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

Eleanor Roosevelt


A person with a new idea is a crank until the idea succeeds.

Mark Twain


We came to realise - first with astonishment, then bitterness, and finally with indifference - that intellect apparently wasn't the most important thing... not ideas, but the system; not freedom, but drill. We had joined up with enthusiasm and with good will; but they did everything to knock that out of us.

Erich Maria Remarque, "All Quiet On The Western Front"
