Famous Words

“Great minds discuss ideas; Average minds discuss events; Small minds discuss people” – Eleanor Roosevelt

US diplomat & reformer (1884 – 1962) more quotes can be found here

This quote has stuck with me since I first read it in 2008. Whenever I find myself discussing people, I think of this quote and instantly stop. I don’t believe I have a small mind so why should I act like I do?

Last night was a perfect example of me maximising my mind and discussing ideas with various friends. I went home last night feeling extremely happy, with so many new things to think about. I am surrounded by so many smart people that are constantly expanding my knowledge, it’s a good feeling.

Inspire to have a great mind.

  1. I always think of that quote you said to me once: “Those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind”. This quote is very good too and I’ll definitely be remembering it.
