*new graphic for quotable Sunday thanks to my awesome friend Amy from Coffee With The Mrs. Hooray thank you Amy!

Welcome to Quotable Sunday!

I hope you have all had a wonderful week. If you are just joining us here is what we do:

~ On your blog post a post with one or more of your favorite quotes in it.
~ Grab the link of your post and head back here to put it in Mr. Linky
~ Check back throughout the day to read the other quoters and leave them some comment love.

Now onto my quotes, today they are about conformity:

Most people are more comfortable with old problems than with new solutions. ~Author Unknown
~ I figure fix what is broken and don’t keep breaking it just to get attention, move on.

The reward for conformity was that everyone liked you except yourself. ~Rita Mae Brown, Venus Envy
~ What good is it to be liked by many or by the big shots if you can’t even like yourself.


Read, every day, something no one else is reading. Think, every day, something no one else is thinking. Do, every day, something no one else would be silly enough to do. It is bad for the mind to continually be part of unanimity. ~Christopher Morley

~ In other words, and this seems to be a hard mentality for most to follow, BE AN INDIVIDUAL and think for your freaking self sometime ๐Ÿ™‚

Labels are for filing. Labels are for clothing. Labels are not for people. ~Martina Navratilova
~ Why do we label people? What good does it do us really? And don’t always trust what others “label” someone because then you could be missing out on a really good person!

You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life. ~Winston Churchill

~ You see there is always a reason for the haters!

Be neither a conformist or a rebel, for they are really the same thing. Find your own path, and stay on it. ~Paul Vixie

~In other make your own mark quit relying on someone else to make it for you!

It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation. ~Herman Melville
~’Nough Said!

Conformity

Now leave the link to your quote post and I will be around to check them out throughout the day:

    There is so much truth in each and everyone of these quotes. Excellent choices Toni. My absolute favourite quote is:
    "Read, every day, something no one else is reading. Think, every day, something no one else is thinking. Do, every day, something no one else would be silly enough to do. It is bad for the mind to continually be part of unanimity."
