A crude statement, yet worth considering

‘Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, small minds discuss people.’ Eleanor Roosevelt

Why do you agree/disagree with these words?

      • The supposed gulf between ‘small minds’ and great ideas warrants closer inspection. I recall reading a book on the small-minded habits of ‘great’ philosophers. My point is that no-one is above small-mindedness. A woman I knew said to me that her husband said to her ‘Have a big spirit, Annie’. That, with bouts of small-mindedness is the best (in my view) we can hope for.
