Heroism

Famous quotes containing the word heroism:

    There is a heroism in crime as well as in virtue. Vice and infamy have their altars and their religion.
    William Hazlitt (1778–1830)

    The greatest obstacle to being heroic is the doubt whether one may not be going to prove one’s self a fool; the truest heroism is to resist the doubt; and the profoundest wisdom, to know when it ought to be resisted, and when it be obeyed.
    Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804–1864)

    I will put in my poems, that with you is heroism, upon land and sea—And
    I will report all heroism from an American point of view.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)
