One: as individuals, we step out of the fear of what other people think of us because that is the prison that most people live in. And once you're in the fear of what someone else thinks, you are not living YOUR life in YOUR truth; you are living someone else's version of what they think you should be. In other words, you're in the herd now. If we step out of the fear of what other people think, as individuals, and say, to use the title of one of my books, I Am Me, I Am Free, and if you don't like it, that's fine-you have a right not to like it-but this is me! At that point we cease to be a sheep. And if enough of us do it, we cease to be a herd of sheep.
a chip butty! (chips=fries (but nice fat juicy ones- not those crap skinny crunchy things) , butty=sandwich)
i add chilli sauce +mayonnaise (possibly cheese too)
The recipe of a work of art - its ingedients - how to make it - the formula
1.There must be a clear preoccupation with death - intimations of morality - Tragic art, romantic art, etc., deals with the knowledge of death.
2.Sensuality. Our basis of being concrete about the world. It is a lustful relationship to things that exist.
3.Tension. Either conflict or curbed desire.
4.Irony. This is a modern ingedient - the self-effacement and examination by which a man for an instant can go on to something else.
5.Wit and play ... for the human element.
6.The ephemeral and chance ... for the human element.
7.Hope. 10% to make the tragic concept more endurable.
I measure these ingedients very carefully when i paint a picture. It is always the form that follows these elements and the picture results from the proportions of these elements.
-Mark Rothko, Address to Pratt Institute, 1958
am i the only one on here who grew up on a sheep ranch?
why is everyone always picking on sheep
There is no me. I is a construct.
this is potentially fine advice, the type i hear in a lot of self help books.
the only problem with this is that there are consequences to distancing yourself from the herd ... and some people might just not be able to handle these consequences. in this case they are better off being proverbial sheep, i think. this i dont hear so much everywhere. but its the truth.

apparently it's real and tried to hide deeper in the crack as the picture was taken

failed to make a statment about uprising minorities that "stepped out of the herd" to claim the rights they deserve, threw in oliver twist for good measure and because i saw the film the other day.
but therein lies the paradox. in order for an individual to truly, physically have "rights" (which is a tricky term, and the use of term "rights" all by its lonesome is very ambiguous) he must step up and claim them by taking the responsibility of enforcing said "rights" against those who would violate them. has nothing to do with minorities at all.
the natural world accords to the rules of right is might. humanity has spent its modern existence trying to fix this. but it is an indifferent natural law. the only "right" that all humans absolutely materially own is the right to death. all others must be enforced whether by the might of the group or *herd* (the modern method of government) or by his sole will (almost unheard of in its purest form). once again, nothing to do with race, this is equal to all humans.
charles dickens is the man, btw
I'd have to disagree with the notion that there is only one recipe to freeing ones' self from a commonplace status. Breaking barriers is but one extreme. Most who choose the safety of conformity are just indifferent and/or in denial of their true circumstance,now more so than ever.
I'd generalise it a bit more and say that the path to the extraordinary is as simple as knowing all of your options in life and taking action on the most responsible choices, even if these choices go against the local law, rational thought or personal fears.
