"To be a hero--and I'm not saying I am one, I'm just saying--is to live your life in a small cell whose bars are the principles and rules that define what you will and won't accept. Injustice. Cruelty. Murder.

On the night they threw Henry Thoreau in jail for civil disobedience, a friend came to see him saying, "Henry, what're you doing in here?" Thoreau said, "No, the question is; what are you doing out there?"

If I am lucky enough, privileged enough to live in that cell, to serve in that box with the word 'hero' written on it, then I say to you, from somewhere deep inside that box, what are you doing out there?" -Superman
