- George Bernard Shaw

      Great Quote. I think it's better than: "If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas." George Bernard Shaw.

      Kate.

    Really a great thought. Exchanging of idea multiplies our ideas and vision too. So constant interaction with like minded people or even people with different views can also throw light on something else, we are not aware of. So it is beneficial to keep our mind, eyes and ears open to expand our ideas. thanks for sharing such a great thought.

    many ideas is better than one idea, because no single individual can foresee all possible outcome of his own idea, so i guess many ideas would be great.

    It is a great quote and i get it . Exchange value and both of parties will gain from the experience but it doesn't always work that way

    It depends on the worth of the value you exchange . if you have ideas that are n't feasible you have n't gained from the transaction

    However , an idea is not something you want to bottle up . It must be shared and evaluate by people not intimated by idea

    Yeah, its not like we can memorize the apples like an idea. To me its kinda dumb comparing that totally different stuff, but it makes you think about the common things
