Thursday: Smart?

Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people.
-- Unknown

This quote appealed to me for many reasons.

I'm tired of hearing about Paris Hilton; that's where the "small minds discuss people" part came in.

I certainly need my time to discuss people and have, in fact, been known to gossip about celebrities, friends, and co-workers with the best of them. But, I also really find myself craving intelligent conversation. I need to talk about smart ideas, important ideas, possibilities.

Amen sista! All the Paris stuff is really getting to me! I want to thank your "great minds" here at FWFS for enlightening me everyday!

Thanks for sharing the article, Beth. I'm currently all wrapped in up in thinking that we don't challenge students enough. And in a lot of cases (but certainly not all!), teachers don't challenge themselves enough either!
