That’s what makes heroes so special.  You carry the hopes of humanity into the realm of the eternal.  Monsters never die.  They are reborn from the chaos and barbarism that is always bubbling underneath civilization. . . . They must be defeated again and again, kept at bay.  Heroes embody that struggle.  You fight the battles that humanity must win, every generation, in order to stay human. (from Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan)
