One of my favourite quotes:
“Talk nonsense, but talk your own nonsense, and I’ll kiss you for it. To go wrong in one’s own way is better than to go right in someone else’s. In the first case you are a man, in the second you’re no better than a bird.” – Razumihin to Pulcheria Alexandrovna and Avdotya Romanovna in ‘Crime and Punishment’ by Fyodor Dostoevsky (p. 174 in Wordsworth classics edition)
