My dear,

Small minds talk about rumors they heard about their neighbors, rumors they heard about celebrities, and the goings on of other persons lives. Average minds talk about the happenings of the day, what the newspaper said that morning, the weather, and what war is being fought where. And great minds talk about the make-up of the universe, the forces which we yield to yet don’t see, the patterns of time, and of course life.

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

Maybe picking up that tabloid magazine and newspaper is not what you should be doing. Maybe you should be doing something greater.

Falsely yours,
Anna Eleanor Roosevelt
