How to use hero in a sentence?

  1. Frank Reich:

    We did have an hour-plus conversation about his role, about our team and about the situation he is stepping into, he handled it just how I thought. I mean this guy is a pro. So it was more very conversational. It wasnt a Rah-rah thing. It was more centered around, Be yourself. You dont have to be a hero.

  2. Penn Jillette:

    Technology adds nothing to art. Two thousand years ago, I could tell you a story, and at any point during the story I could stop, and ask, Now do you want the hero to be kidnapped, or not But that would, of course, have ruined the story. Part of the experience of being entertained is sitting back and plugging into someone else's vision.

  3. Fred Santos:

    He plays a hero in the movies, yet in real life he's not a hero, he's a dirty politician.

  4. Bob Dylan:

    I think of a hero as someone who understands the degree of responsibility that comes with his freedom.

  5. Johnny Galecki:

    I met this fellow a month or two ago and he’s a hero of mine and I knew that he was a hero of Chuck [Lorre] and Bill [Prady’s], so I just accosted him and cornered him and practically made him commit on the spot to play my father, i’m really excited about it. It’s going to be a lot of fun.
