The Hero’s Journey
A legendary hero is usually the founder of something—the founder of a new age, the founder
of a new religion, the founder of a new city, the founder of a new way of life. In order to found something
new, one has to leave the old and go on a quest of the seed idea, a germinal idea
that will have the potential of bringing forth that new thing.
— Joseph Campbell, Hero with a Thousand Faces
