10 Quotes from books that will remind you to embrace your uniqueness

Here are 10 quotes from literature that will remind you to embrace your uniqueness.

1. “But the fact of the matter was, every person on the planet was different from everyone else and it was stupid of me, or anyone else, to try to compare to another person. We were all different for a reason and we needed to learn to embrace our uniqueness. Too many people acted like ‘unique’ was a disease, when it was the only thing that made you, you.”
Micalea Smeltzer, Last to Know

2. “Our uniqueness alone is enough to justify our special place in the world. But even more, our destiny insists we use our gifts to show others who they really are or show them what, in an ideal world, they could become. It may shock them at first, but deep down, we open their eyes to greater possibilities.”
Ellen Bryson, The Transformation of Bartholomew Fortuno

3. “Whatever is different about you is what makes you amazing. Others will try to homogenize you for their own comfort level, because God forbid discomfort. Fuck that. Do not bend yourself to make others feel taller.”
Rose McGowan, Brave

4. “’Deviation’ or whatever you want to call it? That’s just another expression of it. You call it freakish. I call it incredible.”
Jay Kristoff, Lifel1k3

5. “Be yourself. An original is worth more than a copy.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem


6. “Be YOU. There is nothing sexier than someone who is confident enough to be themselves, quirks and all. It is often your unique nature that separates you from the crowd in the best way possible for your romantic match to notice you.”
Alaric Hutchinson, Living Peace

7. “The shape does not change. There was a human being who was born, lived, and then, by some means or another, died. There. you may fill in the details from your own experience. As unoriginal as any other tale, as unique as any other life. Lives are like snowflakes – forming patterns we have seen before, (…) but still unique.”
Neil Gaiman, American Gods

8. “In a wide, wide world, full of unimaginable numbers of people, I was—in addition to being small and insufficient—special.”
Hope Jahren, Lab Girl

― Jennifer DonnellyThese Shallow Graves
