Illness has been plaguing me for the last 2 months, but I am publishing a very short Gaius from back in December 2011 (a month before I started a Gaius Facebook page…)
Take heart, for the world has never been radically shaped by ‘ordinary’ people.
“To accomplish ‘extraordinary’ things, people need to stop being ‘ordinary’. The desire to be ‘normal’ and the innate need, felt by so many, to conform to peer, media and social pressures, turns the majority of people away from their true potential and makes them ‘ordinary’ themselves – dragging many of them into drudgery, disappointment, sadness, despair, and dependence on living their lives through watching others live artificial ones.
‘Ordinary’ people can never break free from the mundane, the acquiescent, the servile. It takes ‘extraordinary’ people to change the world and make exciting things happen – new, special, and innovative things.
To truly find your place in life, develop your mind, listen to your heart, act with kindness and care to those around you, and be the different person you were always meant to be. Be ‘extraordinary’, and be all the happier for it!” ~ Gaius Quinterus
