Welcome to these Hero Quotes of the Day from my large collection of positive, romantic, and funny quotes.

Heroes set their own course.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

I honor you, Hero, for you do not play to the crowd.
You play to your own soul.
An audience of one fills the house with its appreciation and applause.
Others follow you, and may attempt to emulate you,
but that is not why you are a hero.
Fame may smile upon you, or it may not.
The world may cheer your name, or you may be the unknown warrior
who rescued comrades in battle,
or taught a young girl how to shed tears of joy.
Whatever you did, you did not do for fame.
If you had, you would not be a Hero.
You are a Hero for your bold courageous inspired action.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Let today be the day that you choose
to become your own greatest Hero.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

A hero may or may not lead other people,
but all heroes lead themselves.
