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:

Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.
Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.
This above all: to thine own self be true.
He who trims himself to suit everyone will soon whittle himself away.
The best you can be at any given moment is yourself.
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.
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?
