The people who have contributed most to our lives and well being of our country have been the individualists, and you can start the list with Samuel Adams, who was considered somewhat of a crackpot by his countrymen . . . There will always be leaders— and the led. What this country can use—or in fact needs desperately —is more individualists, more characters in every level of endeavor. Bring on the characters, we say—and the more the better!—Louis E. Ball, Farmington Valley Herald
On developing individuality . . . Elementary teachers, especially, can appreciate what Goethe said: "Let none be like another; yet each be like the Highest, How can that be? Let each be perfectly himself."
Every wheel ought to turn on its own axle.
