    Remind or reminds

    "You would also say the same thing if your sister mentions that she remind you of your father's birthday ". I have copied it from somewhere. My question is shouldn't writer have used " reminds" instead of remind here?.

    Re: Remind or reminds

    From the context "reminded" seems more logical to me.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    Reminds would work.

    Re: Remind or reminds

    Do you mean something like 'she reminds you of your father's birthday every year'?

    Certainly "reminds" would work, in the context that Matthew suggested.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”
