One of English author Neil Gaiman’s most successful works is his “Sandman” graphic novel series that follows a group of seven gods who Gaiman refers to as the “Endless.” In the fifth instalment of this series, titled “A Game of You,” Gaiman writes about the complexity inherent in each person’s individuality. In the excerpt below, Gaiman smartly describes how vast a person’s subjectivity really is, and the quote is an inspiring reminder that we are all so much more than what is visible on the surface:

“Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people of the world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside them they’ve got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds. Thousands maybe.”
