The person who follows the crowd,

will usually get no further than the crowd.

The person who walks alone

is likely to find oneself in places

no one has ever been before.

Creativity in living is not without its attendant difficulties,

for peculiarity often breeds contempt.

And the unfortunate thing about being

ahead of your time is that

when people finally realize you were right,

they’ll say it was obvious all along.

You have two choices in life:

You can dissolve into the mainstream,

or you can be distinct.

To be distinct, you must always strive

to be what no one else but you can be.

Which one are you? How are you distinct?
