heroes. #Quote by Warren Farrell
Heroes quotes by Cassandra Clare
#40. There is a coldness to the Clave, it is true. We are dust and shadows. But you are like the heroes of ancient times, like Achilles and Jason."
"Achilles was murdered with a poisoned
arrow, and Jason died alone, killed by his own rotting ship. Such is the fate of heroes; the Angel knows why anyone would want to be one. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Heroes quotes by Bradley Sands
#41. Sometimes the good guy rips out innocent people's throats. That's just something the world need to live with if it wants the good guy to keep saving the day. #Quote by Bradley Sands
Heroes quotes by Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.
#42. For I say to you in all the sadness of conviction, that to think great thoughts you must be heroes as well as idealists. Only when you have worked alone – when you have felt around you a black gulf of solitude more isolating than that which surrounds the dying man, and in hope and in despair have trusted to your own unshaken will – then only will you have achieved. Thus only can you gain the secret isolated joy of the thinker, who knows that, a hundred years after he is dead and forgotten, men who have never heard of him will be moving to the measure of his thought – the subtle rapture of a postponed power, which the world knows not because it has no external trappings, but which to his prophetic vision is more real than that which commands an army. #Quote by Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.
Heroes quotes by James P. Carse
#43. There is no narrative without structure, or plot. In a great story this structure seems like fate, like an inescapable judgment descending on its still unaware heroes, a great metaphysical causality, that crowds out all room for choice. Fate arises not as a limitation on our freedom, but as a manifestation of our freedom, testimony that choice is consequent. The exercise of your freedom cannot prevent the exercise of my own freedom, but it can determine the context in which I am to act freely. You cannot make choices for me, but you can largely determine what my choices will be about. Great stories explore the drama of this deeper touching of one free person by another. They are therefore genuinely sexual dramas astounding us once more with the magic of origins. #Quote by James P. Carse
Heroes quotes by Edna St. Vincent Millay
#44. Let geese
Gabble and hiss, but heroes seek release
From dusty bondage into luminous air. #Quote by Edna St. Vincent Millay
Heroes quotes by Camron Wright
#45. Parents are strange and wonderful creatures. When you're small they seem bright, shiny, and invincible. As you grow, that image starts to fade. It's a sobering moment, but the time will come when you realize they are not the heroes you imagined. They are just people struggling to do the best they can, just the same as you are.You will feel let down, betrayed, even ashamed. This is the time, ... when you need to forgive your parents for being human. #Quote by Camron Wright
Heroes quotes by Stephen T. Asma
#46. Wherever we find monsters, there, too, we also find heroes. #Quote by Stephen T. Asma
Heroes quotes by Amber Kizer
#47. Everything changes. Everything is temporary, except for the sky. When you find yourself caught up in the horrors or heroes of a lifetime, look up. Don't look down. That which is beneath our feet is liquid, but the sky, the sky is solid, constant, ever ready and ever hopeful that the sun will rise in the morning and the moon will rise at night. They don't really set, you know. They're always rising, just rising for someone else. #Quote by Amber Kizer
Heroes quotes by R.J. Palacio
#48. The things we do are the most important things of all. They are more important than what we say or what we look like. The things we do outlast our mortality. The things we do are like monuments that people build to honor heroes after they've died. #Quote by R.J. Palacio
Heroes quotes by Henry Miller
#49. Boris has just given me a summary of his views. He is a weather prophet. The weather will continue bad, he says. There will be more calamities, more death, more despair. Not the slightest indication of a change anywhere. The cancer of time is eating us away. Our heroes have killed themselves, or are killing themselves. The hero, then, is not Time, but Timelessness. We must get in step, a lock step, toward the prison of death. There is no escape. The weather will not change. #Quote by Henry Miller
Heroes quotes by Gerard De Marigny
#50. To me, empathy and compassion are among the bravest of emotions ... and faith, the bravest of convictions. #Quote by Gerard De Marigny
Heroes quotes by Kristen Ciccarelli
#51. The old heroes were called Namsara after a beloved god, he said. So she would be called Iskari, after a deadly one. #Quote by Kristen Ciccarelli
Heroes quotes by Sandra Brown
#52. He made a costly error in judgement and sent an entire regiment into a virtual slaughterhouse. It happens frequently. Officers risk their troops' lives for the sake of a promotion. Not my father. He valued the life of every man under his command, from his officers to the humblest fresh recruit. When he realized what had happened, he was devastated. He couldn't ever forget that his error had cost the lives of so many men, created so many widows and orphans..."
"But, Lyon, measured against his valor, one mistake is forgivable."
"To us, yes. Not to him. He was sickened that the battle was hailed as one of the turning points of the war. He was decorated for it. It was considered a great victory, but it defeated him as a soldier, as a man. When he came home and was hailed a hero, he couldn't stand the conflict within himself. He didn't feel like a hero. He felt like a traitor."
"That can't be!"
"Not a traitor to his country, but to the men who had trusted his judgement and leadership. It was a conflict he never could reconcile, so he retired from the Army and came here and shut out the world and all reminders of the lie he was living."
They were quiet for a moment before she said,"No one would have thrown stones at him, Lyon. he was a respected man, a hero, a leader at a time in history when America needed heroes and leaders. It was a battleground that spread out for miles. Admist all the chaos he may have thought he made a mistake when he actually didn't. #Quote by Sandra Brown
Heroes quotes by John Frame
#53. Everything in Scripture has the force of law. What it teaches we are to believe; what it commands, we are to do. We should take its wisdom to heart, imitate its heroes, laugh at its jokes, trust its promises, and sing its songs. #Quote by John Frame
Heroes quotes by Avijeet Das
#54. We can't let the next generation grow up without heroes. Some of us have to fight on! #Quote by Avijeet Das
Heroes quotes by Tom Hardy
#55. I spent my entire experience with Gary [ on Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy] staring at him and not returning any lines because I think he's God. The second time [ on The Dark Knight Rises] I was playing God, so I ignored him. Kicked him a bit, that kind of thing. Gary Oldman is one of my heroes, I did nothing but glean from him. #Quote by Tom Hardy
Heroes quotes by George Lucas
#56. They were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Naturally they became heroes." Leia Organa of Alderaan, Senator #Quote by George Lucas
Heroes quotes by Julian Barnes
#57. Like what? The things Literature was all about: love, sex, morality, friendship, happiness, suffering, betrayal, adultery, good and evil, heroes and villains, guilt and innocence, ambition, power, justice, revolution, war, fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, the individual against society, success and failure, murder, suicide, death, God. And barn owls. #Quote by Julian Barnes
Heroes quotes by Zadie Smith
#58. No matter what anyone says, suicide takes guts. It's for heroes and martyrs, truly vainglorious men. Archie was none of these. He was a man whose significance in the Greater Scheme of Things could be figured along familiar ratios:
Pebble : Beach
Raindrop : Ocean
Needle : Haystack #Quote by Zadie Smith
Heroes quotes by Bret Easton Ellis
#59. Everything failed to subdue me. Soon everything seemed dull: another sunrise, the lives of heroes, falling in love, war, the discoveries people made about each other. The only thing that didn't bore me, obviously enough, was how much money Tim Price made, and yet in its obviousness it did. There wasn't a clear, identifiable emotion within me, except for greed and, possibly, total disgust. I had all the characteristics of a human being - flesh, blood, skin, hair - but my depersonalization was so intense, had gone so deep, that the normal ability to feel compassion had been eradicated, the victim of a slow, purposeful erasure. I was simply imitating reality, a rough resemblance of a human being, with only a dim corner of my mind functioning. Something horrible was happening and yet I couldn't figure out why - I couldn't put my finger on it. #Quote by Bret Easton Ellis
Heroes quotes by James Comey
#60. I come from a law enforcement family. My grandfather, William J. Comey, was a police officer. Pop Comey is one of my heroes. I have a picture of him on my wall in my office at the FBI, reminding me of the legacy I've inherited and that I must honor. #Quote by James Comey
Heroes quotes by Daniel Radcliffe
#61. I love Steve Carell and Will Ferrell - they're my heroes. #Quote by Daniel Radcliffe
Heroes quotes by Tom Stoppard
#62. One of the attractions of translating 'Heroes' is that it's not the kind of play that I write. If it had been, I probably wouldn't have wanted to translate it. There are no one-liners. It's much more a truthful comedy than a play of dazzling wit. #Quote by Tom Stoppard
Heroes quotes by Gunnar Myrdal
#63. America has had gifted conservative statesmen and national leaders. But with few exceptions, only the liberals have gone down in history as national heroes. #Quote by Gunnar Myrdal
Heroes quotes by Shane Claiborne
#64. We're remembering each other's heroes, too. We are learning each other's songs. We are reminding ourselves that we are a global family praying together. We're all trying to live in the light of the history that shines through the biblical narrative. #Quote by Shane Claiborne
Heroes quotes by Orson Scott Card
#65. They're so brave," she said.
"They're all dead."
"Only a coward would think of that," she said scornfully. #Quote by Orson Scott Card
Heroes quotes by Martin Luther
#66. Grace is given to heal the spiritually sick, not to decorate spiritual heroes #Quote by Martin Luther
Heroes quotes by Mohammed Saeed Al-Sahaf
#67. They fled. The American louts fled. Indeed, concerning the fighting waged by the heroes of the Arab Socialist Baath Party yesterday, one amazing thing really is the cowardice of the American soldiers. we had not anticipated this. #Quote by Mohammed Saeed Al-Sahaf
Heroes quotes by Juvenal
#68. Fond man! though all the heroes of your line Bedeck your halls, and round your galleries shine In proud display; yet take this truth from me
Virtue alone is true nobility! #Quote by Juvenal
Heroes quotes by Jakob Dylan
#69. I got to watch my heroes meet him and saw how they reacted, whether it was Joe Strummer or Tom Waits. It was peculiar. I'm so stoked to meet Tom Waits, and he's so nervous to meet my dad. It's a head spin. #Quote by Jakob Dylan
Heroes quotes by Brian Herbert
#70. Any true student must realize that History has no beginning. Regardless of where a story starts, there are always earlier heroes and earlier tragedies. #Quote by Brian Herbert
Heroes quotes by Jose Saramago
#71. I never appreciated 'positive heroes' in literature. They are almost always cliches, copies of copies, until the model is exhausted. I prefer perplexity, doubt, uncertainty, not just because it provides a more 'productive' literary raw material, but because that is the way we humans really are. #Quote by Jose Saramago
Heroes quotes by Margaret D. Klein
#72. My grandmother is a Holocaust survivor. Some heroes of mine have long been the Jewish Partisans, these young people who just went into the woods with whatever guns and bombs and what not they could get their hands on, and just would fight Nazis, and try to help people escape. #Quote by Margaret D. Klein
Heroes quotes by Daniel Johns
#73. If negative meant positive we'd be heroes. #Quote by Daniel Johns
Heroes quotes by Henry Giroux
#74. America's addiction to violence is partly evident in the heroes it chooses to glorify. #Quote by Henry Giroux
Heroes quotes by Austin Kleon
#75. The reason to copy your heroes and their style is so that you might somehow get a glimpse into their minds. That's what you really want - to internalize their way of looking at the wold. If you just mimic the surface of somebody's work without understanding where they are coming from, your work will never be anything more that a knockoff. #Quote by Austin Kleon
Heroes quotes by Tom Stoppard
#76. An artist is the magician put among men to gratify
capriciously
their urge for immortality. The temples are built and brought down around him, continuously and contiguously, from Troy to the fields of Flanders. If there is any meaning in any of it, it is in what survives as art, yes even in the celebration of tyrants, yes even in the celebration of nonentities. What now of the Trojan War if it had been passed over by the artist's touch? Dust. A forgotten expedition prompted by Greek merchants looking for new markets. A minor redistribution of broken pots. But it is we who stand enriched, by a tale of heroes, of a golden apple, a wooden horse, a face that launched a thousand ships
and above all, of Ulysses, the wanderer, the most human, the most complete of all heroes
husband, father, son, lover, farmer, soldier, pacifist, politician, inventor and adventurer ... #Quote by Tom Stoppard
Heroes quotes by Rick Riordan
#77. Pluto's pauldrons," Reyna cursed. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Heroes quotes by Oliver
#78. Heroes inspire us for many reasons: they make tough decisions, they keep going and they get done what matters. But there's another reason we love our heroes. Inside us all, we know we have the power to become one ourselves. #Quote by Oliver
Heroes quotes by Robert E. Morsberger
#79. Zorro also is part of the bandido tradition, most closely associated with the possibly mythical Joaquin Murrieta and the historical Tiburcio Vasquez. As well as these local California legendary figures, Zorro is an American version of Robin Hood and similar heroes whose stories blend fiction and history, thus moving Zorro into the timeless realm of legend. The original story takes place in the Romantic era, but, more important, Zorro as Diego adds an element of poetry and sensuality, and as Zorro the element of sexuality, to the traditional Western hero. Not all Western heroes are, as D. H. Lawrence said of Cooper's Deerslayer, "hard, isolate, stoic, and a killer," but in the Western genre the hero and villain more often than not share these characteristics. What distinguishes Zorro is a gallantry, a code of ethics, a romantic sensibility, and most significant, a command of language and a keen intelligence and wit. #Quote by Robert E. Morsberger
Heroes quotes by Jane Bowles
#80. Well," said Miss Goering, "perhaps my maneuvers do seem a little strange, but I have thought for a long time now that often, so very often, heroes who believe themselves to be monsters because they are so far removed from other men turn around much later and see really monstrous acts being committed in the name of something mediocre. #Quote by Jane Bowles
Heroes quotes by Robert The Bruce
#81. History is written by those who hang heroes. #Quote by Robert The Bruce
Heroes quotes by Hayden Panettiere
#82. I found myself Tivoing because I was working so much last season [of Heroes], I Tivoed all of the episodes so I could come back and watch them back to back to back and I found myself like I could not put my remote down. I was like, "Just one more episode, please." #Quote by Hayden Panettiere
Heroes quotes by Anton Gill
#83. The brutal aggression of these would-be soldiers and heroes, wrenched from hopelessness and unemployment and easily turned into unthinking zealots, chilled #Quote by Anton Gill
Heroes quotes by Alison Hawthorne Deming
#84. Teachers have been heroes to me, as well as artists and writers, and I'm honored to be among their ranks. There is always a lot of grousing about the academy. I suppose it comes from our all-American anti-authoritarianism. #Quote by Alison Hawthorne Deming
Heroes quotes by Peter Berg
#85. Michael Mann's always been one of my heroes. #Quote by Peter Berg
Heroes quotes by Gore Vidal
#86. Don't ever make the mistake with people like me thinking we are looking for heroes. There aren't any and if there were, they would be killed immediately. I'm never surprised by bad behaviour. I expect it. #Quote by Gore Vidal
Heroes quotes by Craig McCracken
#87. Yes, it's a prequel. It tells the story about how the girls were born with superpowers, but they weren't necessarily heroes at the beginning of this movie, so the movie is about the events that happen in their life to make them decide to be heroes. #Quote by Craig McCracken
Heroes quotes by Lou Reed
#88. The baby sits in front of MTV watching violent fantasies, while Dad guzzles beer with his favorite sport only to find his heroes all coked up. #Quote by Lou Reed
Heroes quotes by Victor Hugo
#89. Life, misfortune, isolation, abandonment, poverty, are the fields of battle which have their heroes; obscure heroes, who are, sometimes, grander than the heroes who win renown. #Quote by Victor Hugo
Heroes quotes by Rucy Ban
#90. After a few seconds of scraping, I realize what he has isn't a trail, it's a whole forest! Ack! Weren't all men supposed to shave their chest and stuff nowadays? Whatever happened to having fuzz-free Hollywood heroes as role models? At least my embarrassment is completely foregone by the irritation at his lack of upkeep. The only thing distracting me now is that heady mix of musk, shaving cream and a distinctly ... male scent. And God knows that is one seriously jeopardizing distraction. Especially with a whizzing needle in one's hand. #Quote by Rucy Ban
Heroes quotes by Alexander Pope
#91. foreign Tyrants and of Nymphs at home; Here thou, great ANNA! whom three realms obey. Dost sometimes counsel take - and sometimes Tea. Hither the heroes and the nymphs resort, To taste awhile the pleasures of a Court; 10 In various talk th' instructive hours they past, Who gave the ball, or paid the visit last; One speaks the glory of the British Queen, And one describes a charming Indian screen; A third interprets motions, looks, and eyes; 15 At ev'ry word a reputation dies. #Quote by Alexander Pope
Heroes quotes by Dean Kamen
#92. In the culture of America, in a free culture, you get what you celebrate. And in this culture, we have two obsessions, become a group that becomes a group that celebrates sports heroes and entertainment heroes. There's no room left for kids to see even a little bit of the opportunities to really, really get excited about becoming an inventor, an engineer, or a scientist, a problem solver. #Quote by Dean Kamen
Heroes quotes by Henry Rollins
#93. Why let your fury lay deep inside you, sullenly boiling your blood into silent steam and griding your bones to dust? I it not better to thrust it out with great velocity from every pore, with your every action? Let your actions speak your legend. The physical is the manifestation of the spirit. Let your spirit be teeming with fury. Let your strength be unusual and controlled. The average is the borderline that keeps mere men in their place. Those who step over the line are heroes by the very act. Go. #Quote by Henry Rollins
Heroes quotes by Stacie Orrico
#94. We all want heroes and we all want somebody to look up to. #Quote by Stacie Orrico
Heroes quotes by Jack Reynor
#95. I'd love to do a film with Michael Fassbender. He's one of my heroes. I think he's absolutely amazing and I would love to do a project with him. #Quote by Jack Reynor
Heroes quotes by Roger Lowenstein
#96. The modern spirit is a hesitant one. Spontaneity has given way to cautious legalisms, and the age of heroes has been superseded by a cult of specialization. We have no more giants; only obedient ants. #Quote by Roger Lowenstein
Heroes quotes by Rick Riordan
#97. So now I get the scepter? Jason asked.
Cupid laughed. Unfortunately, you could not wield it. Only a child of the Underworld can summon the dead legions. And only an officer of Rome can lead them. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Heroes quotes by Barry Pepper
#98. I identify with the Clint Eastwoods and Harrison Fords. Those are my heroes. #Quote by Barry Pepper
Heroes quotes by April Genevieve Tucholke
#99. All good Heroes are scared, if they know the evil they face. #Quote by April Genevieve Tucholke
Heroes quotes by Austin Kleon
#100. Think about your favorite work and your creative heroes. What did they miss? What didn't they make? What could've been made better? If they were still alive, what would they be making today? If all your favorite makers got together and collaborated, what would they make with you leading the crew? #Quote by Austin Kleon
Heroes quotes by Alfred North Whitehead
#101. True courage is not the brutal force of vulgar heroes, but the firm resolve of virtue and reason. #Quote by Alfred North Whitehead
Heroes quotes by Heinrich Heine
#102. Iron helmets will not save/
Even heroes from the grave/
Good man's blood will drain away/
While the wickid win the day. #Quote by Heinrich Heine
Heroes quotes by David Paul Kirkpatrick

Heroes quotes by Katharine Lee Bates
#104. Surely martyrs, irrespective of the special phase of the divine idea for which they gladly give up their bodies to torture and to death, are the truest heroes of history. #Quote by Katharine Lee Bates
Heroes quotes by Ryan Giggs
#105. I had my footballing heroes such as Bryan Robson and Diego Maradona but my dad was a rugby league star, and he was my real hero. But the relationship with my mum was rocky and we saw things that would affect any youngster. #Quote by Ryan Giggs
Heroes quotes by Linden Morningstar
#106. Lyn, this was the "Aha!" moment when Desta found another astonishing skeleton. Remarkably, it appeared utterly human but existed before humans walked the Earth. Clutched in its hand a small sphere attached to an elaborate gold necklace. The sphere was not like any material on Earth. Remember when I told you our origins might lie in the stars? Well, I think we found the answer in the Afar desert
Max #Quote by Linden Morningstar
Heroes quotes by Helen Smith
#107. Why aren't boys more engaged in school? According to Sommers, schools today tend to be run by women for girls. Classrooms can be hostile environments for boys. They like action, competition and adventure stories. Those are not in favor. Games like tag and dodge-ball are out; tug of war has become tug of peace, and male heroes have been replaced by Girl Power. #Quote by Helen Smith
Heroes quotes by Peter S. Beagle
#108. That is exactly what heroes are for. Wizards make no difference, so they say that nothing does, but heroes are meant to die for unicorns. #Quote by Peter S. Beagle
Heroes quotes by Michael J. Sullivan
#109. I had always worshiped heroes in stories. I had no idea I was surrounded by them. #Quote by Michael J. Sullivan
Heroes quotes by Robert J. Braathe
#110. We are here because the world needs heroes. #Quote by Robert J. Braathe
Heroes quotes by Boris Becker
#111. I want to be a hero, a small and good kind of hero, even though I know heroes have very short lives. #Quote by Boris Becker
Heroes quotes by Cullen Bunn
#112. I wholeheartedly believe that super heroes can play in virtually any storytelling genre. #Quote by Cullen Bunn
Heroes quotes by Nick Offerman
#113. My family has schoolteachers and librarians, and I think people who teach are probably some of our greatest American heroes. Certainly, underpaid and unsung. #Quote by Nick Offerman
Heroes quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#114. Little girls grow up thinking that knights in shining armor actually exist. But they don't. And if those valiant heroes ever did bless this world with their chivalrous deeds, I imagine, just like Christ's apostles, they were destroyed by envy on the battlefront. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Heroes quotes by Sean Maguire
#115. For me, personally, I grew up watching American heroes and American movies and TV. #Quote by Sean Maguire
Heroes quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#116. I have enormous respect for our military men and women, the everyday heroes who provide the security the rest of us enjoy. I don't like them in front of that door. #Quote by Karen Marie Moning
Heroes quotes by Rick Riordan
#117. Humans don't exist on the same level as immortals. They can't even be hurt by our weapons. But you,Percy - you are part god,part human.You live in both worlds.You can be harmed by both,and you can affect both. That's what makes heroes so special. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Heroes quotes by J.M. Coetzee
#118. If there were a way of putting an end to himself by some purely mental act he would put an end to himself at once, without further ado. His mind is full of stories of people who bring about their end - who methodically pay bills, write goodbye notes, burn old love letters, label keys, and then, once everything is in order, don their Sunday best and swallow down pills they have hoarded for the occasion and settle themselves on their neatly made beds and compose features for oblivion. Heroes all of them, unsung, unlauded. I am resolved not to be of any trouble. #Quote by J.M. Coetzee
Heroes quotes by R.J. Palacio
#119. The things we do outlast our mortality. The things we do are like monuments that people build to honor heroes after they've died. They're like the pyramids that the Egyptians built to honor the pharaohs. Only instead of being made of stone, they're made out of the memories people have of you. #Quote by R.J. Palacio
Heroes quotes by Brad Meltzer
#120. On the day my daughter was born, I started writing a book for her. The plan was that, over the course of her life, I'd fill it with advice on how to be a strong woman. But along the way, I got caught up in the stories of Amelia Earhart, Sally Ride, and so many others. So how do you pick the best heroes for your kids? #Quote by Brad Meltzer
Heroes quotes by Charlie Human
#121. Even having saved the world doesn't make me feel good about myself. Perhaps it's something you get habituated to; each new world-saving moment has to be bigger and better than the last to give you that same dopamine and serotonin kick. Maybe heroes are just junkies. #Quote by Charlie Human
Heroes quotes by Natalie Clifford Barney
#122. Hero worship has died with heroes, and if someone bows down today, it is to pick up something. #Quote by Natalie Clifford Barney
Heroes quotes by George Foreman
#123. 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. #Quote by George Foreman
Heroes quotes by Rory Stewart
#124. September 11th has produced only miniature heroes because our culture has freed itself from many of the old, dangerous, elitist fantasies of heroism ... But in so doing, we have not only tamed and diminished heroes. We have risked taming and diminishing ourselves. #Quote by Rory Stewart
Heroes quotes by C. Alexander London
#125. It is hard when our heroes fall, yes? - Alek Spasky #Quote by C. Alexander London
Heroes quotes by Neal Shusterman
#126. They say you never know who's the real hero and who's the real coward until you're looking death in the face. I've always been afraid of plenty of things, but fear isn't what makes you a coward. It's how depraved your heart becomes when fear gets pumped through it. #Quote by Neal Shusterman
Heroes quotes by Bernard Malamud
#127. Without heroes we are all plain people and don't know how far it is we can go. #Quote by Bernard Malamud
Heroes quotes by Jared Taylor
#128. Needless to say, what whites now think and say about race has undergone a revolution. In fact, it would be hard to find other opinions broadly held by Americans that have changed so radically. What whites are now expected to think about race can be summarized as follows: Race is an insignificant matter and not a valid criterion for any purpose - except perhaps for redressing wrongs done to non-whites. The races are equal in every respect and are therefore interchangeable. It thus makes no difference if a neighborhood or nation becomes non-white or if white children marry outside their race. Whites have no valid group interests, so it is illegitimate for them to attempt to organize as whites. Given the past crimes of whites, any expression of racial pride is wrong. The displacement of whites by non-whites through immigration will strengthen the United States. These are matters on which there is little ground for disagreement; anyone who holds differing views is not merely mistaken but morally suspect.
By these standards, of course, most of the great men of America's past are morally suspect, and many Americans are embarrassed to discover what our traditional heroes actually said. Some people deliberately conceal this part of our history. For example, the Jefferson Memorial has the following quotation from the third president inscribed on the marble interior: "Nothing is more certainly written in the book of fate than that these people [the Negroes] shall be free." Jeffers #Quote by Jared Taylor
Heroes quotes by Johnny Ramone
#129. Two of my biggest heroes were my father and John Wayne. #Quote by Johnny Ramone
Heroes quotes by Elizabeth Gaskell
#130. The world is not everything Ruth. Nor is the want of men's good opinion and esteem the highest need which man has. Teach Leonard this. You would not wish his life to be one summer's day. You dared not make it so, if you had the power. Teach him to bid a noble, Christian welcome to the trials which God sends - and this is one of them. Teach him not to look on a life of struggle, and perhaps of disappointment and incompleteness, as a sad and mournful end, but as the means permitted to the heroes and warriors in the army of Christ, by which to show their faithful following. Tell him of the hard and thorny path which was trodden once by the bleeding feet of One. Think of the Saviour's life and cruel death, and of His divine faithfulness ... We have all been cowards hitherto. God help us to be so no longer! #Quote by Elizabeth Gaskell
Heroes quotes by Joseph Hopkinson
#131. Hail, Columbia! happy land! Hail, ye heroes! heaven-born band! Who fought and bled in Freedom's cause. #Quote by Joseph Hopkinson
Heroes quotes by Rick Riordan
#132. Hazel!" he yelled. "That box! Open it!"
She hesitated, then saw the box he meant. Te label read WARNING. DO NOT OPEN.
"Open it!" Leo yelled again. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Heroes quotes by Ted Nugent
#133. I put my heart and soul everyday into showing my appreciation for the incredible sacrifices of the US Military heroes by using my freedom and rights, that they provided and safeguarded at such sacrifice, to the best of my ability fighting the enemies at home. #Quote by Ted Nugent
Heroes quotes by Karen Traviss
#134. I've never met a soldier who knew he was a hero. It's not false modesty. They simply decide to do something that they know they must do, usually for there comrades, because if they don't, those people will suffer in some way. For them, that compulsion is far stronger than any fear. The fact we find it exceptional is a sad indictment of the human race. I'd like to live in a world of heroes. If we did, there would be no wars. #Quote by Karen Traviss
Heroes quotes by Anonymous
#135. People love villains almost as much as they love heroes. Nothing satisfies discontent so much as having a fiend to vilify, an embodiment of all that is wrong with the world. #Quote by Anonymous
Heroes quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#136. Friends are the real superheroes. They battle our worst enemies - loneliness, grief, anxiety, depression, fear, and doubt - every time they come around. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Heroes quotes by Adolf Hitler
#137. They refused to sing non-German songs. The greater the efforts made to win them away from their German allegiance, the more they exalted the glory of their German heroes. They stinted themselves in buying things to eat, so that they might spare their pennies to help the war chest of their elders. They were incredibly alert in the significance of what the non-German teachers said and they contradicted in unison. They wore the forbidden emblems of their own kinsfolk and were happy when penalized for doing so, or even physically punished. In miniature they were mirrors of loyalty from which the older people might learn a lesson. #Quote by Adolf Hitler
Heroes quotes by Bangambiki Habyarimana
#138. I don't like perfect heroes; I can't recognize myself in them. I like flawed heroes, like me. I want to see how they struggle with their flaws and in spite of that manage to slay the dragon. #Quote by Bangambiki Habyarimana
Heroes quotes by Margaret Atwood
#139. He says there are many ways to die and some are less pleasant than others. He says I am lucky I will never have to know things like this. "This country has no heroes," he says. "You should keep it that way. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Heroes quotes by Abraham Verghese
#140. The tide had turned, and the worst possible thing had happened: my heroes had become the "bad guys," and one didn't dare say otherwise. #Quote by Abraham Verghese
Heroes quotes by Chris Colfer
#141. People are not born heroes or villains; they're created by the people around them. #Quote by Chris Colfer
Heroes quotes by Kathy Reichs
#142. I spoke softly. "The cops will eat you alive, Benjamin Blue. You have to go."
Ben tensed, ready to argue.
"Detective Hawfield died. This is going to get serious. It's way too much heat for you. Please be sensible."
Ben hesitated. Then his shoulders slumped.
"Maybe you're right." Deep breath. "But you're taking away the other possibility, too."
"I don't understand." I glanced over my shoulder at the approaching vehicle. "What other possibility?"
He smiled wanly. "Ben Blue, The Hero. That kinda would've been nice."
I paused, at a loss for words. My heart broke for him.
"But that's okay." Ben dug keys from his pocket. "After all, we're Virals, not heroes. And that's fine. Plus, I'm not really the hero type."
He turned to leave.
Impulsively, I grabbed Ben's arm. Pulled him close.
Smashed my lips against his.
The kiss only lasted a second, but also an eternity.
Then I stepped back and shoved Ben toward the Explorer.
"Of course you're the type." I was grateful the darkness hid my blushes. "Now go."
Ben stared, stricken, thunderstruck. Hi and Shelton watched, wide-eyed with shock.
"Weirdest birthday ever," Hi whispered. #Quote by Kathy Reichs
Heroes quotes by Vijender Singh
#143. As far as action is concerned, our films have been coming up with some great sequences. In fact, I think Hollywood is copying Bollywood by getting their heroes to bash up 15 guys at a time. #Quote by Vijender Singh
Heroes quotes by Rick Riordan
#144. About five meters ahead, Nico was swinging his black sword with one hand, holding the scepter of Diocletian aloft with the other. He kept shouting orders at the legionnaires, but they paid him no attention.
Of course not, Frank thought. He's Greek.
[ ... ]
Jason's face was already beaded with sweat. He kept shouting in Latin: "Form ranks!" But the dead legionnaires wouldn't listen to him, either.
[ ... ]
"Make way!" Frank shouted. To his surprise, the dead legionnaires parted for him. The closest ones turned and stared at him with blank eyes, as if waiting for further orders.
"Oh, great ... " Frank mumbled. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Heroes quotes by Kelly Keaton
#145. There is power within great sacrifice, within noble deeds. There are moments ... brief, shining moments when the impossible becomes possible. #Quote by Kelly Keaton
Heroes quotes by Jay Kristoff
#146. All great blades have names. It's just how it's done." "Bollocks." Mercurio took back the dagger, held it up between them. "Naming your blade is the sort of faff reserved for heroes, girl. Men who have songs sung about them, histories spun for them, brats named after them. It's the shadow road for you and me. And you dance it right, no one will ever know your name, let alone the pig-sticker in you belt. You'll be a rumor. A whisper. The thought that wakes the bastards of this world sweating in the nevernight. The last think you will ever be in this world, girl, is someone's hero." Mercurio handed back the blade. "But you will be a girl heroes fear. #Quote by Jay Kristoff
Heroes quotes by Rowan Coleman
#147. I didn't see then what I see now, that the things that make us unremarkable are also the very things we'll fight to death to protect. Unremarkable things turn us into heroes. #Quote by Rowan Coleman
Heroes quotes by Armstrong Williams
#148. Receiving far less attention are the working class heroes, who go about their solitary work routines with quiet dignity, come home from another grueling day, yet still find time to interact with their children. #Quote by Armstrong Williams
Heroes quotes by Kenneth Clark
#149. Heroes do not easily tolerate the company of other heroes. #Quote by Kenneth Clark
Heroes quotes by Nadia Fezzani
#150. People who have suffered understand pain and are often the best at helping others. #Quote by Nadia Fezzani
Heroes quotes by Ronald Reagan
#151. Small business is the gateway to opportunity for those who want a piece of the American dream. [ ... ] Well, wouldn't it be nice to hear a little more about the forgotten heroes of America-those who create most of our new jobs, like the owners of stores down the street; the faithfuls who support our churches, synagogues, schools, and communities; the brave men and women everywhere who produce our goods, feed a hungry world, and keep our families warm while they invest in the future to build a better America? That's where miracles are made, not in Washington, D.C. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Heroes quotes by Abigail Adams
#152. If we mean to have Heroes, Statesmen and Philosophers, we should have learned women. The world perhaps would laugh at me, and accuse me of vanity, but you I know have a mind too enlarged and liberal to disregard the Sentiment. If much depends as is allowed upon the early Education of youth and the first principals which are instill'd take the deepest root, great benefit must arise from literary accomplishments in women. #Quote by Abigail Adams
Heroes quotes by Gore Vidal
#153. While campaigning, I got to know many high-school teachers, and let me say that the good ones are the unsung heroes of our society, and the bad ones are the gravediggers. #Quote by Gore Vidal
Heroes quotes by George R R Martin
#154. Most deserve to be forgotten. The heroes will always be remembered. The best." "The best and the worst." So one of us is like to live in song. "And a few who were a bit of both. Like him." He tapped the page he had been reading. "Who?" Ser Loras craned his head around to see. "Ten black pellets on a scarlet field. I do not know those arms." "They belonged to Criston Cole, who served the first Viserys and the second Aegon." Jaime closed the White Book. "They called him Kingmaker. #Quote by George R R Martin
Heroes quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#155. Truly, you understand the reverse art of alchemy, the depreciating of the most valuable things! Try, just for once, another recipe, in order not to realise as hitherto the opposite of what you mean to attain: deny those good things, withdraw from them the applause of the populace and discourage the spread of them, make them once more the concealed chastities of solitary souls, and say: morality is something forbidden! Perhaps you will thus attract to your cause the sort of men who are only of any account, I mean the heroic. But then there must be something formidable in it, and not as hitherto something disgusting! #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Heroes quotes by Larry Hagman
#156. All my heroes, I guess, like John Wayne and all those guys, they drank and they smoked and did all the manly things. It was expected of you. And now abstinence in all kinds of forms is a part of living. It's a pretty - I don't smoke anymore, I quit that 42 years ago #Quote by Larry Hagman
Heroes quotes by Andy Biersack
#157. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to any of your heroes. Become what you wish to be. #Quote by Andy Biersack
Heroes quotes by Rick Riordan
#158. The gods need heroes. They always have. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Heroes quotes by Virginia Postrel
#159. In a media culture, we not only judge strangers by how they look but by the images of how they look. So we want attractive pictures of our heroes and repulsive images of our enemies. #Quote by Virginia Postrel
Heroes quotes by Lord Dunsany
#160. Of pure poetry there are two kinds, that which mirrors the beauty of the world in which our bodies are, and that which builds the more mysterious kingdoms where geography ends and fairyland begins, with gods and heroes at war, and the sirens singing still, and Alph going down to the darkness from Xanadu. #Quote by Lord Dunsany
Heroes quotes by Peter Capaldi
#161. Real heroes are all around us and uncelebrated. #Quote by Peter Capaldi
Heroes quotes by Chris Wooding
#162. I wanted to write an adventure in the old-fashioned way, something to which I could apply the adjective 'rollicking' and not feel embarrassed. But I've never liked my heroes to be too heroic, so they ended up being a bunch of criminals instead. #Quote by Chris Wooding
Heroes quotes by Chris Abani
#163. We are hunting the demons that haunt others. We get a smell and off we go. And you know why, Sunil? You know why we are so good at hunting the demons of others? Because we are so good, gifted even, at stalking and evading our own. But all demons hunters think that they are really heroes, and you know what all heroes need? #Quote by Chris Abani
Heroes quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#164. Where there are villains, there will be heroes. Just wait. They will come. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Heroes quotes by Edward Gibbon
#165. The single combats of the heroes of history or fable amuse our fancy and engage our affections: the skillful evolutions of war may inform the mind, and improve a necessary, though pernicious, science. But in the uniform and odious pictures of a general assault, all is blood, and horror, and confusion ... #Quote by Edward Gibbon
Heroes quotes by Will Rogers
#166. We can't all be heroes because somebody has to sit on the curb and clap as they go by. #Quote by Will Rogers
Heroes quotes by Howard Zinn
#167. Furthermore, some of the best people in the country were connected with the Communist movement in some way, heroes and heroines one could admire. There was Paul Robeson, the fabulous singer-actor-athlete whose magnificent voice could fill Madison Square Garden, crying out against racial injustice, against fascism. And literary figures (weren't Theodore Dreiser and W. E. B. DuBois Communists?), #Quote by Howard Zinn
Heroes quotes by Kirsten Beyer
#168. It's hard for me to see characters as villains... just heroes with competing agendas. #Quote by Kirsten Beyer
Heroes quotes by Rivera Sun
#169. It was not the blatant evil that broke the soul. No, in the face of utter darkness, the human spirit often rose to soaring heights. It was the shades of gray, the nuances and subtleties that wore people down. It was dealing with sellouts and side deals, small injustices and petty grievances that turned heroes into stoop-shouldered, weary old men. That was how they crumbled, idealists like this young man. They tripped on the garbage heap of miserly greed and fearful half-measures. #Quote by Rivera Sun
Heroes quotes by George Santayana
#170. Until the curtain was rung down on the last act of the drama (and it might have no last act!) he wished the intellectual cripples and the moral hunchbacks not to be jeered at; perhaps they might turn out to be the heroes of the play. #Quote by George Santayana
Heroes quotes by Daniel James Brown
#171. When all is said and done I think the story tells us that hope is the heroes domain, not the fools. Because we dare to hope, even when doing so might undo us. We leave the worlds we create behind us, swirling in our wakes, eternal and effervescent with the beauty of our aspirations. #Quote by Daniel James Brown
Heroes quotes by Laurell K. Hamilton
#172. Heroes don't get anything but dead. #Quote by Laurell K. Hamilton
Heroes quotes by Victor Hugo
#173. Man's greatest actions are performed in minor struggles. Life, misfortune, isolation, abandonment and poverty are battlefields which have their heroes - obscure heroes who are at times greater than illustrious heroes. #Quote by Victor Hugo
Heroes quotes by Linda Ronstadt
#174. I feel sorry for a culture that depends too much on delegating its musical expression to professionals. It is fine to have heroes, but we should do our own singing first, even if it is never heard beyond the shower curtain. #Quote by Linda Ronstadt
Heroes quotes by William H Gass
#175. If you want to think about something really funny, kiddo, consider the fact that our favorite modern bad guys became villains by serving as heroes first
to millions. It is now a necessary apprenticeship. #Quote by William H Gass
Heroes quotes by Rick Riordan
#176. You'll find your destiny, and your hard journey will finally make sense. But first you must face many sorrows. I regret that, but heroes cannot be shaped any other way. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Heroes quotes by Norman Thomas
#177. Rebellion per se is not a virtue. If it were, we would have some heroes on very low levels. #Quote by Norman Thomas
Heroes quotes by Randeep Hooda
#178. I don't play the role of a villain, really, but I like playing anti-hero kind of roles. I like characters where there's conflict, drama, and more personal investment than just being heroes. #Quote by Randeep Hooda
Heroes quotes by Jet Li
#179. I wish heroes didn't exist. Whenever we need a hero, it's because there's a problem that needs to be solved; it's because two groups of people, or two countries, are hurting one another, so a hero is needed to save us. If everyone were at peace, if everyone were happy, why would we need heroes? The world is better off without heroes. #Quote by Jet Li
Heroes quotes by Renny Harlin
#180. I feel like I learned very early on that your heroes are only as powerful as your villains. And I'm attracted to intelligent villains. #Quote by Renny Harlin
Heroes quotes by Philip Dormer Stanhope
#181. We are really so prejudiced by our educations, that, as the ancients deified their heroes, we deify their madmen. #Quote by Philip Dormer Stanhope
Heroes quotes by John Carey
#182. Dickens' hypocrites are the prime beneficiaries of his inventive genius. The heroes and heroines have no imagination. We could scrap all the solemn parts of his novels without impairing his status as a writer. But we could not remove Mrs. Gamp or Pecksniff or Bounderby without maiming him irreparably. #Quote by John Carey
Heroes quotes by Charles R. Swindoll
#183. We are fortified by exemplary lives, especially those who have earned the right to be respected by their character, sacrifice, patience, and ability to press on in spite of hardship, injustice, pain, and failure. Our heroes do not have to be perfect. They must, however be courageous, authentic, clear-minded, and determined to endure no matter the sacrifice or cost. We need heroes of integrity and consistency, admirable men and women we can admire, not because they exemplify a quick burst of bravery, but because they represent the stuff of greatness and stay at it to the end. #Quote by Charles R. Swindoll
Heroes quotes by J. D. Souther
#184. My secret heroes were Joe Morello, Ray Charles - who is, in my opinion, the most dominant figure in musical history in the 21st century - and Frank Sinatra. Those are my heroes. And as a writer, when Bob Dylan came along, it was a miracle because he gave us all permission to say anything! #Quote by J. D. Souther
Heroes quotes by Siobhan Fallon
#185. It was "Boom Boom" Dupont who had ripped Kit out of the Humvee after the IED went off, the IED that turned the entire undercarriage of his truck into a fiery wall that consumed the five men inside. #Quote by Siobhan Fallon
Heroes quotes by John Piper
#186. All heroes are shadows of Christ #Quote by John Piper

#187. My ancestors were conquerors, though now they are heroes in our history." Glancing at Amos, he said, "But we wrote the history. #Quote by Raymond E. Feist
Heroes quotes by Henry Miller
#188. There will be more calamities, more death, more despair. Not the slightest indication of a change anywhere. The cancer of our time is eating us away. Our heroes have killed themselves, or are killing themselves. #Quote by Henry Miller
Heroes quotes by Dan Skinner
#189. Love does not make cowards. It creates heroes. #Quote by Dan Skinner
Heroes quotes by Luther Standing Bear
#190. Today the children of our public schools are taught more of the history, heroes, legends, and sagas of the old world than of the land of their birth, while they are furnished with little material on the people and institutions that are truly American. #Quote by Luther Standing Bear
Heroes quotes by Brandon Mull
#191. So many misconceptions surround the notion of heroism. Far too many categorize a hero as a champion on the battlefield, a commander of legions, a master of rare talent or ability. Granted, there have been heroes who fit those descriptions. But many men of great evil as well. Heed me. A hero sacrifices for the greater good. A hero is true to his or her conscience. In short, heroism means doing the right thing regardless of the consequences. Although any person could fit that description, very few do. Choose this day to be one of them.
(Beyonders - A World Without Heroes) #Quote by Brandon Mull
Heroes quotes by Jon Fitch
#192. Fans want heroes. They're bored. They want a hero and want to follow that guy. #Quote by Jon Fitch
Heroes quotes by Oliver North
#193. I like to tell people that I have the best job in the media. All I do is hang around with heroes. I do that every week for my 'War Stories' documentary series - and when FOX News wants - I go off and cover the young Americans we send to places like Afghanistan or Iraq. #Quote by Oliver North
Heroes quotes by Andy Partridge
#194. I met Jack Bruce, one of my heroes, in a studio while doing some recording. England had just beat Scotland in a big football match and I saw Jack trying to break into this refrigerator in the lounge, drunk out of his brain, and I didn't know what to say. #Quote by Andy Partridge
Heroes quotes by Richard K. Morgan
#195. The Lady Ishil gestured. "Oh, we asked. It wasn't difficult. Everyone in this pigsty of a town seems to know where you sleep." A delicately curled lip. She let him go. "And with who."
Ringil ignored that one. "I'm a hero, Mother. What do you expect? #Quote by Richard K. Morgan
Heroes quotes by Karl Wiggins
#196. Sir Richard Francis Burton was a cross between Indiana Jones and Captain Jack Sparrow, with perhaps a little piece of the warrior-poet Aragorn from Lord of the Rings thrown in for good measure. Or maybe I should rephrase that; all these swashbuckling film heroes, including probably John Rambo, may well have been loosely based on Burton and his life #Quote by Karl Wiggins
Heroes quotes by Katy Grant
#197. But wasn't my hero brave, like all heroes in every story I'd ever heard? #Quote by Katy Grant
Heroes quotes by Michael Patrick King
#198. 'Sex and The City' was made to correct the myth that if you were single at a certain age, you were a leper. Its four characters are heroes to a lot of women; they run around New York, or Gotham - but they have fancy shoes instead of capes. #Quote by Michael Patrick King
Heroes quotes by Rick Riordan
#199. War is a duty,' Mars continued. 'The only real choice is whether you accept it, and what you fight for. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Heroes quotes by Bangambiki Habyarimana
#200. You marvel and applaud big heroes in their big heroic actions, and forget you are a hero in your humble life and have modest heroic actions to complete yourself. #Quote by Bangambiki Habyarimana
