“ If someone isn't what others want them to be, the others become angry. Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own. ”

Only when you do not know yourself, the opinion of other people becomes important.
If you want to have deep insights into life, no one's opinion about you should mean anything to you
Your opinions are a wall, not only for others but also for yourself. A closed mind means closed possibilities
The snow goose need not bathe to make itself white. Neither need you do anything but be yourself.
The best index to a person's character is how he treats people who can't do him any good, and how he treats people who can't fight back.
Every man has a right to his own opinion. Every race has a right to its own action; therefore let no man persuade you against your will, let no other race influence you against your own.
