when you choose truth, you sometimes need to walk away from the crowd just to remind yourself what is truth. but then, head back to the crowd and stay awake. the crowd needs you to show them the truth.
It is easy in the world to live after the world’s opinions; it is easy in solitude to live after your own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude. -Ralph W. Emerson
