Philosophical Friday: quote to ponder

A new idea is delicate. It can be killed by a sneer or a yawn; it can be stabbed to death by a quip and worried to death by a frown on the right man's brow.

Ovid-- Roman poet and author of Metamorphoses


  1. Oh, I agree with this very much, and often will only share an idea with those I know will not sneer or yawn at it.

  2. Yep, I have to be careful to keep a neutral face with my hubby and kiddo. Hate to destroy a good idea just because I may not immediately like it.
