"Be not conformed to this world: but be transformed by the renewing of your mind." - Romans 12:2a
"'Do not conform' is difficult advice in a generation when crowd pressures have unconsciously conditioned our minds and feet to move to the rhythmic drumbeat of the status quo...
Success, recognition, and conformity are the bywords of the modern world...."
- Martin Luther King, Jr.(*)
