STOP AND THINK – [The creative individual] is capable of questioning the assumptions that the rest of us accept. (John W. Gardner, former Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare)

Gardner also says, “[He] has the capacity to free himself from the web of social pressures in which the rest of us are caught.” He is arguing that most of us are not as creative as we might be so we give in to the influences or our society and culture. Can that be true? If so, we need to exercise our ability to think for ourselves and the willpower to strike out on our own.

Do not lie to each other
