"None of us will ever accomplish anything excellent or commanding except when he listens to this whisper which is heard by him alone." Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Accept no one's definition of your life, but define yourself." Harvey Fierstein

"What you think of me is none of my business." AA saying

"We are born originals. So why do so many of us die copies?" Edward Young

"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I, I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference." Robert Frost
