If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.

—Henry David Thoreau

"Self-respect cannot be hunted. It cannot be purchased. It is never for sale. It cannot be fabricated out of public relations. It comes to us when we are alone, in quiet moments, in quiet places, when we suddenly realize that, knowing the good, we have done it; knowing the beautiful, we have served it; knowing the truth, we have spoken it." - Alfred Whitney Griswold

Nice quote Mark. Of course, it would be simpler to see your face when you quote this, just to be sure about tone ;)

Hi colorsonmymind, I'm enjoying Poetry Thursday, at the moment it comes round so fast though and I keep intending to write something for it but haven't yet :)

You try to be sensitive - and (sniff) you get shot down in flames :)
Came across the quote by accident - but liked it just the same. Have a lovely weekend Di!
