Be Your True Self - Quote

“The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.”

Friedrich Nietzsche


  1. Well said.
    All humans should be owned by ME, and only ME!

  2. Forgot to say, that quote of mine is Copyrighted by The Real Mother Hen, All Rights Reserved 2008

  3. WOW...I LOVE the last sentence!!!! ;-D

    Anyway, here's an award for you:

    Biggest Heart Award

    And go check out my latest adventure: cutting my own hair. Do you think it's a disaster? Go ahead and tell me the truth. I posted a picture of my new haircut HI HI HI HI HI...

  4. Amel - thank you for the award! ;-)

    Mother Hen... i'm still laughing.

    The evil hen takes over the universe... cackling madly!

  5. how 'bout this one:

    "People are measured by the challenges overcome given the resources available."

    I always liked that one because someone like Franklin Roosevelt who was in a wheelchair 1/3 of his life "really shines" and it's kind of an offshoot of "To those given the most, the most is expected!"

  6. I love this. Love it, and live it as much as humanly possible... :)

  7. Hi Vince

    Thanks for the quotes. :-)I also love Eleanor Roosevelt quotes even more. I think she was a brilliant brave woman.

    Hi Holly

    it's so great having you back around again. You have been MISSED! :-)

  8. That Nietzsche guy HAD to go and think of all the best quotes, now didn't he!? :-)

    OK, I'll give it a bash: (not that I want to be competing with the Big Guns of philosophy now - I'm far too humble for that)

    "Independence of thought is more important than intelligence. Independent of thought IS intelligence."
