Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people. ~Eleanor Roosevelt
I have learned from Parisha Taylor an excellent practice: to speak about someone only when they are present to speak for themselves. So no gossip. I have also learned that the events of the day, especially those covered by the media are merely part of the “illusion” or “movie” that clouds what our life is really about. My highest purpose as relates to others is to be of service and when we speak, to speak of ideas and principles that we can then put into action and service.
