"Identity is fluid because it changes according to the social context of the individual. Just as identity defines relationships, the nature of the set of social interactions in a person's life is what makes up that person's identity. Personal identity is composed essentially of social routines and protocols rather than personal characteristics. The question "who am I?" is answered ultimately not by looking within, but by taking into account the facts of relationships and actions."
"A musician must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write, if he is to be ultimately at peace with himself."
"It's not who I am underneath, but what I *do* that defines me."
