Yogi Berra (1925-, American baseball player)


A wonderful realization will be the day you realize that you are unique in all the world. There is nothing that is an accident. You are a special combination for a purpose -- and don't let them tell you otherwise, even if they tell you that purpose is an illusion. (Live an illusion if you have to). You are that combination so that you can do what is essential for you to do. Don't ever believe that you have nothing to contribute. The world is an incredible unfulfilled tapestry. And only you can fulfill that tiny space that is yours.


Leo Buscaglia (1924-1998, American expert on love, lecturer, author)

Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900, German philosopher)


I may not be better than other people, but at least I'm different.


Jean Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778, Swiss political philosopher, educationist, essayist)


Few men are of one plain, decided color; most are mixed, shaded or blended; and vary as much from different situations, as changeable silks do from different lights.


Philip Dormer Stanhope


You are unique, just like everyone else.
