Dave Matthews and Conformity: I feel like an Ant sometimes

Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds performing Ants Marching - They all do it the same way!!! (At the bottom, silly.)

Conformity is the death of originality. It may be an original - the link is to non-conformity quotes listed below:

That so few now dare to be eccentric, marks the chief danger of the time.John Stuart Mill, On Liberty

Individuality realized is the supreme attainment of the human soul, the master-master’s work of art. Individuality is sacred.Frank Lloyd Wright, architect

They will say you are on the wrong road, if it is your own. –Antonio Porchia

If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.Henry David Thoreau, Walden

I like him. I have a weakness for losers. Invalids, foreigners, the fat boy of the class, the ones nobody ever wants to dance with. My heart beats for them. Maybe because I’ve always known that in some way I will forever be one of them.Peter Høeg, Smilla’s Sense of Snow

My darling girl, when are you going to understand that “normal” isn’t a virtue? It rather denotes a lack of courage.Stockard Channing, in Practical Magic

The most beautiful art in the world is the art which is freest from the demands of convention.Robert Henri

Whenever you find that you are on the side of the majority, it is time to reform.Mark Twain, Notebook

Strongest minds are often those of whom the noisy world hears last.William Wordsworth, “The Excursion”

New opinions are always suspected, and usually opposed, without any other reason but because they are not common.John Locke, An Essay Concerning Human Understanding

You don’t get harmony when everybody sings the same note.Doug Floyd

From childhood’s hour I have not been

As others were—I have not seen

As others saw.–Edgar Allan Poe, “Alone”

Here it tis!
