Imitation is a Crime

“Each person is born with a unique individuality, and each person has a destiny of his or her own. Imitation is crime, it is criminal. If you try to become someone else, you may look like him, you may walk like him, you may talk like him, but you will miss. You will miss all that life was ready to deliver to you. Each individual happens only once. It is not in the nature of things to repeat. Existence is so creative that it never repeats anything. You cannot find another human being in the present, in the past, or in the future who is going to resemble you exactly. It has never happened, and never will. The human being is not like a car coming off of an assembly line. Your only task is to be the best you that you were meant to be.” – Adapted from “The Book of Understanding” by Osho
