Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind. Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.
Those who matter don't mind, and those who mind don't matter.
To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.
Always be a first-rate version of yourself.
Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.
It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for something you are not.
Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself.
Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself.
Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.
Be what you are. This is the first step toward becoming better than you are.
Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim.
To be nobody-but-yourself - in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else - means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.
About all you can do in life is be who you are.
It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.
Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.
God has given you one face, and you make yourself another.
If God had wanted me otherwise, He would have created me otherwise.
Every time you don't follow your inner guidance, you feel a loss of energy, loss of power, a sense of spiritual deadness.
You don't need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.
About all you can do in life is be who you are. Some people will love you for you. Most will love you for what you can do for them, and some won't like you at all.
