When do you become a man? When you become your own man. When other men trust you to do a man’s work. Trust you with their name, their reputation, their thoughts. Trust you to watch their backs and trust you with their lives.
You become a man when, in having children, you not only physically look after and protect them but also protect them with all the love and learning you have to give.
If monkey became a man, then a man can become a hero.
