Hello everyone !
Just as I was contemplating the topic for our next MeetUp, Shabbir sent me a lovely quote from Eleanor Roosevelt, which I think would make a great start to initiate a discussion about 'gossiping'. What is so fascinating about talking about others ? Do we form bonds through sharing information about others ? Do we get a feeling of 'belonging' to a certain group of people ? Does it make us feel important ?
Here is the quote: “A great mind discusses ideas; an average mind discusses events; a poor mind discusses others.”
And reading this quote reminded me of another one I like (don't know who said it...)
"Gossip need not be false to be evil. There's a lot of truth that should not be passed around"
So, discussing the 'idea' of gossip should make our minds great, what do you think ?
