Be an individualist.

One of the loneliest things you will do is to be yourself when others expect you to be something else.

"Every individual nature has its own beauty.--In every company, at every fireside, one is struck with the riches of nature, when he hears so many tones, all musical, sees in each person original manners which have a proper and peculiar charm, and reads new expressions of face.--He perceives that nature has laid for each the foundations of a divine building if the soul will build thereon." ~Emerson
