Question: A Quote You Live By?


'Be Yourself, Everyone Else is Already Taken,' is a quote, i most definitely live by every single day. The quote is by Oscar Wilde, who is kind of my favourite classical philosopher quote person.

When i first heard the quote, I was in the stage where I thought I was not good enough and my personality will not mix with the group of people i wanted to mix with. I thought I had to change myself just to fit in. That was until, I saw this quote (following a tad bit of maturing.)

I suddenly started thinking that, 'what is the point of trying to change myself, if i am going to be unhappy?' The people who I was with/ wanted to be with will never truly like me for me. There is already a copy of that person I want to be, why do i want to be a clone? Therefore I stopped looking at myself as someone else and started looking at myself as me. I found and still am finding who i am and who i aspire to be. That sounds a tiny bit contradicting- 'the who i want to be' part. It is not me wanting to be a certain individual but me wanting to be a certain type of individual. For example, i want to be healthy, nice and someone fun to be around. 
This quote always reminds me that: there is only one you in the world. You are unique, unlike anyone else. So what, if people don't like you? Other people will. 
It reminds me that: you are important, the only person you should be is yourself.

What quotes do you live by?

  2. I love that quote, too! I also like: 'The Best thing to Hold Onto in Life is Each Other' - Audrey Hepburn as 1) I really like Audrey Hepburn and 2) because it's true. Without each other we're nothing!

    Different and unique people are the most interesting, anyway! :)
