Individuality quotes

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

Be yourself, who else is better qualified?

- Giblin, Frank J.

Be content to be what you are, and prefer nothing to it, and do not fear or wish for your last day.

- Martial, Marcus Valerius

Never follow the crowd.

- Baruch, Bernard M.

Do not wish to be anything but what you are, and try to be that perfectly.

- Francis De Sales, St.

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.

My great mistake, the fault for which I can't forgive myself, is that one day I ceased my obstinate pursuit of my own individuality.

- Oscar Wilde

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 and rides it, in grace and love and wit, from peculiar station to peculiar station along life's bittersweet route.

- Tom Robbins

Every man must get to Heaven his own way.

- Frederick The Great, (Frederick II)

No one can transcend their own individuality.

- Schopenhauer, Arthur

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 way we distinguish ourselves is by showing our individuality.

- Elisa Camahort

I live in company with a body, a silent companion, exacting and eternal. He it is who notes that individuality which is the seal of the weakness of our race. My soul has wings, but the brutal jailer is strict.

- Delacroix, Eugene

In bourgeois society capital is independent and has individuality, while the living person is dependent and has no individuality.

- Marx, Karl

How we remember, what we remember and why we remember form the most personal map of our individuality.

- Christina Baldwin

Individuality is either the mark of genius or the reverse. Mediocrity finds safety in standardization.

- Crane, Frederick E.

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

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

Comrades! We must abolish the cult of the individual decisively, once and for all.

- Khrushchev, Nikita

Your labor only may be sold, your soul must not.

- Ruskin, John
