Heroism

“Everyone is capable of his own peculiar heroism.  He may not recognize it under that imposing title, for he is merely doing what his instincts tell him he must do to set his life straight; yet it is, in fact, so great a heroism that his neighbor, living out his own unrecognizable heroism, is awestricken at the other man’s courage: and that is what holds the world together.” 10 more words

The Artist and his Home: Michelangelo of Florence – Florence of Michelangelo

My few days in Florence were a short dream, still the city opened itself to me much later, much slower, when I was reading Irving Stone’s novel ‘Agony and Ecstasy’ about its greatest son: the child who lost his mother, nourished by the kindness and beauty of his home town: Michelangelo. 2,382 more words
