To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.  ~e.e. cummings
He who trims himself to suit everyone will soon whittle himself away.  ~Raymond Hull
God has given you one face, and you make yourself another.  ~William Shakespeare
All my life I had been looking for something, and everywhere I turned someone tried to tell me what it was.  I accepted their answers too, though they were often in contradiction and even self-contradictory.  I was naïve.  I was looking for myself and asking everyone except myself questions which I, and only I, could answer.  It took me a long time and much painful boomeranging of my expectations to achieve a realization everyone else appears to have been born with:  that I am nobody but myself.  ~Ralph Ellison
The life of every man is a diary in which he means to write one story, and writes another.  ~James Matthew Barrie
Most people are other people.  Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.  ~Oscar Wilde
Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.  ~Judy Garland
We are so accustomed to disguise ourselves to others that in the end we become disguised to ourselves.  ~François Duc de La Rochefoucauld
A man who is "of sound mind" is one who keeps the inner madman under lock and key.  ~Paul Valéry
