Quotography: Alike

Alike-quotography 72

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.
~Lydia Maria Child

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?

  1. Love the quote. What makes me unique? Me, just being me. While my beliefs, my opinions, my dress is shared in common with some, there are still differences. I maintain my right to believe as I do despite the fact that those beliefs differ from many of my friends. I maintain my right to follow my path or not, as I choose.

  2. Lisa, first of all I love both the quote you shared and your photograph. What a stunningly beautiful photo!

    And second, I love that you incorporated Martin Luther into this topic because he’s a perfect example!

    I think what makes me the most proud about my individualism is that I’m not afraid to try something new. I don’t allow my fears to stop me.

    Great post, my friend! Have a stellar week!

  3. That is a breathtaking picture and you are right we are each so unique. My children are all so different from each other and so are my grandchildren. I don’t often think about my own uniqueness I’ll have to give it some thought.

  4. That is a beautiful quote and thought provoking. I can’t honestly say that I’ve ever thought about what makes me unique, though I certainly believe that we are each individuals with our own stories. This is precisely why to judge others never make sense; we can’t know what it’s like to walk in their shoes.

    Speaking of shoes… Oh right. My passion for foot fashion is shared by millions. 🙂
