Authenticity has been a pursuit of man through the ages.
Our life is what our thoughts make it
~ Marcus Aurelius Antoninus
This above all:
To thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.
~ Hamlet, Shakespeare
Francis of Assisi
Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate ~
We would rather be ruined than changed.
We would rather die in our dread
Than climb the cross of the present
And let our illusions die
~ W.H.Auden, The Age of Anxiety
Each of us is something of a schizophrenic personality, tragically divided against ourselves.
~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
