Great Spirits....

This has been my favorite quote since high school. When asked back then what my favorite quote was, I replied

Great Spirits have always encountered the most violent opposition from mediocre minds.
- Albert Einstein

The person asking said "So..... I guess that means you think YOU'RE a Great Spirit?!" ( can you hear the all the meanness and sarcasm of high school?)

Being 17 and not yet secure in my own skin, I said nothing and didn't try to become a Great Spirit for a long, long time.

Still not there, but at least now I speak the words.

So true!!

That's an awesome quote!

Thank You! I carry it with me and it really IS true. People who try to tear down others who are dreaming big, are just not worth it!
