Be yourself

Sometimes we can feel that we are just a number, just a face in the crowd.  It’s at those moments that we need to remember how less interesting the crowd would be without us in it.  Everyone brings something to the table.  Below are a few quotes that help me remember this very lesson:

Judy Garland image from filmmusicsociety.org

Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.
Judy Garland

Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.
Dr. Seuss

This above all: to thine own self be true.
William Shakespeare

He who trims himself to suit everyone will soon whittle himself away.
Raymond Hull

The best you can be at any given moment is yourself.
Elizabeth Alraune

About all you can do in life is be who you are.
Rita Mae Brown

What you are will show in what you do.
Thomas A. Edison

Embrace your uniqueness. Time is much too short to be living someone else’s life.
Kobi Yamada

All the knowledge I possess everyone else can acquire, but my heart is all my own.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Do you have a quote that inspires you to be your very best?

    Some nice quotes and so true!

  2. Thanks, Nicole. The William Shakespeare one is my mantra! MJ

  3. I’ve always liked “Bloom where you’re planted”. That’s kind of being yourself, right?!

    Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting today. Being freshly pressed today has introduced me to so many new blogs! I’m planning to read more of your posts, and hope you’ll come back to visit my blog soon!

  4. PS – Meant to say that I love your header photo!

  5. Good advice, especially when so much in our culture encourages sameness…a desire to mimic the cool and fashionable, to have the stuff that everyone else has.

    I think this is especially a valuable message for children. Great quotes!
