(The following are a bunch of [sometimes long] quotes from Lemony Snicket, one of my all-time-favorite authors :-D! I'm just gonna group them together):
~If you try to avoid every instance of peer pressure you will end up without any peers whatsoever, and the trick is to succumb to enough pressure that you do not drive your peers away, but not so much that you end up in a situation in which you are dead or otherwise uncomfortable. This is a difficult trick, and most people never master it, and end up dead or uncomfortable at least once during their lives.~

~The thing you hope will never happen to you might just happen to someone else instead, who has been spending their life dreading the thing that will happen to you.~
~Having a personal philosophy is like having a pet marmoset, because it may be very attractive when you acquire it, but there may be situations when it will not come in handy at all.~ Lemony Snicket.
