Eccentricity has always abounded when and where strength of character has abounded; and the amount of eccentricity in society has always been proportional to the amount of genius, mental vigor and moral courage which it contained. That so few [people] now dare to be eccentric marks the chief danger of our times. ~ John Stuart Mill
~As quoted by Alan Hirsch
Next time you wonder why I'm doing what I'm doing... now you know I'm just keeping our times safe from it's chiefest danger.
