Comment by ValterV on Be Yourself: Everybody Else is Taken by Robert Levithan
Living is not for the sake of others’ approval, it’s for enjoying it the utmost.
If you lose others, you’ll find someone else. If you lose yourself, you lose everything.
Only those who dare to fail greatly, can ever achieve greatly. Few men are willing to brave the disapproval of their fellows, the censure of their colleagues, the wrath of their society. Moral courage is a rarer commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence. Yet it is the one essential, vital quality for those who seek to change the world which yields most painfully to change.
(Robert F. Kennedy)
