Quotes about heroes:
A myth is a story that may or may not be true. There may not be records or other proof that they happened, but at least some parts of myths may be true. Some myths may have started as ‘true’ stories but as people re-told them some parts may have been changed by mistake, or to make them more interesting. All cultures have myths and this mythology has been developed over time. Mythology includes the legends of our history, our religions, stories of how the world was created, and our heroes. These stories have great symbolic power, and this may be a major reason why they survive as long as they do, sometimes for thousands of years.
A hero is a person who is admired for their courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities. It can be the main character in a book or a film or a person with superhuman qualities. It can also be a modern-day hero, a person who has performed a heroic act or simply our own personal hero, our role model, who we look up to.
Examples can be:
- a patriotic or national hero (sportsman, politician, human rights defender…..)
- a fictitious hero (superhero or film star)
- an icon or role model (fashion, tv, music)
- a defender of common values
- unknown heroes (war heroes, firemen, rescue workers, charity workers….)
- our own personal hero (member of the family who you look up to)
