“Man’s mind once stretched by a new idea never regains its original dimension.”
– Oliver Wendell Holmes
This quote is up there with my top five favorite ones. I would go as far as saying that I try to live by this quote. I had given up on a lot of ideas during my life, almost feeling like my childhood dreams of changing the world were just futile. The Internet changed all that and I believe that the occasional banter we have here and there helps us move further.
I think this is the new way of stretching minds, blogs and websites where you find information that sparks new thoughts. I have seen points of views on subjects that I had not considered before and every single day I feel like I learn a little more. What stretches your mind?
