don't try to be original, just try to be good. -- paul rand.
when we are honest - that's my saying - if we are honest then we will reveal ourselves. but we do not have to make an effort to be individualistic, different from others. -- paul cezanne.
our individuality is all, all that we have. there are those who barter it for security, those who repress it for what they believe is the betterment of the whole society, but blessed in the twinkle of the morning star is the one who nurtures it and rides it in, in grace and love and wit, from peculiar station to peculiar station along life's bittersweet route. --tom robbins.
always be a first rate version of yourself and not a second rate version of someone else. --judy garland.

individualisticdoesn't take effort.
trying to be different defeats the purpose.
trying to be different makes you somebody else.
i don't have to try to be special.
i just am.
