Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
~ Dr. Seuss (March 02, 1904 - September 24, 1991)
What is meant here by saying that existence precedes essence? It means that first of all, man exists, turns up, appears on the scene, and, only afterwards, defines himself. ... Not only is man what he conceives himself to be, but he is also only what he wills himself to be after this thrust toward existence.Man is nothing else but what he makes of himself.
~ Jean-Paul Sartre (June 21, 1905 - April 15, 1980)
