The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Coco Chanel
What do we say about masters? “They’re one of a kind.” There’s never been a Steve Jobs ever before. There’s never been a Warren Buffett. There’s never been an Albert Einstein. They’re unique. They embraced what made them different. Yes, it comes with some pain. With my books, particularly The 48 Laws of Power, you might hate it, you might think it’s satanic, but I can guarantee you’ve never read or seen a book that looks like it. The sections I created, the opening paragraphs, the quotes on the sides, the shapes—the book reflects me and my weirdness. The publisher was
frightened by it. They wanted a more conventional book. And I said, “No. I know I’ve never published anything before, but I’m sticking to what I have here.” I stuck to what was weird and strange about me.
Daily Law: Always stick to what makes you weird, odd, strange, different. That’s your source of power.
