“It is easy in the world to live after the world's opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of his own solitude.”

― Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

Maintaining the ability to recognise one’s voice in a world so entitled to expressing its opinion is an art in itself. Where the critically acclaimed writer such as Emerson is able to respect his own thoughts and feelings despite popular sentiment being against him, keeping cool is definitely his forte. It is this expression of confidence and salvation achieved by the utmost respect and love for one’s thoughts that places us in a world where we should appreciate the ability of being able to practice the art of higher beings. Even despite popular sentiment, it is Imran Khan’s ability to stick to his resolve and not pardon the Prime Minister for his indiscretions in his financial accounts, he should be respected for his relentlessly tenacious spirit.
