Wishing and trying to be like someone else, is like attempting to live someone else's life. Oh! yes, whenever you copy or imitate anyone right here or out there, you are indirectly and unknowingly devaluing yourself and limiting your God-given potential or talents. In case you don't know. Every human was created or made differently and never collectively. And that infers, each and everyone of us is unique and wonderfully made by almighty God.

Above all, you will end up making a remarkable difference in this world. You can take my words for it.

With a new familiarity and a flesh-creeping homeliness entirely of this unreal, materialistic world, where all sentiment is coarsely manufactured and advertised in colossal sickly captions, disguised for the sweet tooth of a monstrous baby called the Public, the family as it is, broken up on all hands by the agency of feminist and economic propaganda, reconstitutes itself in the image of the state.
