I love that the majority of the quotes he references are from the Stoics. (thestoiclife.org)


"if you have an earnest desire of attaining wisdom, prepare to be laughed at by the multitude, to hear them say,'He does not covet what we covet, or seek what we hasten after and pursue, but he stands apart'Do not mind such rejection, but keep steadily to those things that appear best to you..."

Or to put it simply: don't be a sheep, being part of the herd is not important because,'it is hard to soar like a eagle, when your surrounded by turkeys'.
