Individuality quotes
Individuality
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
America is not anything if it consists of each of us. It is something only if it consists of all of us.

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

- Rickenbacker, Edward Vernon
The greatest enemy of individual freedom is the individual himself.

- Alinsky, Saul
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
Losing faith in your own singularity is the start of wisdom, I suppose; also the first announcement of death.

- Conrad, Peter
Follow the crowd and you will never be followed by a crowd.

It is the individual only who is timeless. Societies, cultures, and civilizations --past and present --are often incomprehensible to outsiders, but the individual's hungers, anxieties, dreams, and preoccupations have remained unchanged through the millennia.

- Hoffer, Eric
Each man must grant himself the emotions that he needs and the morality that suits him.

- Gourmont, Remy De
Your labor only may be sold, your soul must not.

- Ruskin, John
Our expenses are all for conformity.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Follow your own star!

- Dante Alighieri
No one can transcend their own individuality.

- Schopenhauer, Arthur
But society has now fairly got the better of individuality; and the danger which threatens human nature is not the excess, but the deficiency, of personal Impulses and preferences.

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

- Francis De Sales, St.
Pin your faith to no ones sleeves, haven't you two eyes of your own.

- Carlyle, Thomas
