“To be nobody but
in a world which is doing its best
day and night
to make you like everybody else
means to fight the hardest battle
which any human being can fight
and never stop fighting.”
~ e. e. cummings
This is a battle you need to fight until you win. Fight against mediocrity. Fight against complacency. Fight average. Fight status quo. It isn’t always the easy way to go. It isn’t the smooth and painless way to go. But if you want an authentic life, it’s the only way to go. There are enough copies. There are enough “yes” men. There are enough phonies.
There’s only one you.
