Being Yourself Quotes

Being yourself may sound a tad bit cliche now with denims, hair color brands, sun glasses and nail polish advertisements betting big on this popular tag line so much so that the least thing you want to do now is to ‘be yourself’. Jokes apart, being yourself is just acting your own character and being comfortable in your skin. One must not duplicate or imitate other people’s personality. One’s personality is a projection of one’s own character. Everybody has a true character, and his or her personality should be the projection of that character. Read these quotes to get inspired.
