Show Me a Hero

2 min read

Show me a hero and I’ll write you a tragedy.”~Fitzgerald. I rarely posts quotes from authors but if I do it will be from my favorite, the great F Scott Fitzgerald. Fitz’s artistic sensibilities is something I admire, and his ability to capture the delicious pain of living, loving, loss and the plunging feeling of youth dying in the most mature heart of everyman within his novels deeply resonates with me every time I read them. There is something to be said for heroes and tragedies, in fact there is a lot to be said for heroes and tragedies and not a novel in the world can capture the life of one in words, but Fitz comes as close as anyone can with This Side of Paradise or Gatsby. Let us aspire to outlive the limits of life that presses upon us everyday and die to our weaknesses so that we can be reborn new men, for our shallow old selves are not enough to deliver us out of our hopelessness and sorrows, nor rescue the world from its own pains. We need to step it up more than just a little because this world needs heroes and that requires us to die to our bourgeois compromises. We need to practice striding a lot longer to get used to filling some pretty big shoes. Be the best person that you can possibly be 📸 @firemissionblog
