Be, act & think different: by your own

Rouzat Zissou (1911)

Last night, while reading a text on Habermas by Egon Flaig, I bumped into a quote –describing the German Volksgeist– which immediately made it to my new favorite quote and sort of life motto:

"Nicht tun dürfen, was andere tun;
tun müssen, was die anderen nicht tun."

Roughly translated as:

"Not allowed to do, what others do; have to do, what the others do not do."

I take it that the quotation could have been done by today deceased genius, Steve Jobs, or by Jacques Henri Lartigue, who took the upper picture.
