They asked Kraljevic Marko how did he became a hero, and he answered, that he learned to be a hero from dogs and from children: when a dog even if it is the biggest and the strongest runs away, then all the other dogs including the smallest and the weakest run after him; in the same way when a child runs away, children are running after him. And when some dog or a child, even if it is the smallest and the weakest, stands and starts defending himself, then few dare strike at him.
