Individuality quotes by Mark Epstein
#1. Our basic suffering is rooted in a kind of original separation anxiety, which he called a "fear of life." We fear what has already irrevocably happened - separation from the greater whole - and yet we also come to fear the loss, in death, of this precious individuality. "Between these two fear possibilities," Rank wrote, "these poles of fear, the individual is thrown back and forth all his life, which accounts for the fact that we have not been able to trace fear back to a single root, or to overcome it therapeutically."8 #Quote by Mark Epstein
Individuality quotes by Gerald M. Weinberg
#2. Separation of function is not to be despised, but neither should it be exalted. Separation is not an unbreakable law, but a convenience for overcoming inadequate human abilities, whether in science or engineering. As D'Arcy Thompson, one of the spiritual fathers of the general systems movement, said: As we analyze a thing into its parts or into its properties, we tend to magnify these, to exaggerate their apparent independence, and to hide from ourselves (at least for a time) the essential integrity and individuality of the composite whole. We divided the body into its organs, the skeleton into its bones, as in very much the same fashion we make a subjective analysis of the mind, according to the teaching of psychology, into component factors: but we know very well that judgement and knowledge, courage or gentleness, love or fear, have no separate existence, but are somehow mere manifestations, or imaginary coefficients, of a most complex integral.10 The #Quote by Gerald M. Weinberg
Individuality quotes by Ken Robinson
#3. If you design a system to do something specific, don't be surprised if it does it. If you run an education system based on standardization and conformity that suppresses individuality, imagination, and creativity, don't be surprised it that's what it does. #Quote by Ken Robinson
Individuality quotes by Emma Donoghue
#4. Writing stories is my way of scratching that itch: my escape from the claustrophobia of individuality. It lets me, at least for a while, live more than one life, walk more than one path. Reading, of course, can do the same. #Quote by Emma Donoghue
Individuality quotes by Hlbalcomb
#5. A soul wound doesn't grow a new layer of normality overnight" Cinderella in Focus: Cindy'Secret #Quote by Hlbalcomb
Individuality quotes by Lajos Kossuth
#6. No man can force the harp of his own individuality into the people's heart; but every man may play upon the chords of the people's heart, who draws his inspiration from the people's instinct. #Quote by Lajos Kossuth
Individuality quotes by Dorothy L. Sayers
#7. Variety, individuality, peculiarity, eccentricity and indeed crankiness are agreeable to the British mind; they make life more interesting. #Quote by Dorothy L. Sayers
Individuality quotes by Twiggy
#8. Ageing doesn't mean giving up on style and individuality; it doesn't mean abandoning fashion and living in comfy slippers and flannel knickers. #Quote by Twiggy
Individuality quotes by William James
#9. The community stagnates without the impulse of the individual. The impulse dies away without the sympathy of the community. #Quote by William James
Individuality quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#10. Whoso would be a man must be a nonconformist. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Individuality quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#11. Our expenses are all for conformity. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Individuality quotes by Georgia O'Keeffe
#12. I know now that most people are so closely concerned with themselves that they are not aware of their own individuality, I can see myself, and it has helped me to say what I want to say in paint. #Quote by Georgia O'Keeffe
Individuality quotes by Gaston Bachelard
#13. In our life as a civilized person in the industrial age, we are invaded by objects; how could an object have a "force" when it no longer has individuality? #Quote by Gaston Bachelard
Individuality quotes by Harold Edward Gorst
#14. The average educated man possesses no real individuality. He is simply a manufactured article bearing the stamp of the maker. #Quote by Harold Edward Gorst
Individuality quotes by Donatella Versace
#15. I love the mix of people who hang out at nightclubs now. Their individuality is an inspiration to me. The music they listen to, the clothes they wear and the way they wear them defines a street style that I love. #Quote by Donatella Versace
Individuality quotes by Nicholas Murray Butler
#16. The fifth freedom, the Freedom of Individual Enterprise, is the keystone of the arch on which the other Four Freedoms rest. This is what freedom means. #Quote by Nicholas Murray Butler
Individuality quotes by Jeff Mach
#17. They hate being unable to control you. #Quote by Jeff Mach
Individuality quotes by Baruch Spinoza
#18. The more we understand individual things, the more we understand God. #Quote by Baruch Spinoza
Individuality quotes by Milan Kundera
#19. After Chopin's death, Polish patriots cut up his body to take out his heart. They nationalized this poor muscle and buried it in Poland.
A dead person is treated either as trash or as a symbol. Either way, it's the same disrespect to his vanished individuality. #Quote by Milan Kundera
Individuality quotes by John O'Donohue
#20. In everyone's life, there is great need for an anam cara, a soul friend. In this love, you are understood as you are without mask or pretension. The superficial and functional lies and half-truths of social acquaintance fall away, you can be as you really are. Love allows understanding to dawn, and understanding is precious. Where you are understood, you are at home. Understanding nourishes belonging. When you really feel understood, you feel free to release yourself into the trust and shelter of the other person's soul. This recognition is described in a beautiful line from Pablo Neruda: "You are like nobody since I love you." This art of love discloses the special and sacred identity of the other person. Love is the only light that can truly read the secret signature of the other person's individuality and soul. Love alone is literate in the world of origin; it an decipher identity and destiny. #Quote by John O'Donohue
Individuality quotes by Tyler J. Hebert
#21. Individuality is but another act of segregation. We need instead learn the process of Individuation. One is to know thyself merely to be a single brick within the wall of mass creation and group consciousness. #Quote by Tyler J. Hebert
Individuality quotes by Fennel Hudson
#22. It's better to be individual than a clone of someone else. #Quote by Fennel Hudson
Individuality quotes by Carson McCullers
#23. A person can't pick up they children and just squeeze them to which-a-way they wants them to be. #Quote by Carson McCullers
Individuality quotes by Harlan Ellison
#24. The only thing worth writing about is people. People. Human beings. Men and women whose individuality must be created, line by line, insight by insight. If you do not do it, the story is a failure. [ ... ] There is no nobler chore in the universe than holding up the mirror of reality and turning it slightly, so we have a new and different perception of the commonplace, the everyday, the 'normal', the obvious. People are reflected in the glass. The fantasy situation into which you thrust them is the mirror itself. And what we are shown should illuminate and alter our perception of the world around us. Failing that, you have failed totally. #Quote by Harlan Ellison
Individuality quotes by Mohammad Salman B. Sanayon
#25. If you know that by improving a certain skill, you will get you the job you want, work on it until you see the results. It is difficult to start, but when you see results, you'll never want to give up - you create your individuality. Be honest with yourself and continue to improve upon your uniqueness. #Quote by Mohammad Salman B. Sanayon
Individuality quotes by Orhan Pamuk
#26. As much as I live I shall not imitate them or hate myself for being different to them #Quote by Orhan Pamuk
Individuality quotes by Marcel Proust
#27. I was left alone there in the company of the orchids, roses and violets, which, like people waiting beside you who do not know you, preserved a silence which their individuality as living things made all the more striking, and warmed themselves in the heat of a glowing coal fire ... #Quote by Marcel Proust
Individuality quotes by Tom Barrett
#28. As we live our human lives, let us be like the water. Let us be conscious of the flow. Let us not forget the great ground of being that draws us on through life. Let us live in a knowing hope, aware that all being is in transition, that all movement is back to the source. Let us treat those around us as reminders of our illusionary individuality. We know that they are us and we are them connected in ways we cannot fathom. Let us grow in compassion for all beings, for they share our journey. #Quote by Tom Barrett
Individuality quotes by Dew Platt
#29. If everyone's hope were to be realizable with precedence, the law which enables individuality and reasonability will become senseless #Quote by Dew Platt
Individuality quotes by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
#30. What is genius but the power of expressing a new individuality? #Quote by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Individuality quotes by A. Whitney Brown
#31. There are a billion people in China. It's not easy to be an individual in a crowd of more than a billion people. Think of it. More than a billion people. That means even if you're a one-in-a-million type of guy, there are still a thousand guys exactly like you. #Quote by A. Whitney Brown
Individuality quotes by Douglas Preston
#32. You think of yourself as an "individual person", with a unique and separate mind. You think you are born and you think you die. All your life you feel separate and alone. Sometimes desperately so. You fear death because you fear the loss of individuality. All this is an illusion. You, he, she, those things around you living or not, the stars and galaxies, the empty space in between- these are not distinct, separate objects. All is fundamentally entangled. #Quote by Douglas Preston
Individuality quotes by Simone De Beauvoir
#33. However gifted an individual is at the outset, if his or her talents cannot be developed because of his or her social condition, because of the surrounding circumstances, these talents will be still-born. #Quote by Simone De Beauvoir
Individuality quotes by Karl Wiggins
#34. Anything that makes you distinct from others is precisely who you're here to be. Not someone who 'fits in' with everyone else #Quote by Karl Wiggins
Individuality quotes by Maurice Saatchi
#35. It's my view that human dignity - an attribute which for years has been taken by the Left in British politics - resides in fact in Tory values of independence, individuality and self determination. #Quote by Maurice Saatchi
Individuality quotes by Dan Pearce
#36. If there is one thing I have come to believe over the years, it's the notion that there really is somebody for everybody. Every single person is going to look at beauty from a different angle. Every single person is going to be attracted to certain features and characteristics that are completely different than the next person. And ... there isn't a person on earth that everybody on earth finds attractive. #Quote by Dan Pearce
Individuality quotes by Terry Eagleton
#37. We like to think of individuals as unique. Yet if this is true of everyone, then we all share the same quality, namely our uniqueness. What we have in common is the fact that we are all uncommon. Everybody is special, which means that nobody is. The truth, however, is that human beings are uncommon only up to a point. There are no qualities that are peculiar to one person alone. Regrettably, there could not be a world in which only one individual was irascible, vindictive or lethally aggressive. This is because human beings are not fundamentally all that different from each other, a truth postmodernists are reluctant to concede. We share an enormous amount in common simply by virtue of being human, and this is revealed by the vocabularies we have for discussing human character. We even share the social processes by which we come to individuate ourselves. #Quote by Terry Eagleton
Individuality quotes by Kevin Ansbro
#38. May the key of inspiration unlock your dungeon of creativity #Quote by Kevin Ansbro
Individuality quotes by Eileen Anglin
#39. The most fascinating people, those who made a mark on this Earth, who changed history and culture are always those who were a little different. #Quote by Eileen Anglin
Individuality quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#40. Nothing is so tiresome to one's self, as well as so odious to others, as disguise and affectation. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Individuality quotes by John Ridley
#41. It is time to celebrate the New Black Americans - those who have sealed the Deal, who aren't beholden to liberal indulgence any more than they are to the disdain of the hard Right. It is time to praise blacks who are merely undeniable in their individuality and exemplary in their levels of achievement. #Quote by John Ridley
Individuality quotes by Oscar Wilde
#42. My great mistake, the fault for which I can't forgive myself, is that one day I ceased my obstinate pursuit of my own individuality. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Individuality quotes by Harvey Fierstein
#43. Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life, but define yourself. #Quote by Harvey Fierstein
Individuality quotes by Emma Goldman
#44. The higher mental development of woman, the less possible it is for her to meet a congenial male who will see in her, not only sex, but also the human being, the friend, the comrade and strong individuality, who cannot and ought not lose a single trait of her character. #Quote by Emma Goldman
Individuality quotes by Christopher Pike
#45. If I become like you, I will have no will of my own. I will have no individuality, I will just be your puppet.'
'True.' Sio smiled thinly. 'But even a puppet may dance before its strings are drawn tight. You will dance, Cass, and the heavens will applaud you. #Quote by Christopher Pike
Individuality quotes by Rajneesh
#46. The ego and the personality have to be dropped, then you will find individuality arising ... a feeling of uniqueness. Yes, you are unique. Everybody else is also unique. In this world only unique people exist, so comparison is just stupid, because you alone are like yourself. There is nobody like you, so how to compare? #Quote by Rajneesh
Individuality quotes by John Taylor Gatto
#47. Individuality, family, and community are, by definition, expressions of singular organization, never of "one-right-way" thinking on the grand scale. Children and families need some relief from government surveillance and intimidation if original expressions belonging to THEM are to develop. Without these freedom has no meaning. #Quote by John Taylor Gatto
Individuality quotes by Franklin D. Roosevelt
#48. Remember you are just an extra in everyone else's play. #Quote by Franklin D. Roosevelt
Individuality quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#49. To be 'one' in one's own hands is to be 'one.' To be 'one' in the hands of God is to be 'one' that is far too vast to be counted. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Individuality quotes by Bill Vaughan
#50. If you think that one individual can't make a difference in the world, consider what one cigar can do in a nine-room house. #Quote by Bill Vaughan
Individuality quotes by Harold Bloom
#51. Dark influences from the American past congregate among us still. If we are a democracy, what are we to make of the palpable elements of plutocracy, oligarchy, and mounting theocracy that rule our state? How do we address the self-inflicted catastrophes that devastated our natural environment? So large is our malaise that no single writer can encompass it. We have no Emerson or Whitman among us. An institutionalized counterculture condemns individuality as archaic and depreciates intellectual values, even in the universities. (The Anatomy of Influence) #Quote by Harold Bloom
Individuality quotes by Marty Rubin
#52. It is not important that others like what you like. All that matters is that you like it. #Quote by Marty Rubin
Individuality quotes by Laurance Labadie
#53. Some people are averse to competition and allow the words 'co-operation' and 'humanism' to drool from their mouths, apparently meaning thereby a large blob of protoplasmic homogeneity that lacks all individuality. It is not individuals and their liberty that concerns them, but rather some sort of well greased squirming mass that would seem to be analogous to the brains from which such amorphous 'ideas' emanate. #Quote by Laurance Labadie
Individuality quotes by Sigmund Freud
#54. The liberty of the individual is no gift of civilization. It was greatest before there was any civilization. #Quote by Sigmund Freud
Individuality quotes by Clark Carlton
#55. Where there is self-contained individuality, there can be no love, for love means the total gift of oneself to another. True being is love, and where there is no love, there is only the absurdity of death and non-being. That is why Lossky said, "between the Trinity and hell there lies no other choice." Those who, in their spiritual blindness, deny the doctrine of the Trinity, deny love itself, and thus deny the truth of their own being created in the image of this God of Triune Love. #Quote by Clark Carlton
Individuality quotes by Charles Bukowski
#56. For me
obedience to another is the decay of self.
for though every being is similar
each being is different
and to herd our differences
under one law
degrades each self. #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Individuality quotes by Edward Abbey
#57. Where all think alike there is little danger of innovation. #Quote by Edward Abbey
Individuality quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#58. There is no prosperity, trade, art, city, or great material wealth of any kind, but if you trace it home, you will find it rooted in a thought of some individual man. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Individuality quotes by Mary Elizabeth Braddon
#59. Phoebe Marks was a person who never lost her individuality. Silent and self-contained, she seemed to hold herself within herself, and take no colour from the outer world. #Quote by Mary Elizabeth Braddon
Individuality quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#60. Further, the constitution of our consciousness is the ever present and lasting element in all we do or suffer; our individuality is persistently at work, more or less, at every moment of our life: all other influences are temporal, incidental, fleeting, and subject to every kind of chance and change. This is why Aristotle says: It is not wealth but character that lasts.
And just for the same reason we can more easily bear a misfortune which comes to us entirely from without, than one which we have drawn upon ourselves; for fortune may always change, but not character. Therefore, subjective blessings - a noble nature, a capable head, a joyful temperament, bright spirits, a well-constituted, perfectly sound physique, in a word, mens sana in corpore sano, are the first and most important elements in happiness; so that we should be more intent on promoting and preserving such qualities than on the possession of external wealth and external honor. #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Individuality quotes by Catharine MacKinnon
#61. An individual's treatment and alternatives in life may depend as much on the reputation of the group to which that person belongs as on their own merit. #Quote by Catharine MacKinnon
Individuality quotes by Laura Story
#62. Be my God, so I can just be me. #Quote by Laura Story
Individuality quotes by James F. Cooper
#63. The habit of seen the public rule, is gradually accustoming the American mind to an interference with private rights that is slowly undermining the individuality of the national character. There is getting to be so much public right, that private right is overshadowed and lost. A danger exists that the ends of liberty will be forgotten altogether in the means. #Quote by James F. Cooper
Individuality quotes by Paul Palnik
#64. See with your own eyes, hear with your own ears, think your own thoughts, say what you must say, do what you must do, love all that you can and stand on your own two feet. #Quote by Paul Palnik
Individuality quotes by Philip K. Howard
#65. We should stop looking to law to provide the final answer ... Law cannot save us from ourselves ... We have to go out and try to accomplish our goals and resolve disagreements by doing what we think is right. That energy and resourcefulness, not millions of legal cubicles, is what was great about America. Let judgment and personal conviction be important again. #Quote by Philip K. Howard
Individuality quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#66. I don't fit into any stereotypes. And I like myself that way. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Individuality quotes by Bruce Schneier
#67. For if we are observed in all matters, we are constantly under threat of correction, judgment, criticism, even plagiarism of our own uniqueness. We become children, fettered under watchful eyes, constantly fearful that - either now or in the uncertain future - patterns we leave behind will be brought back to implicate us, by whatever authority has now become focused upon our once-private and innocent acts. We lose our individuality, because everything we do is observable and recordable.
[The Eternal Value of Privacy, May 18, 2006] #Quote by Bruce Schneier
Individuality quotes by Annie Lennox
#68. It's hard to tell how far women's individuality has come in the past twenty years. #Quote by Annie Lennox
Individuality quotes by Eric Kandel
#69. It is this potential for plasticity of the relatively stereotyped units of the nervous system that endows each of us with our individuality. #Quote by Eric Kandel
Individuality quotes by Alejandro Jodorowsky
#70. When you find love, real love, it's like a catastrophe, like a tsunami. Like an earthquake, because all your individuality, all what you believed you are, it's breaking. And you are completely another person. You never know what you were. And it's a catastrophe –– but a good catastrophe, not a bad catastrophe. #Quote by Alejandro Jodorowsky
Individuality quotes by Kenneth Oppel
#71. Individuality: ten. Cautiousness: three. Combativeness: nine." She looked over and gave me a wink. "Well, what did you expect from a pirate's daughter? Hope: eight. Amativeness. What's that?"
Kate acutally blushed. "I think it has something to do with your attractiveness to the opposite sex."
"Ten," said Nadira, smiling modestly.
(Skybreaker by Kenneth Oppel) #Quote by Kenneth Oppel
Individuality quotes by Robert  Stone
#72. We tell ourselves our own stories, selectively, in order to keep our sense of self intact. #Quote by Robert Stone
Individuality quotes by Tony Robbins
#73. The beliefs that we use to define our own individuality, what makes us unique - good, bad, or indifferent - from other individuals. #Quote by Tony Robbins
Individuality quotes by Saul Bellow
#74. Public life drives out private life. The more political our society becomes (in the broadest sense of 'political' - the obsessions, the compulsions of collectivity) the more individuality seems lost. … [N]ational purpose is now involved with the manufacture of commodities in no way essential to human life, but vital to the political survival of the country. … The whole matter … has to do with invasion of the private sphere (including the sexual) by techniques of exploitation and domination. #Quote by Saul Bellow
Individuality quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#75. It is an absolute perfection ... to get the very most out of one's individuality. #Quote by Michel De Montaigne
Individuality quotes by John Stuart Mill
#76. Protection, therefore, against the tyranny of the magistrate is not enough: there needs protection also against the tyranny of the prevailing opinion and feeling; against the tendency of society to impose, by other means than civil penalties, its own ideas and practices as rules of conduct on those who dissent from them; to fetter the development, and, if possible, prevent the formation, of any individuality not in harmony with its ways, and compel all characters to fashion themselves upon the model of its own. There is a limit to the legitimate interference of #Quote by John Stuart Mill
Individuality quotes by Lust (DreadLock Monsta)
#77. In this world of stars, I just want to be different #Quote by Lust (DreadLock Monsta)
Individuality quotes by Neil Gaiman
#78. The one thing that you have that nobody else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. So write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only you can.
[Keynote Address, University of the Arts, 134th Commencement (Philadelphia, PA, May 17, 2012)] #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Individuality quotes by Hubert H. Humphrey
#79. The great challenge which faces us is to assure that, in our society of big-ness, we do not strangle the voice of creativity, that the rules of the game do not come to overshadow its purpose, that the grand orchestration of society leaves ample room for the man who marches to the music of another drummer. #Quote by Hubert H. Humphrey
Individuality quotes by Amit Abraham
#80. It is not important WHO I am. It is important WHERE I am because that makes me WHAT I am. #Quote by Amit Abraham
Individuality quotes by H. L. Balcomb
#81. Whomsoever embraces their creativity along with their individuality, embraces all possibility deep within. #Quote by H. L. Balcomb
Individuality quotes by Beth Orton
#82. I learned to embrace my individuality, and if that meant writing a song on one chord over and over again, then that's what I do. #Quote by Beth Orton
Individuality quotes by George Weinberg
#83. We have many cases of men committing suicide rather than face their own individuality. I know of no case of a woman who committed suicide because she was gay. #Quote by George Weinberg
Individuality quotes by Beat Streuli
#84. At the core of my work there is this eternal back-and-forth between being confined to one's own individuality and that longing to be part of the other, the outside world: the impossibility of ever being able to get beneath another person's skin. #Quote by Beat Streuli
Individuality quotes by C. G. Jung
#85. The achievement of psychological maturity is an individual task-and so is increasingly difficult today when man's individuality is threatened by widespread conformity. #Quote by C. G. Jung
Individuality quotes by Daniel Webster
#86. One may live as a conqueror, a king, or a magistrate; but he must die a man. The bed of death brings every human being to his pure individuality, to the intense contemplation of that deepest and most solemn of all relations - the relations between the creature and his Creator. #Quote by Daniel Webster
Individuality quotes by Peter Marshall
#87. With their concern for personal autonomy and individual freedom, anarchists more than any other socialists are aware of the inhumanity of both physical punishment and manipulative cure for anti-social members of the community. They look to reasoned argument and friendly treatment to deal with criminals and wish to respect their humanity and individuality. #Quote by Peter Marshall
Individuality quotes by Rajneesh
#88. Respect man, love man. Respect his individuality, respect his differences. And that is possible only if you respect your individuality. That is possible only if you are grounded in your own being and you are unafraid. #Quote by Rajneesh
Individuality quotes by Stephanie Dowrick
#89. Happiness can come in a single moment. And in a single moment it can go again. But a single moment does not create it. Happiness is created through countless choices made and then made again throughout a lifetime. You are its host as well as its guest. You give it form, shape, individuality, texture, tone. And what it allows you to give can change your world. Happiness can be stillness. But it isn't still. It wraps, enchants, heals, consoles, soothes, delights, calms, inspires and connects. It is on your face and in your body. It is in your life and being. #Quote by Stephanie Dowrick
Individuality quotes by Daniel Marques
#90. There are many ways to achieve the same end, and that's the meaning of life - to explore our individuality and joy in living what matches our level of understanding, wisdom and honesty. #Quote by Daniel Marques
Individuality quotes by Christiaan Barnard
#91. The individual is the brain, not the heart. #Quote by Christiaan Barnard
Individuality quotes by Tairrie B.
#92. I strike terror among men,
I can't be bothered by what they think. #Quote by Tairrie B.
Individuality quotes by John Stuart Mill
#93. All that has been said of the importance of individuality of character, and diversity in opinions and
modes of conduct, involves, as of the same unspeakable importance, diversity of education. A general State education is a mere contrivance for moulding people to be exactly like one another: and as the mould in which it casts them is that which pleases the predominant power in the government, whether this be a monarch, a priesthood, an aristocracy, or the majority of the existing generation; in proportion as it is efficient and successful, it establishes a despotism over the mind, leading by natural tendency to one over the body. An education established and
controlled by the State should only exist, if it exist at all, as one among
many competing experiments, carried on for the purpose of example and stimulus, to keep the others up to a certain standard of excellence. #Quote by John Stuart Mill
Individuality quotes by Bobbi Brown
#94. When we feel that all eyes are upon on us, it is often difficult
to take chances in expressing our individuality. #Quote by Bobbi Brown
Individuality quotes by Jasz Gill
#95. Dear Fellow Human Being,

You are born wild, You do not deserve to be tamed!

Tell yourself,

You do not deserve this!

All those toxic words you have to listen from people,

All those fears they try to pin on your mind,

All those giggles they aim at your dreams,

All those judgmental stares inspecting your individuality,

All those fingers pointing towards your crude character,

All those shackles that tie your feet to social expectations,

All those cages that do not let your imagination fly free,

Listen deeply, you do not deserve any of it.

My dear fellow human, you do not deserve this hostility.

You are born wild, You do not deserve to be tamed!

― Jasz Gill #Quote by Jasz Gill
Individuality quotes by Azar Nafisi
#96. The only way to leave the circle, to stop dancing with the jailer, is to find a way to preserve one's individuality, that unique which evades description but differentiates one human being from the other. #Quote by Azar Nafisi
Individuality quotes by E.E. Cummings
#97. As for expressing nobody-but-yourself in words, that means working just a little harder than anybody who isn't a poet can possibly imagine. Why? Because nothing is quite as easy as using words like somebody else. We all of us do exactly this nearly all of the time - and whenever we do it, we're not poets. #Quote by E.E. Cummings
Individuality quotes by James Joyce
#98. When the Irishman is found outside of Ireland in another environment, he very often becomes a respected man. The economic and intellectual conditions that prevail in his own country do not permit the development of individuality. No one who has any self-respect stays in Ireland, but flees afar as though from a country that has undergone the visitation of an angered Jove. #Quote by James Joyce
Individuality quotes by Cassandra Clare
#99. Nobody else is wearing anything even remotely like it.'
Magnus cast a disparaging look around at all the fashion-challenged sailors. 'I feel sorry for them, of course, but I do not see why that observation should alter my current extremely stylish course of action. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Individuality quotes by Jon Kabat-Zinn
#100. As much as I can, I avoid using the word "spiritual" altogether. I find it neither useful nor necessary nor appropriate in my work at the hospital bringing mindfulness into the mainstream of medicine and healthcare, nor in other settings in which we work[.] [T]o my mind, the vocabulary of spirituality creates more practical problems than it solves. [...] The concept of spirituality can narrow our thinking rather extend it.
[...] Perhaps ultimately, spiritual means experiencing wholeness and interconnectedness directly, a seeing that individuality and the totality are interwoven, that nothing is separate or extraneous, If you see in this way, then everything becomes spiritual in its deepest sense. Doing science is spiritual. So is washing the dishes. It is the inner experience which counts. And you have to be there for it. #Quote by Jon Kabat-Zinn
Individuality quotes by Dennis Merritt Jones
#101. One of the telltale signs of one who has completely embraced their authentic self is that they are, with great consistency, the same person in public as they are behind closed doors. Until you learn how to access your authentic voice, the uniqueness of who you truly are will never be fully realized. What makes you special (just like everyone else) is that you were placed here on this planet to express the one-of-a-kind being only you can be. #Quote by Dennis Merritt Jones
Individuality quotes by Sara Genn
#102. In modern times we are often encouraged to protect our ego-force and individuality by securing a private world in which to develop our unique artistic voice. Many artists find themselves solo-paddling along a private and unchallenging river ... Could rivalry be a productive system? #Quote by Sara Genn
Individuality quotes by Ashly Lorenzana
#103. I have been known to think outside of all rules. Even my own. #Quote by Ashly Lorenzana
Individuality quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#104. Your handwriting. the way you walk. which china pattern you choose. it's all giving you away. everything you do shows your hand. everything is a self portrait. everything is a diary. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Individuality quotes by Coco Chanel
#105. It's probably not just by chance that I'm alone. It would be very hard for a man to live with me, unless he's terribly strong. And if he's stronger than I, I'm the one who can't live with him. ... I'm neither smart nor stupid, but I don't think I'm a run-of-the-mill person. I've been in business without being a businesswoman, I've loved without being a woman made only for love. The two men I've loved, I think, will remember me, on earth or in heaven, because men always remember a woman who caused them concern and uneasiness. I've done my best, in regard to people and to life, without precepts, but with a taste for justice. #Quote by Coco Chanel
Individuality quotes by Rajneesh
#106. The disappearance of your person is not your disappearance, remember; on the contrary, it is your appearance. As your person disappears, your personality falls away; your individuality, your individual arises. To have a personality is hypocrisy. To be an individual is your birthright. #Quote by Rajneesh
Individuality quotes by Oscar Wilde
#107. A red rose is not selfish because it wants to be a red rose. It would be horribly selfish if it wanted all the other flowers in the garden to be both red and roses. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Individuality quotes by Lily Cole
#108. There's an inherent contradiction between appreciating the beauty of clothes and creativity and individuality, and the waste around the ideas of trends and seasons. #Quote by Lily Cole
Individuality quotes by Frank Zappa
#109. Schools train you to be ignorant with style [ ... ] they prepare you to be a usable victim for a military industrial complex that needs manpower. As long as you're just smart enough to do a job and just dumb enough to swallow what they feed you, you're going to be alright [ ... ] So I believe that schools mechanically and very specifically try and breed out any hint of creative thought in the kids that are coming up. #Quote by Frank Zappa
Individuality quotes by Noam Chomsky
#110. Life among clones would not be worth living, and a sane person will only rejoice that others have abilities that they do not share. That should be elementary. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Individuality quotes by Criss Jami
#112. Much like humans, opinions come in all shapes and forms, but in the end, they are just what they are; and may yet still be categorized in nature. The first you might say is the Indoctrinal, which is, of course, dictated by community and necessity, by the human need for acceptance; secondly, there is the Personal, and this is often dictated by individuality, by the yearning to seem interesting and intelligent, or free, or special; and lastly comes the Emotional. This is most commonly dictated by circumstance and bitterness and excitement. However, rarely do we find the case in which any of these are dictated by reason in the pure state: it is by this we see that at the core of a number of false opinions lies not always misinformation but quite often some issue of the human self. #Quote by Criss Jami
Individuality quotes by Paul Krassner
#113. I am neither for conformity nor non-conformity. I am for individuality. If one's individuality is in effect non-conformity, then so be it. But basically, one's individuality consists of conformity
to one's self. #Quote by Paul Krassner
Individuality quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#114. I claim the right to be who I want to be. Regardless of my choice, I will find those who agree and those who don't. I will gain support, and I will confront opposition, but I will stand firmly as me.
It is my choice.
It is the only real choice I have to make. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Individuality quotes by Gabor Mate
#115. Peer-oriented kids are repelled by similarity to their parents and want to be as different as possible from them. Since sameness means closeness, pursuing difference is a way of distancing. Such children will often go out of their way to take the opposite point of view and form opposite kinds of preferences. They are filled with contrary opinions and judgments.

We may confuse this obsessive need for difference from the parents with the child's quest for individuality. That would be a misreading of the situation. Genuine individuation would be manifested in all of the child's relationships, not just with adults. A child truly seeking to be her own person asserts her selfhood in the face of all pressures to conform. Quite the reverse, many of these "strongly individualistic" children are completely consumed with melding with their peer group, appalled by anything that may make them seem different. What adults see as the child's individualism masks an intense drive to conform to peers. #Quote by Gabor Mate
Individuality quotes by Dean Koontz
#116. Variety is not the spice of life. It is the mother of disorder. Individuality is not the hallmark of freedom. It is the essence of decadence. Freedom is slavery to chaos. Unity is peace, all thinking and acting as one. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Individuality quotes by Rene Descartes
#117. [ ... ] the diversity of our opinions, consequently, does not arise from some being endowed with a larger share of reason than others, but solely from this, that we conduct our thoughts along different ways, and do not fix our attention on the same objects. For to be possessed of a vigorous mind is not enough; the prime requisite is rightly to apply it. The greatest minds, as they are capable of the highest excellences, are open likewise to the greatest aberrations; and those who travel very slowly may yet make far greater progress, provided they keep always to the straight road, than those who, while they run, forsake it. #Quote by Rene Descartes
Individuality quotes by Dave Grohl
#118. Develop that individuality by working as hard as you can at what you love. #Quote by Dave Grohl
Individuality quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#119. The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Individuality quotes by David Trumble
#120. It's through our unique flaws that our individuality can be expressed. #Quote by David Trumble
Individuality quotes by Erik Pevernagie
#121. How should one keep a balanced spirit, if the standards in our lives and in the world are constantly reshuffled? Come rain or shine, let's not fear our own shadow or desperately simmer down whistling in the dark, but let's speak up and make our point, and comprehend ourselves in our surroundings, with our very own individuality. ("Was it all worthwhile?") #Quote by Erik Pevernagie
Individuality quotes by Eddie Rickenbacker
#122. The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: Initiative, Imagination, Individuality and Independence. #Quote by Eddie Rickenbacker
Individuality quotes by Ayaan Hirsi Ali
#123. As a reader, I could put on someone else's shoes and live through his adventures, borrow his individuality and make choices that I didn't have at home. #Quote by Ayaan Hirsi Ali
Individuality quotes by Anton Szandor LaVey
#124. We don't worship Satan, we worship ourselves using the metaphorical representation of the qualities of Satan. Satan is the name used by Judeo-Christians for that force of individuality and pride within us. But the force itself has been called by many names.We embrace Christian myths of Satan and Lucifer, along with Satanic renderings in Greek, Roman, Islamic, Sumerian, Syrian, Phrygian, Egyptian, Chinese or Hindu mythologies, to name but a few. We are not limited to one deity, but encompass all the expressions of the accuser or the one who advocates free thought and rational alternatives by whatever name he is called in a particular time and land. It so happens that we are living in a culture that is predominantly Judeo-Christian, so we emphasize Satan. If we were living in Roman times, the central figure, perhaps the title of our religion, would be different. But the name would be expressing and communicating the same thing. It's all context. #Quote by Anton Szandor LaVey
Individuality quotes by Martin Wickramasinghe
#125. Tissa reflected that religion is divine poetry whilst morality is made up of customs and traditions that change with the place and the times. How do men who read the same books he reads, live on the same kind of food in the same world and social class, differ so much from him and from each other in mind and body? He concluded that his present state of body and mind that gives rise to his reflections cannot be just the outcome of books he read and the food he ate, nor his own efforts to adapt to his world and his social class. Human beings are born with an individuality that is unique to each, but this cannot be attributed to the presence or absence of a soul. The same individuality is there in each leaf, and one leaf differs from another. Yet all the leaves get the same nourishment from the roots of the tree, and the sun and the air. #Quote by Martin Wickramasinghe
Individuality quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#126. You are a sacred-being. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Individuality quotes by Tahir Shah
#127. As the man was bundled into an armoured police van, he turned and shouted: 'Don't waste your life following others! Be individual! Live your dreams!'

I stood there thinking. He was right. Ours is a society of followers, trapped by an island mentality. #Quote by Tahir Shah
Individuality quotes by Caitlin Moran
#128. Your hard-won triumphs can be wholly negated if you live in a climate where your victories are seen as threatening, incorrect, distasteful, or
most crucially of all, for a teenage girl
simply uncool. Few girls would choose to be right
right, down into their clever, brilliant bones
but lonely. #Quote by Caitlin Moran
Individuality quotes by Gilles Deleuze
#129. Bring something incomprehensible into the world! #Quote by Gilles Deleuze
Individuality quotes by Chittaranjan Das
#130. We stand then for freedom, because we claim the right to develop our own individuality and evolve our own destiny along our own lines, unembarrassed by what Western civilisation has to teach us and unhampered by the institutions which the West has imposed. #Quote by Chittaranjan Das
Individuality quotes by Confucius
#131. The Master said of Gong Yechang, "He is marriageable. Although he was once imprisoned and branded as a criminal, he was in fact innocent of any crime." The Master gave him his daughter in marriage.

Individuality quotes by Bharati Mukherjee
#132. Ancestral habits of mind can be constricting; they also confer one's individuality. #Quote by Bharati Mukherjee
Individuality quotes by Margaret Mitchell
#133. I stood there in the doorway before you saw me and I watched you,' he said.'And I watched the other girls. And they all looked as though their faces came out of one mold. Yours didn't. #Quote by Margaret Mitchell
Individuality quotes by Simone De Beauvoir
#134. The Communists , following Hegel , speak of humanity and its future as of some monolithic individuality. I was attacking this illusion. #Quote by Simone De Beauvoir
Individuality quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#135. Some writers probe their quest for individuality; others explore loneliness, anxiety, and sense of alienation. Writers lament injustice, grief, and dejection. Some writers devote their efforts to an appraisal of ontological torment. Some writers seek to examine the implications of life and death by reflecting upon the restrictions and insufficiency of the human condition. Some writers survey the ramifications of fractured human consciousness in an industrial and scientific community undergoing rapid technological changes. Many writers attempt to release their inner tension and employ writing as a transformative process to effect personal change in their lives. If a person writes as they dream, they will encounter an inner world that assists them function in an awakened state. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster

Individuality quotes by Tony Hawk
#137. I love the fact that there is now a skate park in almost every city, but it will always have a rebellious/underground edge to it because it is based on individuality. #Quote by Tony Hawk

#138. There is no such thing as group originality, group creativity or group perspicacity. #Quote by Edwin Land
Individuality quotes by Alan Rudolph

Individuality quotes by Carl Jung
#140. The self is our life's goal, for it is the completest expression of that fateful combination we call individuality. #Quote by Carl Jung
Individuality quotes by Stanley Kubrick
#141. You have not yet learned that in this life you have to be like everyone else: the perfect mediocrity
no better, no worse. Individuality is a monster and it must be strangled in its cradle to make our friends feel comfortable. #Quote by Stanley Kubrick
Individuality quotes by Aldous Huxley
#142. We love ourselves to the point of idolatry; but we also intensely dislike ourselves - we find ourselves unutterably boring. Correlated with this distaste for the idolatrously worshipped self, there is in all of us a desire, sometimes latent, sometimes conscious and passionately expressed, to escape from the prison of our individuality, an urge to self-transcendence. It is to this urge that we owe mystical theology, spiritual exercises and yoga - to this, too, that we owe alcoholism and drug addiction. #Quote by Aldous Huxley
Individuality quotes by Dwaun S. Cox
#143. You are one of one for a reason. It's a gift to be different, a blessing to be unique, and there's an advantage to being an original. You can't get what's yours while striving to be somebody else. Embrace your individuality, so you can appreciate everyone else's. #Quote by Dwaun S. Cox
Individuality quotes by Edwin Hubbel Chapin
#144. We move too much in platoons; we march by sections; we do not live in our vital individuality enough; we are slaves to fashion, in mind and in heart, if not to our passions and appetites. #Quote by Edwin Hubbel Chapin
Individuality quotes by Hermann Hesse
#145. If the chick is not able to break the shell of his egg, he will die without being born. We are - chick. The world - is our egg. If we do not break the shell of the world, then we will die without being born #Quote by Hermann Hesse

Individuality quotes by Litymunshi
#147. there is no space in a relationship -that may die easily by suffocation . partner has to understand
being together does not mean keeping each other
wallet or bank locker keys. mostly women leave
such things on men ,but men hold the keys with
them most in cases .though other side do the same .this is big reason we misunderstand our space freedom . relationship dies when one of partner cross this space and interfere the free air of individuality . now question is __ then it is relationship. we love each other . we must share our secrets ." the fact is you must respect your relationship . it is not to own .it is for living .worth to grow in individuality . #Quote by Litymunshi
Individuality quotes by Anton Chekhov
#148. Wine and tobacco destroy the individuality. After a cigar or a glass of vodka you are no longer Peter Sorin, but Peter Sorin plus somebody else. Your ego breaks in two: you begin to think of yourself in the third person. #Quote by Anton Chekhov
Individuality quotes by Lorraine Heath
#149. You don't care what people think," he said.
She couldn't tell from the way he emphasized the words if he was asking a question or making an observation. Still, she felt obliged to answer.
"Of course I care. To a certain extent we all care, but we can't care to the point that we live in fear of others' opinion, that we allow them to change who we are. We must be willing to stand up and defend what represents the very core of our being. Otherwise what is the purpose of individuality? We'd be nothing but imitations of each other, and I daresay we'd all be rather boring. #Quote by Lorraine Heath
Individuality quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#150. The latter are to lose their individuality and turn into something like cattle, and with this unlimited obedience attain, through a series of regenerations, a primordial innocence, something like the primordial paradise, although they will have to work. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Individuality quotes by Anna Louise Strong
#151. We humans are herd animals of the monkey tribe, not natural individuals as lions are. Our individuality is partial and restless; the stream of consciousness that we call 'I' is made of shifting elements that flow from our group and back to our group again. Always we seek to be ourselves and the herd together, not One against the herd. #Quote by Anna Louise Strong
Individuality quotes by William S. Burroughs
#152. To be an outlaw you must first have a base in law to reject and get out of, I never had such a base. I never had a place I could call home that meant any more than a key to a house, apartment or hotel room. ... Am I alien? Alien from what exactly? Perhaps my home is my dream city, more real than my waking life precisely because it has no relation to waking life ... #Quote by William S. Burroughs
Individuality quotes by Iris Apfel
#153. Creativity is down the tube. And people give a lot of lip service to individuality. I know they all appreciate it, but they all say they would like to do it, but they don't want to work at it, and it doesn't come out of the sky. #Quote by Iris Apfel
Individuality quotes by Osamu Dazai
#154. Now, even when I make an outfit for myself, I wonder what other people will think. The truth is that I secretly love what seems to be my own individuality, and I hope I always will, but fully embodying it is another matter. I always want everyone to think I am a good girl. Whenever I am around a lot of people, it is amazing how obsequious I can be. I fib and chatter away, saying things I don't want to or mean in any way. I feel like it is to my advantage to do so. I hate it. I hope for a revolution in ethics and morals. Then, my obsequiousness and this need to plod through life according to others' expectations would simply dissolve. Oh, #Quote by Osamu Dazai
Individuality quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#155. What did I fear, and why? - I, to whom the night had been
a more familiar face
than that of man
I, in whom that element of hereditary superstition from which none of us is altogether free had given to solitude and darkness and silence only a more alluring interest and charm! #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
Individuality quotes by William James
#156. Individuality outruns all classification, yet we insist on classifying every one we meet under some general head. #Quote by William James
Individuality quotes by John C. Wright
#157. Rhadamanthus said, "We seem to you humans to be always going on about morality, although, to us, morality is merely the application of symmetrical and objective logic to questions of free will. We ourselves do not have morality conflicts, for the same reason that a competent doctor does not need to treat himself for diseases. Once a man is cured, once he can rise and walk, he has his business to attend to. And there are actions and feats a robust man can take great pleasure in, which a bedridden cripple can barely imagine."

Eveningstar said, "In a more abstract sense, morality occupies the very center of our thinking, however. We are not identical, even though we could make ourselves to be so. You humans attempted that during the Fourth Mental Structure, and achieved a brief mockery of global racial consciousness on three occasions. I hope you recall the ending of the third attempt, the Season of Madness, when, because of mistakes in initial pattern assumptions, for ninety days the global mind was unable to think rationally, and it was not until rioting elements broke enough of the links and power houses to interrupt the network, that the global mind fell back into its constituent compositions."

Rhadamanthus said, "There is a tension between the need for unity and the need for individuality created by the limitations of the rational universe. Chaos theory produces sufficient variation in events, that no one stratagem maximizes win-loss ratios. Then again #Quote by John C. Wright

Individuality quotes by Zakir Malik
#162. Think bigger than circle of environed issues,
Study, be an ideal of dream society;
Free of disgraceful attachment of values,
Dream higher than those individualistic goals #Quote by Zakir Malik
Individuality quotes by Eamonn Butler
#163. To Friedman, a free society is a more moral society, because it respects the moral primacy of the individual. It is only through their own free choices that people express their values, and therefore their individuality and their humanity. Without that freedom, we count no more than sheep. To be truly human, we must be free, and responsible for our own actions. The majority may not approve of what we choose, or may think they know what is best for us; but that gives them no right to dictate what we may drink or inject, nor to force us into military service, nor to steal our property and income for their own purposes. #Quote by Eamonn Butler
Individuality quotes by Philip Rieff
#164. Self-confidence is inseparable from submission to the creedal order, and through that order, to the supreme authority expressed in that order ... Deep individualism cannot exist except in relation to the highest authority. No inner discipline can operate without a charismatic institution, nor can such an institution survive without that supreme authority from a relation to whom self-confidence derives. Without an authority deeply installed, there is no foundation for individuality. Self-confidence thus expresses submission to supreme authority. #Quote by Philip Rieff
Individuality quotes by Shirley Maclaine
#165. For if the talent or individuality is there, it should be expressed. If it doesn't find its way out into the air, it can be turned inward and gnaw like the fox at the Spartan boy's belly. #Quote by Shirley Maclaine
Individuality quotes by China Mieville
#166. The point is that you are an individual inasmuch as you exist in a social matrix of others who respect your individuality and your right to make choices. That's concrete individuality: an individuality that it owes its existence to a kind of communal respect on the part of all the other individualities, and that it had better therefore respect them similarly. #Quote by China Mieville
Individuality quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#167. A man is known by the books he reads. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Individuality quotes by Olaf Stapledon
#168. Month by month, year by year, there took shape in Paul's mind a new and lucid image of his world, an image at once terrible and exquisite, tragic and farcical. It is difficult to give an idea of this new vision of Paul's, for its power depended largely on the immense intricacy and diversity of his recent experience; on his sense of the hosts of individuals swarming upon the planet, here sparsely scattered, there congested into great clusters and lumps of humanity. Speaking in ten thousand mutually incomprehensible dialects, living in manners reprehensible or ludicrous to one another, thinking by concepts unintelligible to one another, they worshipped in modes repugnant to one another. This new sense of the mere bulk and variety of men was deepened in Paul's mind by his enhanced apprehension of individuality in himself and others, his awed realization that each single unit in all these earth-devastating locust armies carried about with it a whole cognized universe. On the other hand, since he was never wholly forgetful of the stars, the shock between his sense of human littleness in the cosmos and his new sense of man's physical bulk and spiritual intensity increased his wonder. Thus in spite of his perception of the indefeasible reality of everyday things, he had also an overwhelming conviction that the whole fabric of common experience, nay the whole agreed universe of human and biological and astronomical fact, though real, concealed some vaster reality. #Quote by Olaf Stapledon
Individuality quotes by Philip Gourevitch
#169. The spectre of an absolute menace that requires absolute eradication binds leader and people in a hermetic utopian embrace, and the individual - always an annoyance to totality - ceases to exist. #Quote by Philip Gourevitch

#170. Berg made himself unique so comparisons were impossible. #Quote by Nicholas Dawidoff
Individuality quotes by Erin O'Connor
#171. Conformism is a potent statement, and as much as we do talk about individuality in fashion, there's a sense that people are fearful of not conforming and not being part of action. #Quote by Erin O'Connor
Individuality quotes by Lawrence Block

Individuality quotes by Graham Greene

Individuality quotes by Rita Rudner
#176. Individuality in dressing is not important to men. If they all look alike it means they haven't made a mistake. #Quote by Rita Rudner
Individuality quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#177. You can't, if you can't feel it, if it never
Rises from the soul, and sways
The heart of every single hearer,
With deepest power, in simple ways.
You'll sit forever, gluing things together,
Cooking up a stew from other's scraps,
Blowing on a miserable fire,
Made from your heap of dying ash.
Let apes and children praise your art,
If their admiration's to your taste,
But you'll never speak from heart to heart,
Unless it rises up from your heart's space. #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Individuality quotes by David Spangler
#178. To embody a new paradigm of civilization - to learn to think like a planet in order to heal and nurture a planet - is not a typical hero's task. It is more the task of a gardener. The planet does not offer us challenges to be overcome to prove our worth or individuality; it presents us with a community to understand, a community with disparate needs and identities that are nonetheless intertwined in mutual dependencies. #Quote by David Spangler
Individuality quotes by Boy George
#179. Part of me looks at the gay movement now and worries that we're losing our individuality. #Quote by Boy George
Individuality quotes by Pete Sampras
#180. Andre always seemed bent on asserting his individuality and independence, while I tried to submerge my individuality and accepted the loss of some personal freedoms. Andre was Joe Frazier to my Muhammad Ali, although the personalities were kind of flipped around because Andre was the showman and I was the craftsman. Wherever you lived, we were your neighbors: I was the nice, quiet kid next door on one side, and Andre was the rebellious teenager on the other. #Quote by Pete Sampras
Individuality quotes by Milan Kundera
#181. The novel was born with the Modern Era, which made man, to quote Heidegger, the "only real subject," the ground for everything. It is largely through the novel that man as an individual was established on the European scene. Away from the novel, in our real lives, we know very little about our parents as they were before our birth; we have only fragmentary knowledge of the people close to us: we see them come and go and scarcely have they vanished than their place is taken over by others: they form a long line of replaceable beings. Only the novel separates out an individual, trains a light on his biography, his ideas, his feelings, makes him irreplaceable: makes him the center of everything. #Quote by Milan Kundera
Individuality quotes by Clarence Thomas
#182. I don't believe in quotas. America was founded on a philosophy of individual rights, not group rights. #Quote by Clarence Thomas

Individuality quotes by Abraham Maslow
#186. A person who makes full use of and exploits his talents, potentialities, and capacities. Such a person seems to be fulfilling himself and doing the best he is capable of doing. The self-actualized person must find in his life those qualities that make his living rich and rewarding. He must find meaningfulness, self-sufficiency, effortlessness, playfulness, richness, simplicity, completion, necessity, perfection, individuality, beauty, and truth. #Quote by Abraham Maslow
Individuality quotes by Gautama Buddha
#187. Surely if living creatures saw the results of all their evil deeds, they would turn away from them in disgust. But selfhood blinds them, and they cling to their obnoxious desires. They crave pleasure for themselves and they cause pain to others; when death destroys their individuality, they find no peace; their thirst for existence abides and their selfhood reappears in new births. Thus they continue to move in the coil and can find no escape from the hell of their own making. #Quote by Gautama Buddha
Individuality quotes by Jaggi Vasudev

Individuality quotes by Oswald Chambers
#193. Once your rights to yourself are surrendered to God, your true personal nature begins responding to God immediately. Jesus Christ brings freedom to your total person, and even your individuality is transformed. The transformation is brought about by love - personal devotion to Jesus. Love is the overflowing result of one person in true fellowship with another. #Quote by Oswald Chambers
Individuality quotes by Carl Jung
#194. It is the individual's task to differentiate himself from all the others and stand on his own feet. All collective identities ... interfere with the fulfillment of this task. Such collective identities are crutches for the lame, shields for the timid, beds for the lazy, nurseries for the irresponsible ... #Quote by Carl Jung

Individuality quotes by Frank Knight
#197. Market competition is the only form of organization which can afford a large measure of freedom to the individual. #Quote by Frank Knight
Individuality quotes by Robert A. Nisbet
#198. We may regard totalitarianism as a process of the annihilation of individuality, but, in more fundamental terms, it is the annihilation, first, of those social relationships within which individuality develops. It is not the extermination of individuals that is ultimately desired by totalitarian rulers, for individuals in the largest number are needed by the new order. What is desired is the extermination of those social relationships which, by their autonomous existence, must always constitute a barrier to the achievement of the absolute political community. The individual alone is powerless. Individual will and memory, apart from the reinforcement of associative tradition, are weak and ephemeral. How well the totalitarian rulers know it. (…) To destroy or diminish the reality of the smaller areas of society, to abolish or restrict the range of cultural alternatives offered individuals by economic endeavor, religion, and kinship, is to destroy in time the roots of the will to resist despotism in its large forms. #Quote by Robert A. Nisbet

#199. I think everybody's weird. We should all celebrate our individuality and not be embarrassed or ashamed of it. #Quote by Johnny Depp
Individuality quotes by Maurice Merleau Ponty
#200. Humanity is not an aggregate of individuals, a community of thinkers, each of whom is guaranteed from the outset to be able to reach agreement with the others because all participate in the same thinking essence. Nor, of course, is it a single Being in which the multiplicity of individuals are dissolved and into which these individuals are destined to be reabsorbed. As a matter of principle, humanity is precarious: each person can only believe what he recognizes to be true internally and, at the same time, nobody thinks or makes up his mind without already being caught up in certain relationships with others, which leads him to opt for a particular set of opinions. Everyone is alone and yet nobody can do without other people, not just because they are useful (which is not in dispute here) but also when it comes to happiness. #Quote by Maurice Merleau Ponty
