So says Regina Brett, a 90 (but really 54 year) old woman who has recently risen to internet/FB/ fame and has gone viral. Now admittedly, she is not the first person to spout these life lessons. Remember, they are universal!
Just wanted to post one of my favorites. I hope you enjoy.
“I am an artist you know … it is my right to be odd.”
Be eccentric now. Don’t wait for old age to wear purple. (or blue as the case may be)
“I am not eccentric. It’s just that I am more alive than most people. I am an unpopular electric eel set in a pond of catfish.”
“I’d rather be a little weird than all boring.”
“In this age, the mere example of non-conformity, the mere refusal to bend the knee to custom, is itself a service. Precisely because the tyranny of opinion is such as to make eccentricity a reproach, it is desirable, in order to break through that tyranny, that people should be eccentric. Eccentricity has always abounded when and where strength of character has abounded; and the amount of eccentricity in a society has generally been proportional to the amount of genius, mental vigor, and moral courage which it contained. That so few now dare to be eccentric, marks the chief danger of the time.”
