– Todd Tiahrt
A lot of people… kind of make heroes that are separate from us, people who are, you know, like… John Wayne and Errol Flynn and, you know, Denzel Washington… people who are different, who are larger than life.
– Walter Mosley
We’re our own dragons as well as our own heroes, and we have to rescue ourselves from ourselves.

– William Kraft
Heroes are people who rise to the occasion and slip quietly away.

I don’t compete with actresses; I only compete with heroes.
– Sonam Kapoor
Does the novel have to deepen the psychology of its heroes? Certainly the modern novel does, but the ancient legends did not do the same. Oedipus’ psychology was deduced by Aeschylus or Freud, but the character is simply there, fixed in a pure and terribly disquieting state.
– Umberto Eco
Vietnam helped me realize who the true heroes really are in this world. It’s not the home-run hitters.
– Willie Stargell
Each time a new disaster puts miners in the news, the press tries to make them into heroes, but they don’t quite fit the bill. They don’t march off to war or rush into burning buildings or rid our streets of crime.

The final cover for ‘Heroes Are My Weakness’ feels exactly right. It reflects the cold, wintry setting of an isolated island off the coast of Maine and the feisty spirit of a heroine who refuses to give up, even when the odds are stacked against her.
– Susan Elizabeth Phillips
I try to give both my heroes and villains an emotional dimensionality which provides the motivation for their actions.

I got my first television at Stanford when I was 20, and I used to watch ‘The Dick Van Dyke Show’. He played my father on ‘Becker,’ and he’s still one of my heroes. Along with John Cleese, he’s my favourite physical comedian.
– Ted Danson
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.
– Tom Stoppard
