At last I broke out of my trivial pattern above, although I'm worried still about my three spaced periods. What convention, I ask, determines the trivial set we call ellipses marks — some divine revelation or some human convention? To have broken free does help, however, although I'm afraid I've today another set to share.

They came, trivially, from a friend's e-mail:

Small minds discuss people.

Average minds discuss events.

Great minds discuss ideas.

People: Three Classes of Students.

Events: Tests and Papers Given in Each One of Them This Week.

Ideas: My Now Having to Do Simple Justice By Them.

So what of their Added Fourth & Fifth Dimensions?

We are all, indeed, small, average, and great at once!
