“It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.” — Aristotle

If you don’t ever read, watch, or do anything that challenges you or makes you uncomfortable, you aren’t growing, you’re simply maintaining the status quo.

If all you do is surround yourself with people that think, look, and act exactly like you do, you’re willfully putting limits on what you are capable of learning, experiencing, and seeing in the world.

If you live in such a way that it inconveniences others who cross your path or condemns those who think or act differently than you do, this isn’t “living life to the fullest”, meeting one’s fullest potential, or adding value to the world.

Quite the contrary. It’s exemplifying ignorance & intolerance and stunting one’s growth.

Minds are like parachutes. They serve their purpose best when they’re open and being used.

“The world is full of people who have never, since childhood, met an open doorway with an open mind.” — E.B. White
