H. G. Wells: The country of the blind

I heard about this novel in one of the recorded speeches of Andras Feldmar, a psychiatrist of Hungarian origin living in Canada. The message of this writing seems to be really interesting and thought-evoking, the main question is about normality and norms in general. If you realize that you live/want to choose an other truth than others how is it possible to make them accept it without wanting them to drag you back to their standards and not to consider you as a crazy and dangerous person?

 You can read the complete novel here:

Some H. G. Wells quotes:

“Sometimes, you have to step outside of the person you've been and remember the person you were meant to be. The person you want to be. The person you are.” 
― H.G. Wells

“It is possible to believe that all the past is but the beginning of a beginning, and that all that is and has been is but the twilight of the dawn. It is possible to believe that all the human mind has ever accomplished is but the dream before the awakening.” 
― H.G. Wells

“Losing your way on a journey is unfortunate. But, losing your reason for the journey is a fate more cruel.” 
― H.G. Wells

“There's truths you have to grow into.” 
― H.G. WellsLove and Mr. Lewisham

“Find the thing you want to do most intensely, make sure that’s it, and do it with all your might. If you live, well and good. If you die, well and good. Your purpose is done” 
― H.G. Wells
