The next time you find yourself gossiping about someone, or getting sucked into a reality television program, or letting destructive thoughts about that so-and-so invade your good humour, remember these words from Eleanor Roosevelt.

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

Rise above it all. The air’s nicer up there. Easier said than done of course, but you gotta keep trying, keep pushing.
