Precisely because the tyranny
of opinion is such as to make
eccentricity a reproach, it is
desirable, in order to break
through the tyranny, that
people should be eccentric
Eccentricity has always
abounded when and where
strength of character has
abounded: and the amount of
eccentricity in a society has
generally been proportional to
the amount of genius, mental
vigor, and moral courage it
contained. That so few dare
to be eccentric marks the chief
danger of the time.

John Stuart Mill On Liberty 1859
