Heros Are Made of Courage

What does the Lion in The Wizard of Oz say?

“Then, if you don’t mind, I’ll go with you,” said the Lion, “for my life is simply unbearable without a bit of courage.” “You will be very welcome,” answered Dorothy, “for you will help to keep away the other wild beasts. It seems to me they must be more cowardly than you are if they allow you to scare them so easily.”

The wizard goes on to say to the lion, “Back where I come from we have men who are called heroes. Once a year they take their fortitude out of mothballs and they parade it down the main street and they have no more courage than you have.”

The Cowardly Lion: [crying] You’re right, I am a coward!I haven’t any courage at all.
