A Hero's Voice of Reason is something that motivates the hero or heroine. Usually in stories the Hero's Voice of Reason is a supporting character or someone that the hero or heroine is close to that comes to the him or her for encouragement. Most of the time it happens when the hero or heroine is down on his or her luck. Additionally it comes to times where the hero or someone their close to is in despair and already losing hope within them or those who are struggling with the strength to keep moving forward. The people will offer words of encouragement and assurance that is most likely to soothe the unease within that person. It is a version of Negativity turned Positivity but prior to the heroine or hero becoming more optimistic or regaing their optimism.

You've forgotten who you are, so you have forgotten me. Look inside yourself Simba. You are more than what you have become. You must take your place in the Circle of Life. (Simba doubting himself: How can I go back? I'm not who I use to be.) Remember who you are. You are my son and the one true king. Remember who you are.||„|

Because maybe if we screw this planet up enough- (he suddenly collapses, drunk) ...they won't want it anymore. (Julius (rushes forward to help) David! Don't do this to yourself. Listen to me, listen to me.) I'm listening. (Julius: Everyone loses faith at some point in their lives (takes a bottle from David's hands) Even myself. I haven't spoken to God since your mother died. You see, sometimes, we have to remember what we still have.) Like what? (Julius: Well...you still have your health. Come on, David, you need your rest. Come on, get off this freezing concrete floor before you catch cold. Come on.) What did you just say? (Julius: What, about faith? Well, you see, a man can live his entire life-) No, the other part.

|“||Good morning. In less than an hour, aircraft from here will join others from around the world, and you will be launching the largest aerial battle in the history of mankind. Mankind. That word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps it's fate that today is the Fourth of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom. Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution… but from annihilation. We're fighting for our right to live. To exist. And should we win the day, the Fourth of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day when the world declared in one voice: We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on! We're going to survive! Today we celebrate our Independence Day!||„|
|~ President Thomas Whitmore giving a powerful speech to his new comrades.|
|“||Good evening, London. Allow me first to apologize for this interruption. I do, like many of you, appreciate the comfort of everyday routine, the security of the familiar, the tranquility of repetition. I enjoy them as much as any bloke. But in the spirit of commemoration, whereupon important events of the past, usually associated with someone's death or the end of some awful bloody struggle, are celebrated with a nice holiday, I thought we could mark this November the 5th, a day that is sadly no longer remembered, by taking some time out of our daily lives to sit down and have a little chat. There are, of course, those who do not want us to speak. I suspect even now, orders are being shouted into telephones, and men with guns will soon be on their way. Why? Because while the truncheon may be used in lieu of conversation, words will always retain their power. Words offer the means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn't there? Cruelty and injustice, intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission. How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well, certainly, there are those who are more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable. But again, truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror. I know why you did it. I know you were afraid. Who wouldn't be? War, terror, disease. They were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense. Fear got the best of you, and in your panic you turned to the now high chancellor, Adam Sutler. He promised you order, he promised you peace, and all he demanded in return was your silent, obedient consent. Last night, I sought to end that silence. Last night, I destroyed the Old Bailey to remind this country of what it has forgotten. More than four hundred years ago, a great citizen wished to embed the fifth of November forever in our memory. His hope was to remind the world that fairness, justice, and freedom are more than words, they are perspectives. So if you've seen nothing, if the crimes of this government remain unknown to you, then I would suggest that you allow the fifth of November to pass unmarked. But if you see what I see, if you feel as I feel, and if you would seek as I seek, then I ask you to stand beside me, one year from tonight, outside the gates of Parliament, and together we shall give them a fifth of November that shall never, ever be forgot."||„|

|“||We are not losing one more of these civilians, understand? (Lockett: You getting us out, too, staff sergeant? Or are we expendable?) (Nantz marches up to Lockett.) All right, Lockett. You want to go there, let's go there. I commanded men, and men died. Kids, 19 years old, the best Marines I ever led. Do you think for one second that I wouldn't rather trade places with them? I know you think I got my men killed. They're dead. I'm here. Like the punch line to some bad joke. You think I like that? You think that a minute goes by that those faces aren't right here, seared into my brain? Dante, Thomas T. Corporal. 1-5-6-5-0-9-3-8-6. Ambruster, William R. Private. 8-7-6-6-6-2-3-5-4. Wharton, Jeffery H. Lance Corporal. 8-7-4-2-7-3-9-9-3. Lockett...Duane G. Corporal. 1-5-6-8-7-0-9... (Lockett: 5-5.) Your brother was an outstanding Marine. He was my friend. And I miss him every day. And you remind me of him. But none of that matters right now. Because our duty is to keep moving forward, to keep fighting. That's how we honour your brother, and Lieutenant Martinez, Corporal Stavrou, Lance Corporal Motolla...Hector's father, who picked up a rifle and did what needed to be done. A civilian did that. So we'd better dang well step it up. Discard any lingering doubt. Work fast, work as a unit and we will prevail. Let's figure out how we're going to get out of this mess. Imlay, you come with me. We need to get to higher ground. The rest of you, find some ammo and some vehicles. There's got to be a few LAVs or armoured Humvees still operational.||„|

My daughter was diagnosed with acute leukemia at the age of five, and I spent my time at work, instead of at home, looking after her, because I was afraid of watching her die! I'm not a good father. I'm not a good man. But I'm not hijacking this plane. I'm trying to save it. And I WILL save it if you work with me.||„|

All the men we lost, General Hawk wounded, my neck just doesn't seem that important.) Hey. You almost lost your life out there. You have a reason to be concerned. (Scarlett: First fight I lost since I was a kid. My father taught me to win.) Look, I don't see how you could teach anybody to win everything every time. I mean, look at you. You're still here, right? You get knocked down, you get back up. Maybe that's what he wanted you to learn. But then again, there'd be an emotional response.

(Buzz Lightyear (still depressed): I can't help. I can't help anyone.) Why, sure you can, Buzz. You can get me out of here and then I'll get that rocket off you, and we'll make a break for Andy's house. (Buzz Lightyear: Andy's house. Sid's house. What's the difference?) Oh, Buzz, you've had a big fall. You must not be thinking clearly. (Buzz Lightyear: No, Woody, for the first time I am thinking clearly. You were right all along. I'm not a Space Ranger. I'm just a toy. A stupid, little, insignificant toy.) Whoa, hey wait a minute. Being a toy is a lot better than being a Space Ranger. (Buzz Lightyear: Yeah, right.) No, it is. Look, over in that house is a kid who thinks you are the greatest, and it's not because you're a Space Ranger, pal, it's because you're a toy! You are his toy. (Buzz Lightyear: But why would Andy want me?) Why would Andy want you? Look at you, you're a Buzz Lightyear. Any other toy would give up his moving parts just to be you. You've got wings, you glow in the dark, you talk, your helmet does that... that whoosh thing. You are a cool toy. (Woody pauses and becomes depressed too) As a matter of fact, you're too cool. I mean... I mean what chance does a toy like me have against a Buzz Lightyear action figure? All I can do is... (Woody pulls his pull-string) (Voice Box: There's a snake in my boot.) Why would Andy ever want to play with me, when he's got you? I'm the one that should be strapped to that rocket. (Woody becomes dejected against the crate and Buzz sees the signature "ANDY" on the bottom of his foot and discovers that maybe being a toy is a lot better than being a space ranger and looks back at Woody while Woody is still dejected) Listen Buzz, forget about me. You should get out of here while you can. (Woody turns around, but Buzz is gone and Woody discovers that the milkcrate is shaking and discovers that Buzz has finally took Woody's advice about being the importance of Andy's toy as he is on the milkcrate, trying to push the tool box off, so he and Woody can escape) Buzz!! What are you doing? I thought you were- (Buzz Lightyear: Come on, Sheriff. There's a kid over in that house who needs us. Now let's get you out of this thing.) Yes Sir! (Woody puts his hat back on as he and Buzz push the milkcrate and the toolbox together) Come on, Buzz! We can do it!||„|

Didn't you ever wish you could be something else? (Steve: Well its Easy for you to say. You're not some evil enchanted tree...)(Charming: You morons! Don't listen to him! Attack them!!) (Ed grabs Charming, covering his mouth as he talks: Steve's trying to say here is it's hard to come by honest work when the whole world's against you.) (Steve: Right. Thanks, Ed.) Okay. Fair enough. You're right. I'm not a talking tree. But you know, a good friend of mine once told me: that just because people treat you like a villain, or an ogre, or just some loser... It doesn't mean you are one. (Shrek was amazed of what Artie is saying) The thing that matters most, is what you think of yourself. If there's something you really want, or someone you really want to be, then the only person standing in your way is you. (Short villain:Me?) (Thug:Get him, lads!) (Villains: Yeah!!!) No, no, no! What I mean is each of you is standing in your own way. (Villains: Oh...) (Headless Horseman: *Sniffles* I've always wanted to play the flute.) (Wicked Stepmother: I'd like to open up a spa in France!)(Capt. Hook: I grow daffodils. And they're beautiful.)||„|
