“Everybody has got to figure out experience for himself. I’m sorry. I realize that most people require externalized, objective symbols to hang on to. That’s too bad. Because what they are looking for, whether they know it or not, is internalized and subjective, there are no group solutions! Each individual must work it out for himself. There are guides, all right, but even the wisest guides are blind in your section of the burrow. No, all a person can do in this life is to gather about his integrity, his imagination, and his individuality-and with these ever with him, out front and in sharp focus, leap into the dance of experience.

be your own master!

be your own Jesus!

be your own flying saucer! Rescue yourself.

be your own valentine! Free the heart!”
