Your Own Two Feet: A Quote by Sidney Lumet


Everything conspires to crush your individuality. ~Sidney Lumet, American Film Director (1924 – 2011)


I watched the re-airing of PBS’s American Masters program entitled “By Sidney Lumet”. At one point in the documentary Sidney Lumet said the above quote. He went on to say that it’s a life-long struggle to be an individual–to express one’s true self.

What do you think about that quote? Do you think the world is trying to fit each of us into its mold? Have you ever felt this pressure?
