If you cannot mould yourself entirely as you would wish, how can you expect other people to be entirely to your liking?
Thomas a Kempis

No faction is better or worse than any other. All come from the same mould; they are all products of capitalist influence in the working class movement. And they are a poison that destroys our Party and the working class movement in Korea.
Kim Jong Il
If he who employs coercion against me could mould me to his purposes by argument, no doubt he would. He pretends to punish me because his argument is strong; but he really punishes me because his argument is weak.

If I didn't mould my reality then I'd still be in the ghetto where people like me are supposed to stay. You have to dream your way out of the nightmare.
What was any art but a mould in which to imprison for a moment the shining elusive element which is life itself - life hurrying past us and running away, too strong to stop, too sweet to lose.
If you are cast in a different mould to the majority, it is no merit of yours: Nature did it.
It has always been my practice to cast a long paragraph in a single mould, to try it by my ear, to deposit it in my memory, but to suspend the action of the pen till I had given the last polish to my work.

Henry David Thoreau

J. J. Abrams
I always thought models had to fit a certain mould. I never thought I had what it takes. I'm too small and my look's pretty weird.

I don't like the idea of fitting into a mould so as to conform. What I like is the danger, the difference - being unpredictable.
