Nature made us individuals, as she did the flowers and the pebbles; but we are afraid to be peculiar, and so our society resembles a bag of marbles, or a string of mold candles. Why should we all dress after the same fashion? The frost never paints my windows twice alike.

Kelley over at the road goes ever on selected ‘alike’ as the prompt for Quotography this week. While my selected quote does relate to the prompt, it speaks more to promoting our delicious differences so we’re not little clones of each other.
Today, Monday, Jan. 18th, is the day we commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. and his tireless efforts to promote an unconventional, non-violent message of peace and brotherly love across racial lines….despite the group “alike” think that spoke otherwise that was so prevalent in the 60s. He dared to be different in both his approach and speech to combat separation, alienation and hostility. At the ultimate cost.
What makes you unique?
What is the quirkiest thing about your personality?
What makes you most proud about your individualism?
