Hand-Lettered Quotations: Day 4

by Grace Bonney

Quote 4 - Herman Melville
This morning’s quotation, hand-lettered by Chandan Mahimkar, speaks to the struggle of striving for originality above all else. In an online world where it’s easy to fall into ruts and patterns inspired by general trends we’re all seeing, it’s important to remember the value of staying true to your own ideas, even if they don’t all work out the way we’d like. We all know how challenging it can be to follow our instincts, and hopefully this will be a little bit of mid-week motivation to stay the course and listen to what makes us each unique and special. xo, grace
