The man who follows the crowd will usually get no further than the crowd. The man who walks alone is likely to find himself in places no one has ever been.

There is another interesting and lovely quote that conveys the same exact meaning as this one does and it goes like this, “A man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd”. That is to say that following the crowd leads you nowhere, and if you want to get somewhere no one has ever been before, or experience the inexperienced you should know that you are alone and that there is nobody walking next to you, or backing you. Go straight on, through your own path.
