This fourth trimester the unit is on the topic of heroes. So I asked students to submit their quotes on the subject. The ongoing assignment is to reflect on the quotes every two weeks and submit via e-mail.  I’ve gotten some interesting reflections!  Both English sections (Groups 9.1 & 10.1) are reflecting on the same quotes.

“The hero is one who kindles a great light in the world, who sets up blazing torches in the dark streets of life for men to see by.” Felix Adler

“Heroes take journeys, confront dragons, and discover the treasure of their true selves. ” Carol Lynn Pearson

“Hard  times don’t create heroes. It is during the hard times when the “hero” within us is revealed.” Bob Riley

“The ordinary man is involved in action, the hero acts. An immense difference.” Henry Miller

“A boy doesn’t have to go to war to be a hero; he can say he doesn’t like pie when he sees there isn’t enough to go around.” E.W. Howe

“True courage is not the brutal force of vulgar heroes, but the firm resolve of virtue and reason. ”  Alfred North Whitehead

“A hero must have a quest or he will fail in all his ventures.” Luisa Morales-Molina

“All men who have achieved great things have been great dreamers.”  Orisen Swett Marden

“Why not go out on a limb? Isn’t that where the fruit is?  Frank Scully

“A hero can be anyone. Even a man doing something as simple and reassuring as putting a coat around a little boy’s shoulders to let him know that the world hadn’t ended.”  Batman (Bruce Wayne) The Dark Knight Rises

“What is better? To be born good, or to overcome your evil nature?  Paarthunax

“There isn’t a person anywhere who isn’t capable of doing more than he thinks he can.”  Henry Ford

“The real hero is always a hero by mistake; he dreams of being an honest coward like everybody else.” Umberto Eco

“If one dream should fall and break into a thousand pieces, never be afraid to pick one of those pieces up and begin again.” Flavia Weedn

“A man who is a master of patience is master of everything else.” George Savile

“It takes courage to grow up and turn out to be who you really are.” – e.e. cummings

“We must remember that one determined person can make a significant difference, and that a small group of determined people can change the course of destiny.” –Sonia Johnson

“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.” –Mae West
