Rachel, I love Camus here is another one

I've wanted to live according to everyone else's morals. I've forced myself to live like everyone else, to look like everyone else. I said what was necessary to join together, even when I felt separate. And after all of this, catastrophe came. Now I wander amid the debris, I am lawless, torn to pieces, alone and accepting to be so, resigned to my singularity and to my infirmities. And I must rebuild a truth - after having lived all my life in a sort of lie."

I don't feel I have lived my life as a lie but I do understand this quote, mainly on the pretense that we do try to fit in sometimes when we should always just be ourselves, and accept who we are.

"When a man points a finger at someone else, he should remember that four of his fingers are pointing at himself."
Louis Nizer

I love this quote because it has all the right ingredients for a good quote except one. Accuracy. Go on, try it. Point your finger and count how many are pointing at yourself. Nobody likes a smartarse but isn't it great when a smartarse fouls up? Nice to know we are all human :lol:

To be fair, the Tim Curry quote was really Richard O'Brien coming out of Tim Curry's mouth. Or was the quote Frank N Furter's?!
