Quotes: Hero Tropes

I'm gonna win, trust in me
I've come to save this world
And in the end I'll get the girl!
Machinae Supremacy, "Hero"

I want a hero, an uncommon want,
When every year and month sends forth a new one,
'Til, after cloying the gazettes with cant,
The age discovers he is not the true one.
Of such as these I should not care to vaunt.
I'll therefore take our ancient friend Don Juan.
You all have seen him in the pantomime,
Sent to the Devil somewhat ere his time.
Lord Byron, "Don Juan"
