The following two quotes are from a man named Christopher Morley (1890 - 1957), a U.S. author and journalist. Both struck me as powerful and worth reflection. "There is only one success - to be able to spend your life in your own way." -C. Morley
"Read, every day, something no one else is reading. Think, every day, something no one else is thinking. Do, every day, something no one else would be silly enough to do. It is bad for the mind to be always part of unanimity." -C. Morley
And just to balance things out with a chuckle on the topic of individuality:
Are you spending your life in your own way, or living according to someone else's?
