{Jack Shephard/Matthew Fox} #157: He's in the movies

Welcome to
the 157th Appreciation Thread
for Matthew Fox & Dr. Jack Shephard!

"The beauty of the soul shines out when a man bears,
with composure, one heavy mischance after another; not because
he does not feel them, but because he is a man of high
and heroic temper." ~Aristotle

Emperor - General Bonner Fellers

Matthew Chandler Fox

Emperor - General Bonner Fellers

Down these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean,
who is neither tarnished nor afraid... He is the hero, he is everything.
He must be a complete man and a common man and yet an unusual man.
He must be, to use a rather weathered phrase, a man of honor, by instinct,
by inevitability, without thought of it, and certainly without saying it.
He must be the best man in his world and a good enough man for any world.

Emperor - General Bonner Fellers

True Heroes are not stronger, smarter or more capable than anyone;
They're just people, who don't have fear in help, in making a move,
when nobody else does.

Greatness comes not when things go good,
greatness comes when you are really tested,
when disappointments and sadness come.
Because only if you have been in the deepest valleys
can you ever know how magnificent it is to be on the highest mountain.

There are two types of heroic deeds. One is the physical, in which the hero performs a
courageous act and saves lives. The other kind is the spiritual deed, in which
the hero learns to experience the supernormal range of human life and then comes back with a message.
A hero follows his own passion into realms previously unknown, discover a new truth,
and bring that gift back for his people. Heroes understand something is missing from their consciousness,
struggle until they find what it is, claim it, and share it.

When the will defies fear, when duty throws the gauntlet down to fate
when honor scorns to compromise with death - that is heroism.

"Whatever we learn to do, we learn by actually doing it.
Men come to be builders, by building, and harp players by playing the harp.
In the same way, by doing just acts, we come to be just.
By doing self-controlled acts, we come to be self-controlled,
and by doing brave acts, we become brave." ~Aristotle

That's what it takes to be a hero, a little gem of innocence inside you
that makes you want to believe that there still exists a right and wrong
that good will somehow triumph in the end.

A hero commits a courageous action without considering the consequences.
He acts for the greater good. He is an ordinary individual who finds strength
to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.
A hero will take charge, he'll act instead of react.
A hero is defined by action, not by potential.

The high sentiments always win in the end,
the leaders who offer blood, toil, tears, and sweat always get more out
of their followers than those who offer safety and a good time.
