Heroes are much the same, the point's agreed,
From Macedonia's madman to the Swede.
POPE: _Essay on Man,_ Epis. iv., Line 219.
Whoe'er excels in what we prize,
Appears a hero in our eyes.
SWIFT: _Cadenus and Vanessa,_ Line 729.
To the hero, when his sword
Has won the battle for the free
Death's voice sounds like a prophet's word;
And in its hollow tones are heard
The thanks of millions yet to be!
HALLECK: _Marco Bozzaris._
Heroes as great have died, and yet shall fall.
POPE: _Iliad,_ Bk. xv., Line 157.
