“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.”
~E. E. Cummings

Something to think about from a book by Guy Murchie:
You have at least a million relatives as close as tenth cousin, and no one on Earth is any further removed than your fiftieth cousin.
With each breath, you take into your body 10 sextillion atoms, and—owing to the wind’s ceaseless circulation— over a year’s time you have intimate relations with oxygen molecules exhaled by every person alive, as well as by everyone who ever lived.
Right now you may be carrying atoms that were once inside the lungs of Malcolm X, Christopher Columbus, Joan of Arc, and Cleopatra. (Source: Guy Murchie, The Seven Mysteries of Life)
