My obsession with quotes continues. This time around, the “Quotes, Quotes and more Quotes” phase that I’ve got into seems to be an extended one. Status Quo(tes) about sums it up. ;-)
"Don't be afraid to be unique or speak your mind, because that's what makes you different from everyone else." - Dave Thomas
Have you been cheating yourself by not doing or saying what you believe in? Have you wanted to be different but somehow not dared to be? Being different, apart from making you feel happy, increases your confidence and sense of self-worth. There are phases wherein the world eyes you askance because of your unconventional behaviour, but as long as you’re not doing anything against your own conscience and values, nothing really matters. Life gives.
Letting the obsession with quotes continue, I’ll end this post with another (popular) quote. “"Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do, than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade wind in your sails. Explore, dream, discover.” - Mark Twain
This, I think, is the case for both the external as well as the internal world. Go on, discover yourself and, then, be yourself! :)
