"Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry. Their passions a quotation."
Not to totally prove him right with irony, but I was just thinking this same exact thing. I swear I didn't know it was already a quote, but come on these days there is not much you can say or think that hasn't already been said or thought before.
I want my passions to stand on their own without a quotation surrounding. I would like if my thoughts were my own even though most likely, they were already somebody else's. And it would not hurt me if in the end of all ends someone were to say, "that Haley Stewart was truly her own person!" In present time to be original means you have to really be doing something nuts, yet that is all I hope for my life!
