Tactfully Unconventional


................................................................................................................................................................................


Conventional people are roused to fury by departures from convention, largely because they regard such departures as a criticism of themselves.

They will pardon much unconventionality in a man who has enough jollity and friendliness to make it clear, even to the stupidest, that he is not engaged in criticising them.

[Bertrand Russell]
The Conquest of Happiness, p.89
