“To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.”

Or the short version:
“It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.”
Both, e. e. cummings.

Or the one I like best:
"Be yourself, everyone else is already taken."
Oscar Wilde

Towboater- that was Baxter Black, the Cowboy Poet Laureate of Colorado and Large Animal Vet. He also said "Drink upstream from the herd" and my favorite- "I'd rather have an honest man's word than a crooked man's signature.".

Do the thing you fear and the death of fear is certain.

Ah! Thank you for the clarification. I had a book years ago with a bunch, just couldn't remember the name.
