eccentric

A Quote by James Hillman on character, eccentric, hero, uncertainty, self, dislocation of self, and blessing

The character truest to itself becomes eccentric rather than immovably centered, as Emerson defined the noble character of the hero. At the edge, the certainty of borders gives way. We are more subject to invasions, less able to mobilize defenses, less sure of who we really are, even as we may be perceived by others as a person of character. The dislocation of self from center to indefinite edge merges us more with the world, so that we can feel “blest by everything.”

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.

Live dangerously; take risks; cultivate eccentricity, which means growing closer to being yourself. This will give you a life worth living and of which you can be proud.
