“Great people talk about ideas. Average people talk about things. Small people talk about other people.”
I saw this quote in a Thai restaurant once. (I was waiting for my drunken noodles.)
It’s a popular quote, but I had never heard it before. I can’t find the author, but it originates from this Eleanor Roosevelt quote:
Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.
Anyhow, I thought it was a great one. Something to discuss, even.
Someone just wrote on my facebook,
“Perhaps we are all Great, Average, and Small at the same time since we all talk way too much.”
I like that quote too. Happy Monday!
