A Quote by Butler Shaffer on collectivism, individuality, and liberty

What you and I have in common with each other and with everyone else on this planet is a need to mutually protect one another’s individuality. All political systems thrive on collectivism, but liberty is dependent upon a shared love and respect for the inviolability of one another.

A Quote by David Spangler on world, time, heart, history, individuality, creativity, and love

At the heart of world time is the momentum of history. At the heart of personal time is the mystery and wonder of individuality. At the heart of deep, new time is the creative spirit. But at the heart of our time is love.

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on sex, individuality, fear, uniqueness, and sexuality

I think we are afraid of each other when it comes to sex, because we read so much about sex, we talk so openly about sex, we see movies and we read books; but when we are face to face with someone else, we forget our individual patterns; that we are unique. So we try to repeat other people’s patterns, according to what we seen and what we heard. So most of us are very frustrated, because we don’t accept our individuality as far as sex is concerned.

A Quote by Mikiya Katakura on maiden, confidence, and individuality

A maiden's lace is her steel. Her ribbons are chains. Her hat is her helmet, and she surreptitiously changes the blood that flows from her wounds into true rose petals.... You are a noble being that no one may touch... Yes, the ideal aristocratic maiden, in my imagination, is very much like you... Say, I can see wings on your back - wings, with the luster of velvet. Please keep flying freely, without fear.
