Quote of the Day: On nonconformity

“Whoso would be a man, must be a nonconformist. He who would
gather immortal palms must not be hindered by the name of
goodness, but must explore it if it be goodness. Nothing is at last
sacred but the integrity of your own mind. Absolve you to yourself,
and you shall have the suffrage of the world.”
- Ralph Waldo Emerson, from Self-Reliance and Other Essays
