So, is it so bad to be misunderstood? Pythagoras was misunderstood, and Socrates and Jesus and Luther and Copernicus and Galileo and Newton and every true and wise spirit that ever incarnated. Being great is to be misunderstood.
In a world that is constantly trying to change you, the greatest achievement is being who you are.
Be who you are, not the ordinary imitator of the other, but your best. There is something you do better than the others. Listen to your inner voice and obey him boldly. Do the things that you are great at, not what was never created for you.
Nothing is as sacred as the integrity of your own mind.
Do not go where the path takes you, go where there is no path and leave a mark!
