I have always loved quotations, but I am one of those people that forget them as soon as I have heard them. I was always quite annoyed at myself, as some of them were so poignant that I wanted to record them in my mental data bank.
So, when I set up my Quinlyn Nixon Art facebook page, I decided to put some of my favourite quotes on there on a regular basis; I thought they would provide interest to people visiting my page, but also remind me of the quotes that I held most dear. Some of the ones I have posted on my page include quotes from my favourite writers, C.S. Lewis and artists, Henri Matisse, as well as movie stars, such as Audrey Hepburn and Doris Day.
Some of the quotes were provided by my friend, Marie, who must have trawled the Internet looking for ones that would be both thought-provoking and profound. Some of my favourites are included on this page…but I think the one that I remember the most is by the American Politician, Eleanor Roosevelt.
Great minds discuss ideas.
Average minds discuss events.
Small minds discuss people.
Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962)
