Here's another Albert Einstein quote: "Everyone should be respected as an individual, but no one idolized."
As a teenager the desire to fit in often strips away that which makes you unique. It's hard to "Just be yourself" if your peers are mocking you for (in their eyes) being "different."
In those times you need to step back and think "I'm okay. The Slipper Lobster Larva, now that creature is different!"
Lobster larva is on display in the National Museum of American History in Washington, DC.
