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)
