Small minds are much distressed by little things. Great minds see them all but are not upset by them.
Francois de Fenelon
Whenever, therefore, people are deceived and form opinions wide of the truth, it is clear that the error has slid into their minds through the medium of certain resemblances to that truth.
Our intellect is not the most subtle, the most powerful, the most appropriate, instrument for revealing the truth. It is life that, little by little, example by example, permits us to see that what is most important to our heart, or to our mind, is learned not by reasoning but through other agencies. Then it is that the intellect, observing their superiority, abdicates its control to them upon reasoned grounds and agrees to become their collaborator and lackey.
I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death.
Little things affect little minds.
Little minds are interested in the extraordinary; great minds in the commonplace.
It is wonderful when a calculation is made, how little the mind is actually employed in the discharge of any profession.
If you would stand well with a great mind, leave him with a favorable impression of yourself if with a little mind, leave him with a favorable impression of himself.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Little, vicious minds abound with anger and revenge, and are incapable of feeling the pleasure of forgiving their enemies.
Earl of Kent
The human heart feels things the eyes cannot see, and knows what the mind cannot understand.
