This is not quite right. There is a writer who uses the name of “Elle Lothlorien” (the surname of which is from J.R.R.

Btw, I just found a song lyrics that says "Always be yourself. If you can be a unicorn, then always be a unicorn."
In this case, I can, for sure, grasp the meaning, but I can't still figure out what the quote above exactly means..

Be yourself, but if you can metaphorically be a unicorn, assume that aspect of yourself.
