Quote of the Day: Great Minds

“Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.”

Eleanor Roosevelt

Anna Eleanor Roosevelt was the first lady of the United States from 1933 to 1945 but is best remembered for her work championing human rights. This quote is somewhat self-explanatory but it is probably more relevant today than at any other time in history. When was the last time you discussed a concept? Turn on your phone, your tablet, PC, or TV and the news comes to you about events and people and covers the “what”, “when”, “how”, and “who” but with little reference to the “why”! Worse still, if your diet of news comes from the social media feeds of TikTok, Snapchat, Instagram, or Facebook then it is unlikely your mind has banqueted on wisdom.

  1. Eleanor Roosevelt’s quote is a reminder that it’s important to engage in meaningful conversations and to seek out knowledge and understanding. Discussing ideas can help us to expand our perspectives and to learn from others. It’s easy to get caught up in discussing events and people, especially with the constant flow of news and information available today.

  2. I used to like talking about different aspects of technology and what advancements would be made in a particular area.

    I now write poetry about my internal processes and what my emotions are saying, only cause i find it hard to speak them.

    I now know that when i was young I thought of a great future for the world, now that i am middle aged i realised i needed to know what I thought about myself and how i do things so i can help my 2 high need’s children communicate with the world.
