people will forget what you did,

how you made them feel.

I honor you, Hero, for you do not play to the crowd.
You play to your own soul.
An audience of one fills the house with its appreciation and applause.
Others follow you, and may attempt to emulate you,
but that is not why you are a hero.
Fame may smile upon you, or it may not.
The world may cheer your name, or you may be the unknown warrior
who rescued comrades in battle,
or taught a young girl how to shed tears of joy.
Whatever you did, you did not do for fame.
If you had, you would not be a Hero.
You are a Hero for your bold courageous inspired action.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

given the knowledge, emotions, and prior experience
they had to draw upon at the time.

because if they did, they wouldn't be true believers anymore.

Guilt says I've done something wrong;

Guilt says I've made a mistake;

Guilt says what did was not good;
... shame says I am no good.
- John Bradshaw

tired of doing the hard work you already did.

and refused to allow me to share it,
I should feel it most bitterly.

so that I might share in what I was entitled to share.
If he thought me unworthy, unfit to weep with him,
I should feel it as the most poignant humiliation.
- Oscar Wilde
