„A hero looks death in the face, real death, not just the image of death.“

—  Ludwig Wittgenstein Austrian-British philosopher 1889 - 1951
Context: A hero looks death in the face, real death, not just the image of death. Behaving honourably in a crisis doesn't mean being able to act the part of a hero well, as in the theatre, it means being able to look death itself in the eye. For an actor may play lots of different roles, but at the end of it all he himself, the human being, is the one who has to die. p. 50e
