Thoughts for the Day

To be nobody but myself — 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. -E.E. Cummings, poet (1894-1962)

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle [with his ego].
