"Each of us needs something of an island in his life—if not an actual island, at least some place, or space in time, in which to be himself, free to cultivate his difference from others." ― John C. Keats, Of Time and an Island
"It is now certain that the public does know. It is not so certain that the public does care."
― G.K. Chesterton, Autobiography

But now I do. You are not different in the way difference is acceptable but in another, bigger way." ― David Adams Richards, Mercy Among the Children
