Heroism

hero3

“Everyone is capable of his own peculiar heroism.  He may not recognize it under that imposing title, for he is merely doing what his instincts tell him he must do to set his life straight; yet it is, in fact, so great a heroism that his neighbor, living out his own unrecognizable heroism, is awestricken at the other man’s courage: and that is what holds the world together.”

Excerpt from Clarence Darrow For The Defenese by Irving Stone
