Turn the Beat Around

A bit of worldly wisdom has been floating around my head of late.

“Small minds talk about people. Mediocre minds talk about events. Great minds
talk about ideas.”

It’s basically a proverb against gossip and pointless debate, and it’s good so far
as it goes. It’s occurred to me, though, that too much emphasis is placed on ideas.
I offer this alternative.

“Small hearts discuss ideas. Mediocre hearts participate in events. Great hearts
care for people.”
