Being Different Quotes

All people - African, European, American - worry about being different. But I've learned that the traits we'd rush to get rid of are the very ones that others desire.

Just as people can watch spellbound a circus artist tumbling through the air in a phosphorized costume, so they can listen to a preacher who uses the Word of God to draw attention to himself.
