They both were seeking for something that was greater than themselves, something that would help them but both wanted something different. Beowulf looked for the best interest in his people and went to other nations to aid them in defeat of monsters or other terrors harming them. He was looking for fame and glory and did so by helping others and although this seems selfless in the end it was all to benefit himself.
