A quote for our times? You be the judge.
Euripides apparently lived from 480 to 406 BC. A tragedian playwright in Ancient Greece, he has influenced drama into our modern times, especially the portrayal of mythical heroes as ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances.
Make no mistake, history repeats itself until we decide to do it differently. I think we will see many heroes emerge in the coming days, people who never dreamed they had greatness within them. Will you be one of them?
“Everybody is special. Everybody. Everybody is a hero, a lover, a fool, a villain. Everybody. Everybody has their story to tell.”
~ Alan Moore
“Heroes are ordinary people who make themselves extraordinary.”
~ Gerard Way
“A hero is no braver than an ordinary man, but he is brave five minutes longer.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
“We are our own dragons as well as our own heroes, and we have to rescue ourselves from ourselves.”
~ Tom Robbins
