A nation can be judged by its heroes

Standard

According to Walter Berns

We say that a man can be known by the company he keeps. So I say that a nation, a people, can be known and be judged by its heroes, by whom it honors above all others.

We pay ourselves the greatest compliment when we say that Abraham Lincoln is that man for us.

According to Adam Khan

Lincoln was one of the few great men who really was great.
