We can write and blog and think and talk about people, but if we find ourselves curious about ideas, we’ll have so much more to share.
Madame Curie’s quote reminds me of a similar one from Eleanor Roosevelt, who said (bonus quote!), “Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.”
“Be less curious about people and more curious about ideas.”
— Marie Curie
