"To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you someone else is the greatest accomplishment." - Ralph Waldo Emerson



            You are you! Never change yourself; there's no need
           
          Not even your flaws, my friend. Never change your ways
              
              The stain in your personality stays the way it stays

Even if you scrub it with soap and wire brush, until your fingers bleed!
