“A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.” – Joseph Campbell, American mythologist
“In the 21st century, I think the heroes will be the people who will improve the quality of life, fight poverty and introduce more sustainability.” – Bertrand Piccard, Swiss psychiatrist and balloonist
“We are all ordinary. We are all boring. We are all spectacular. We are all shy. We are all bold. We are all heroes. We are all helpless. It just depends on the day.” – Brad Meltzer, American political thriller novelist
