I love this quote…

Thanks to Jason Lauritsen and Values.com for bringing it to my inbox.

“To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, day and night, to make you everybody but yourself—means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight—and never stop fighting.”

e. e. cummings (1894-1962);

poet, playwright, painter, essayist

Be good to each other.

    YES! (actually I shouted “yes” when I read this and thought you might have heard it in Omaha. I did startle the cat.)

  2. Patti

    Having always enjoyed E.E. Cummings, I can say I have never seen this quote before – exceptional and thank you for sharing it.

  3. David Rendall

    Fantastic quote! I want to share this with everyone.

    My Freak Factor book starts with another e. e. cummings quote. “We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch.”

    It’s cool to find someone else that’s encouraging people to fly their freak flag.
