  • I like those quotes - I often quote the first Oscar Wilde quote about everyone else been already taken, of the others I really like Henry David Thoreau's "Be yourself- not your idea of what you think somebody else’s idea of yourself should be"

  • be your self , no matter what they say ;p ( Sting)
