“Read, every day, something no one else is reading. Think, every day, something no one else is thinking. Do, every day, something no one else would be silly enough to do. It is bad for the mind to continually be part of unanimity.” - Christopher Morley
One of my favourite quotes.
When I was 15 I typed this out on my typewritter and blu-tacked it to my mirror.
4 years and 2 house moves later I still have it. It’s blu-tacked to my bookcase at this very moment. Sometimes I feel as though I need to be reminded of this. There is so much of the same. And what pisses me off is the fact that people now make fun of those who crave induviduality of some kind.
An ‘alternate’ way of looking at things is now either a joke or what people assume to be narcissist pretentiousness.
Well I say fuck that. I’m still going to search for the different, crave the unique and praise the unusual. There’s such a beauty in it.
