Individuality quotes
Individuality
It is those who concentrate on but one thing at a time who advance in this world. The great man or woman is the one who never steps outside his or her specialty or foolishly dissipates his or her individuality.

- Og Mandino
The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: initiative, imagination, individuality, and independence.

- Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon
It is a blessed thing that in every age some one has had the individuality enough and courage enough to stand by his own convictions.

- Ingersoll, Robert Green
Writers write to influence their readers, their preachers, their auditors, but always, at bottom, to be more themselves.

- Huxley, Aldous
Each man must have his I; it is more necessary to him than bread; and if he does not find scope for it within the existing institutions he will be likely to make trouble.

- Cooley, Charles Horton
Every man must get to Heaven his own way.

- Frederick The Great, (Frederick II)
A happy life is one which is in accordance with its own nature.

- Seneca
Individuality is the aim of political liberty. By leaving to the citizen as much freedom of action and of being, as comports with order and the rights of others, the institutions render him truly a freeman. He is left to pursue his means of happiness in his own manner.

- Cooper, James F.
A gesture cannot be regarded as the expression of an individual, as his creation (because no individual is capable of creating a fully original gesture, belonging to nobody else), nor can it even be regarded as that person's instrument; on the contrary, it is gestures that use us as their instruments, as their bearers and incarnations.

- Kundera, Milan
Learn to limit yourself, to content yourself with some definite thing, and some definite work; dare to be what you are, and learn to resign with a good grace all that you are not and to believe in your own individuality.

- Henri-FrÚdÚric Amiel
The best things and best people rise out of their separateness; I'm against a homogenized society because I want the cream to rise.

- Frost, Robert
What is wanted -- whether this is admitted or not -- is nothing less than a fundamental remolding, indeed weakening and abolition of the individual: one never tires of enumerating and indicating all that is evil and inimical, prodigal, costly, extravagant in the form individual existence has assumed hitherto, one hopes to manage more cheaply, more safely, more equitably, more uniformly if there exist only large bodies and their members.

- Nietzsche, Friedrich
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? And if not now, when?

- Hillel, Rabbi
The work of the individual still remains the spark that moves mankind forward.

- Sikorsky, Igor
Our expenses are all for conformity.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
It is said that if Noah's ark had to be built by a company; they would not have laid the keel yet; and it may be so. What is many men's business is nobody's business. The greatest things are accomplished by individual men.

- Spurgeon, Charles Haddon
A self that is only differentiated - not integrated - may attain great individual accomplishments, but risks being mired in self-centered egotism. By the same token, a person who self is based exclusively on integration will be well connected and secure, but lack autonomous individuality. Only when a person invests equal amounts of psychic energy in these two processes and avoids both selfishness and conformity is the self likely to relect complexity.

- Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
More and more, when faced with the world of men, the only reaction is one of individualism. Man alone is an end unto himself. Everything one tries to do for the common good ends in failure.

- Camus, Albert
Except in a few well-publicized instances (enough to lend credence to the iconography painted on the walls of the media), the rigorous practice of rugged individualism usually leads to poverty, ostracism and disgrace. The rugged individualist is too often mistaken for the misfit, the maverick, the spoilsport, the sore thumb.

- Lapham, Lewis H.
No one should part with their individuality and become that of another.

- Channing, William Ellery
