EVERY ONE has his heroes. Each age and every nation has them. They are those men whom we admire so much that if our dreams came true, we should be like them.
Now choosing a hero is a serious matter. One may almost say, "Like hero, like worshiper." Therefore we must choose carefully. We must decide beforehand what our hero will be like. Shall he be gentle or ruthless, generous or selfish? Shall he be a master at spreading fear or happiness? Napoleon was so great a fighter that thousands of families never forgot him in their curses. Shall he be one of our heroes?
If not, who shall be? Who are the men we ought to follow? One thing is certain: our heroes must be fighters. But on what battlefield and for what cause?
