Heroes to me are people who basically can ilucidate and throw light on what it truly is to be human and show us the best way of being human. If that is an ingredient for what interests me as a story teller? Absolutely.

No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.
We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.
