Great quote

I'm reading this book at present. It's based on the principles of Marshall Rosenberg's Nonviolent Communication. I wanted to share this excellent quote from the book, which seems very relevant to us as homeschooling parents:

"The hardest battle is to be nobody but yourself in a world that is doing its best, night and day, to make you like everybody else."

e e cummings

I have adopted it as my signature quote on my email messages!

I think it is so important to be yourself, I try to be nobody but myself and if people don't like who you are, then they can go and find someone else to annoy!
