Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.

"But the fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton, they laughed at the Wright brothers. But they also laughed at Bozo the Clown." - Carl Sagan
"I'm not afraid of dying. It's fate. What I'm afraid of is time. I'm afraid of not having enough time to do everything, to get what I want done. I'm afraid that I won't have enough time to find out who I am, my place in this world, and the people who matter to me. I'm afraid of time."
