Those who matter don’t mind, and those who mind don’t matter.

Bernard Baruch (1870-1965) American businessman and statesman

When asked by Igor Cassini, society columnist for the New York Journal American, how he handled the seating arrangements at all his dinner parties, Baruch responded, "I never bother about that. Those who matter don't mind, and those who mind don't matter."

Quoted in Bennett Cerf, Shake Well Before Using: A New Collection of Impressions and Anecdotes Mostly Humorous (1948).
