Quotations

The word hero is Greek, from a root that means ‘to protect and to serve’ (incidentally the motto of the Los Angeles Police Department). A Hero is someone who is willing to sacrifice his own needs on behalf of others, like a shepherd who will sacrifice to protect and serve his flock. At the root the idea of Hero is connected with self-sacrifice.” -- Christopher Vogler
