I am doing mine today on Conformity... I don't believe in conforming to anyone's idea of what I should be... I live by my own rules...

"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind." ~Dr. Seuss

"You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life." ~Winston Churchill

"The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself." ~Friedrich Nietzsche

"One who walks in another's tracks leaves no footprints." ~Proverb

"How glorious it is - and also how painful - to be an exception." ~Alfred de Musset
