Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Hero
 
No man is a hero to his valet.
        French Saying.
  1
  [But it may be traced to an earlier period. Ramage’s Thoughts from the French.]  2
        His mien, his speech,
Were sweetly simple———
But, when the matter match’d his mighty mind,
Up rose the hero; on his piercing eye
Sat observation; on each glance of thought
Decision followed.
        Home.—Douglas, Act III. Scene 1.
