“Born To Be Wild”

~ Steppenwolf

“The decision to become an individual, to allow oneself to be moved by the deepest impulses of the self rather than the social consensus, can only be made with fear and trembling. It is, by definition, a lonely decision. It necessarily involves anxiety and self-doubt. At first it will seem awkward, embarrassing, unnatural, and will require a high degree of painful self-consciousness. One will stumble and fall often. Frequently, the path will disappear into the brambles. The outlaw will often wonder whether asserting the right to know, to taste, to experience, to judge is not an act of arrogance. The individual’s way always is an unbeaten path… The trans-moral conscience of the outlaw is the inner voice of a universal community that is struggling to be born.”
