I am remembering something my Father said long ago, he told me to never gossip, he said it was small of me, and believed that our IQ went down every time you did it. I of course, did not listen to him.
As a headstrong teenager, I wasn’t exactly thinking what I was doing was wrong, you just get sucked into it. Then at some point, you realize that every conversation you have is about others, not about events, books, traveling, or even dreams. Then it hit me, what my Father meant, you just become small.
So, these 2 quotes remind me everyday to be a great mind.
