Quote of the Day (E.E. Cummings, on Why ‘Nobody Else Can Be Alive for You’)

"Remember one thing only: that it's you—nobody else—who determines your destiny and decides your fate. Nobody else can be alive for you; nor can you be alive for anybody else. Toms can be Dicks and Dicks can be Harrys, but none of them can ever be you. "— American poet E.E. Cummings (1894-1962), I: Six Nonlectures (1953)
