My Favorite Quote of All Time

Standard

“It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain an idea without adopting it” Aristotle.

This is one of the ideals I try to live by. I will listen to others’ ideas and opinions and consider them but I always stay true to myself. I believe in sharing our thoughts and giving everyone a chance to have their own say. I recognize that we may sometimes have to agree to disagree. That’s the best way to handle differing opinions. I might even like your idea and adopt it- but it’ll be my decision and I’ll give anyone the same courtesy. Never, never try to impose your own will on another person. (unless it’s your minor kid and you don’t want him or her to behave like a heathen!- LOL! and even then, let them be their own person).
