In Memory: “Conformity is evil when it distorts, flattens, and erases fruitful ways, strong ideas, natural identities; it is evil when it is a steamroller.”

Art of Quotation

“Human life cannot be formless. We live by patterns. We move in comradeships.

Conformity is evil when it distorts, flattens, and erases fruitful ways, strong ideas, natural identities; it is evil when it is a steamroller.

But a man cannot escape being part of a milieu – and a recognizable part – unless he flees naked to a cave, never to return.

The sensible thing is to use hard thinking to find the right way to live and then to live that way. What matters is living with dignity, with decency, and without fear.”

Herman Wouk, writer, 1915-2019, book quote from This is My God, 1959
