Question/Topic: Different drummer 
Answer/Pointer: The phrase is from Henry David Thoreau's Walden, in the "Conclusion" chapter. Most editions: 818.31 Tho "Why should we be in such desperate haste to succeed, and in such desperate enterprises? If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away."
