Nature of Individuality.

Extracts from this document...


Nature of Individuality Admit it. We're all different. We're different in so many ways it's impossible to count them, it's like counting the number of hairs we have on our head.

To conclude everything I've said, I quote from Robert Orben, an author and editor, "A graduation ceremony is an event where the commencement speaker tells thousands of students dressed in identical caps and gowns that 'individuality' is the key to success." - Robert Orben (1927-____) ...read more.
