“Fear is something I don’t think you experience unless you have a choice. If you have a choice, then you’re liable to be afraid. But without a choice, what is there to be afraid of? You just go along doing what has to be done.”
Mitchell Zuckoff, Lost in Shangri-la: A True Story of Survival, Adventure, and the Most Incredible Rescue Mission of World War II

“A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.”
Mitchell Zuckoff, 13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened In Benghazi

“People in America get up and go to their nine-to-five jobs every day and are oblivious to all these battles and wars and people dying every minute all over the world. This is life. This is how other countries live. This is a daily occurrence in some places.”
Mitchell Zuckoff, 13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened In Benghazi
