A Quote by Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky on originality, creativity, compliance, society, yes man, surrender, and career

What tender and devoted mother wouldn't be dismayed and ill with terror at her son's or daughter's stepping even one hair's breath off the beaten track. No, better let him be happy and live in comfort without originality, is what every mother thinks when she rocks the cradle. The only person among us who can fail to reach the general's rank is the original man - in other words, the man who won't be quiet.

Fyodor Dostoevsky (1821 - 1881)

A Quote by Marsha Sinetar on acceptance, patience, vocation, career, and inner-man

Self-acceptance does not come about in practice overnight. Neither does learning how to be patient with ourselves. But if we have any hope of finding a dream vocation or career, we must be on good terms with our hearts, so that we can discover what it is that our inner-man of the heart (to use St. Peter's term) wants to do. For this, patience and self-acceptance are required.
