Don't live by the opinions of others

“They’re certainly entitled to think that, and they’re entitled to full respect for their opinions… but before I can live with other folks I’ve got to live with myself. The one thing that doesn’t abide by majority rule is a person’s conscience.” ~Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird~

“The kind of beauty I want is the hard-to-get kind that comes from within… Strength, courage, dignity” ~Ruby Dee~
