Be your qualities, none more, and let each reach into the others. Be like a lemon:
The lemon is extended throughout its qualities, and each of its qualities is extended throughout each of the others. It is the sourness of the lemon which is yellow, it is the yellow of the lemon which is sour.
(Jean-Paul Sartre is quoted from page 14 of The Philosophy of Time, by Roger McLure. Routledge, 2005.)
