I really don’t like the quote. If you believe so, argue with me on following questions:

  • Can’t two great mind think different ?

  • What if fool and great mind are thinking alike coincidentally ? [Reference]

  • What if both are fool and thinking alike ?[Reference]

Tell me,

  • Would Wilbur and Orville Wright have ever gotten that plane off the ground without their collective brainpower, inventiveness and determination? [Reference]

  • Would Thomas Edison have ever seen his light bulb reach the masses without the business guidance and investment of J.P. Morgan? [Reference]

Comment on “great minds think alike” by philosopher and revolutionary, Thomas Paine:

“I do not believe that any two men, on what are called doctrinal points, think alike who think at all. It is only those who have not thought that appear to agree.”

Really, If “great mind think alike” is true then we didn’t able to innovate so much things in the world.

So, If you are using this quote then use full quote,

“Great mind thinks alike, Fools seldom differ” ;-)
