" Et miraris

quod paucis placeo cui cum paucis convenit,
cui omnia fere aliter videntur ac vulgo,
a quo semper quod longissime abest id penitus rectum iter censeo."

(Petrarch, Epistolæ de Rebus Familiaribus, Book XIX, Letter 7.)

translation:

And you wonder that few men like me, even though I only get on with a few men — I who see almost everything differently from almost everyone, and who always consider the right approach to be the one that is as detached as possible from the crowd.
