Unlikely Heroes

I am doing a bunch of writing these days, and one project I am working on is a Student Guide/Journal for the PlanetWisdom Events. It will help students respond and reflect through out their weekend experience. The theme for the event is Unlikely Heroes, inspiring students to take an active role in changing the world.

I have found a bunch of interesting (and some funny) quotes I am considering putting in the journal:

“Explore your mind, discover yourself, then give the best that is in you to your age and to your world. There are heroic possibilities waiting to be discovered in every person.” –Wilferd A. Peterson

“Here I come to save the day!” – MIghty Mouse

“Endure, Master Wayne. Take it. They’ll hate you for it. But that’s the point of Batman, he can be the outcast. He can make the choice that no one else can make, the right choice.”
– Alfred,  Batman: The Dark Knight

“Whatever life holds in store for me, I will never forget these words: “With great power comes great responsibility. This is my gift, my curse.” – Peter Parker, Spiderman 2

“I’m sure millions of viewers are wondering what it is like to wear the tights of justice. Well, it’s tingly and it’s uncomfortable.”
– The Tick

“Heroism is not just pulling a child from a burning house or a driver from an icy river or a kitten from a tall tree. Heroism is also holding the door for a frail elderly and driving courteously and cooperatively and listening with an attentive heart to a friend’s words. Small daily acts of love are as heroic as big once-in-a-lifetime acts of rescue.” – L. M. Heroux

Any good hero quotes I am leaving out?
