A Quote by This American Life on vulnerable, vulnerability, authentic, authenticity, emotion, feeling, and high school

...being a good actor is the exact emotional opposite of what it takes to be a successful inmate. Rather than close off all feeling and look tough, you have to open your vulnerable self up, and withstand often cruel laughter as you try to find some authentic emotion within you. In this way, a Level IV, high-security prison is no different from high school.

A Quote by Gwyneth Paltrow on expectations, authentic, authenticity, eccentric, and eccentricity

It is finally when you let go of what people expect you to be and people's perceptions of you that you're able to be the version of yourself that you're supposed to be - like in God's eyes.  It doesn't matter if you're half crazy, or eccentric, or whatever it is - that you have to be true to who you were born to be.

A Quote by Joel Garfinkle on unique, uniqueness, talent, gift, authentic, authenticity, joy, power, and passion

The task is to recognize that you are uniquely special, have something to give, some talent no one else shares in quite the same way. This gift needs to blossom so we can appreciate and enjoy the benefits of it and acknowledge you for it.   You owe this to yourself and to all of us to honor your gifts, for only when you share your unique joy with the world does the entire world benefit. Every advance mankind has known has come because of someone's effort. Don't let shyness rob you and the world of the power and the passion that lies within you. No one can be all that you will be except you yourself. Follow your passion.

A Quote by unknown on authentic, authenticity, buddha, zarathustra, joy, truth, jesus, being, expression, express, and expressed

Every human being brings a truth into the world. Every human being is a messenger of God - not only Jesus or Buddha or Zarathustra; they know they are; others don't know that they are. But the moment you are born you bring a truth in your being. And unless that truth is expressed you will not feel contented. Unless you deliver the message to the world you will feel a deep discomfort because you are not fulfilling your duty towards existence.
You have to sing the song of your heart. You have to dance your dance. You have to be utterly individual, not an imitation, not a carbon copy. You have to bring out your original face. The moment you are able to reveal your original face to the world, your life will be fulfilled. Tremendous joy arises out of it.

A Quote by Dalai Lama on dalai lama, discernment, truth, authenticity, and respect

On love, not harming others, and respecting all beings.  Even animals have these elements in their behavioral patterns.  We should start by observing how animals act.  They are honest and appreciate it when we are honest with them.  If you present something nice to an animal in one hand while hiding a rope in the other, the creature will know your intention.  Yet animals have no religion, no constitution.  Basic nature has endowed them with the faculty of discernment.  It is the same for humans.

A Quote by Tracy Phaup on unique, infinity, authentic, authenticity, and relationship

You are one in infinity.  There will never ever be another you no matter how far into the future - nor how far into the past - we look, and that makes you priceless beyond measure just the way you are.   We all are - and we all forget - that's why we have each other.  It's in the very reminding that we are reminded.
