But to the hero, when his sword
  Has won the battle for the free,
    Thy voice sounds like a prophet's word,
      And in its hollow tones are heard
        The thanks of millions yet to be.
      Fitz-Greene Halleck

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do.
      Eleanor Roosevelt

It was involuntary.  They sank my boat.
    John F. Kennedy (on being asked how he had become a hero)
