QOTD: Topic – Individuality (by G. Carlin)

Published February 24, 2015 by lynn k scott

I will premise today’s quote by stating that George Carlin, in my opinion, was one of the world’s truly great thinkers.  While he didn’t win a Nobel prize or find a cure to a disease, he taught people to think.  He was upfront, direct and truly made you wonder about what he was saying.  He was able to combine his unique perspectives and deliver them through comedy.  To me, that’s talent.  R.I.P. George.

“I don’t like ass kissers, flag wavers or team players. I like people who buck the system. Individualists. I often warn people: “Somewhere along the way, someone is going to tell you, ‘There is no “I” in team.’ What you should tell them is, ‘Maybe not. But there is an “I” in independence, individuality and integrity.'” Avoid teams at all cost. Keep your circle small. Never join a group that has a name. If they say, “We’re the So-and-Sos,” take a walk. And if, somehow, you must join, if it’s unavoidable, such as a union or a trade association, go ahead and join. But don’t participate; it will be your death. And if they tell you you’re not a team player, congratulate them on being observant.” (by George Carlin)
