Wearing Masks

Kathmandu, Nepal
To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting. e.e. cummings 1955


  1. e.e. cummings has an unusual way of thinking. But this quote rings especially true.

  2. i really admire e.e. cummings and this is the first time i've read these words of his.
    i remember being in high school and experiencing the awareness of this. it was a difficult time because i so badly wanted accptance but then i wanted so badly to be myself. i see my own children and students suffering through this very challenge. there's so little i can do other than encourage them and wish them strength. steven
