Nonconformists, we are, unsolicited, unpredictable, unencumbered, unvested, daring and iconoclastic but not for the sake of destructive ruins but construction toward a better truth, a substantial truth, and innovation. Too much of independence of the nonconformists of unique mind is considered unfitting to the establishment of existing norms and institutions because they cannot be useful functionaries for social reinforcement. Yet, poetic outcasts are reframing the stretch of imagination toward metaphysical beauty and permanence?the greatness. We deliberately detach ourselves from the exasperations and desperations of the moment of mankind. We find it particularly useful to have a burning heart and causes for misgivings and finality?to fill the unlistening void and to chastise a comfortable livelihood.

Resistance is dauntless audacity of the lesser against

Resistance is dauntless audacity of the lesser against the greater through a will to suffering?the essential quality of existing?because suffering most clearly evinces the will-power of the sufferer. History is the story of ?I? as observed and evaluated by ?me.? When the history is written by my hands, I will fear nothing and live as if I am the history.
