I have a question on tragedy in Death of a Salesman - Arthur Miller. The question is

"True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others, at whatever cost." Arthur Ashe.
How far would you regard this to be true of 'Death of a Salesman'.

The problem is I don't really understand the quote so I can't answer it? Any help would be appreciated

I've never read Death of a Salesman, but from my point of view, I think the quote is basically saying "Heroes are people who want to help other people, they are not trying to make themselves better than other people and don't have selfish motives behind heroic actions. Heroes are selfless"
