Transcendentalism
Confidence
Self-Reliance
Nonconformity
"No one can make this better. Take control, it's now or never."
“Trust thyself; every heart vibrates to that iron string”
Self-Reliance by Ralph Waldo Emerson
People do not need to understand you
Greatness comes from self-belief
Approval not required
"It has not the vitality and force of a single living man; for a single man can bend it to his will."
Civil Disobedience by Henry David Thoreau
Man is greater than government
Whatever government does, man does better
“There is a time in every man’s education when he arrives at the conviction that envy is ignorance; that imitation is suicide; that he must take himself for better, for worse, as his portion . . .”
Sick of It by Skillet
Only you can fix it
Rely on yourself, not others
"To be great is to be misunderstood."
Self-Reliance by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Being others is sinful
Better to be yourself
You can do more by yourself
"I can't be tamed, I can't be tamed, I can't be blamed."
Self-Reliance by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Everyone can do things on their own
Success without outside opinion
Believe in what you can do
"I think that we should be men first, and subjects afterward."
Civil Disobedience by Henry David Thoreau
Rely on ourselves to take care of things
Better chance of sustaining man
Do not need to follow government
Can succeed without it
Self-Reliance by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Your own mind, not the mind of others, is sacred and important
Don't listen to society but think on your own
"A minority is powerless while it conforms to the majority; it is not even a minority then; but it is irresistible when it clogs by its whole weight."
Civil Disobedience by Henry David Thoreau
One becomes an individual when they have their own beliefs
If you are sharing a belief with others, then you are still conforming, regardless of the number of people
"You're not the only one refusing to back down. You're not the only one, so get up. Let's start a riot, a riot."
Riot by Three Days Grace
Ignore society's directions
Rioting against the system
By Nick Ekanger & KC Cowan
"Nothing is at last sacred but the integrity of my own mind."
