“People will accept your ideas much more readily if you tell them Benjamin Franklin said it first.”
-David H. Comins
I laughed when I first read it because 1) Ben Franklin is one person that I hold in high regard, and 2) it is a bit ironic how people will blindly accept an idea based on the source.
Be grateful that you have the ability to be a thinker. You do not have to blindly accept an idea based on its source. You can agree, you can disagree, and you can remain neutral. You have the ability (in many cases) to research and mull an idea over.
If an idea resonates with you, take it. If not, just move on.
