“Unique vs. Weird: one of many questions of perception. One represents value and the other a lack of such. Which one are you going to accept? Which one are you going to call yourself?” – @nuatwhodis

“Weird is wonderful. And it’s bankable too. You know who’s weird? Astronauts. Saints. Nobel Prize winners. Scientists. People with hobbies you’ve never heard of or are afraid to try. People who speak their minds. People with both problems and (gasp) solutions. People who are (enviably) not like you. Being weird means being noticeably different. It means being or doing something that makes other people stare, or laugh, applaud, or boo. And it’s something we all need to cultivate.” – Jessica Hagy
