Don’t Let Failure Become Your Style

Wise words from the stately homo of England, Quentin Crisp:

“What would you be like if there was nobody else in the world? 

Who would you be if the only opinion that mattered was yours? 

Because if you want to be truly happy you must be that person. 

You must search inside yourself for what is uniquely you. 

When you find it, polish it until it becomes your style. 

It’s no good being a pig farmer for 30 years looking back and saying ‘I was meant to be a ballet dancer’, by that time pigs are your style.” 

-Quentin Crisp
