“No price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.”

“The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.”

— Rudyard Kipling

This quote is often mistakenly attributed to Friedrich Nietzsche.  Kipling said it in a 1935 interview with Reader’s Digest.
