He is always there for me no matter what. He is by far the funniest man I know. He is very dependable and he will do anything he can to help someone out.

Not only does he commit countless heroic acts in situations of high pressure where he could die, he also never loses faith. He continues to believe in Ithaca and dreams of his queen and never loses sight of his goal despite the years and many distractions. Odysseus takes risks, an example of this is in book IX, when he enters the Cyclopes cave not knowing what’s inside. He does many things throughout the epic that seem to lack judgement, but later show he always had it under control. Another quality that supports Odysseus being a hero is that he is blessed by a god, meaning they notice something great or godlike in him.
Old Dantes was a simple, naive human being that only wishes for the best of anyone and always shows love to anyone under any circumstance. Even in the time of someone starving his own father to collect a debt.

Odysseus’s discernment, scheme, and authority help himself and his men united as one and escaped from death.

Ulysses not having as much physical strength as wisdom did not prove much of an issue throughout the epic. He was a self-made and self-assured man who loved his family and his people.
The attributes a hero must have in order to be considered hero include being patient and complaisant, even with the most frustrating people, willing to help anyone, friend or foe, and being humble even though they are constantly praised and awarded for the heroic things they do. The late George Griffith, father and grandfather, best exemplified these qualities and is considered a hero to many. George Griffith is a hero because he was patient and complaisant, even the most frustrating and annoying people. George had four children and ten grandchildren and all throughout his life he has never yelled or has never been angry at them. John Griffith,
Wiglaf, as I just mentioned, is a good man. One of simple proud qualities. He is a man of his word and the only mighty warrior who deserved a Leader such as Beowulf. He knew what kinship meant and was not about to let his comrades forget their words of bravery when the time came for them to assist Beowulf in battle. In lines (711-713) you see what it meant to be a good man,” And only one of them/ Remained, stood there, miserable, remembering/ As a good man must, what Kinship should mean” To give you an overall thought of Wiglaf is to sum up his good human qualities.
I was selfish about my creativity.” Overall, perhaps one of George Carlin’s most endearing traits is the value he placed on individuality and free thought. Throughout his long and esteemed career, he made an impact by being unashamedly himself. He didn’t bend to anyone’s will, and believed it was his duty to challenge, criticize, and blaspheme that which was considered sacred. George Carlin, through his love of the individual and his contempt of the institution, solidified his place as one of the most distinct voices of all time, and will continue to impact those who hear his message and decide that they
