OK, let me take a second to adrress something I often hear, and by the way it makes me kind of crazy or insane (lol).

insanity

  [in-san-i-tee]  Show IPA
noun, plural in·san·i·ties.

1.

the condition of being insanea derangement of the mind.dementia, lunacy, madness, craziness, mania,aberration.
2.

Law. such unsoundness of mind as frees one from legalresponsibility, as for committing a crime, or as signals one’s lackof legal capacity, as for entering into a contractual agreement.
3.

4.

a.

extreme foolishness; folly; senselessness; foolhardiness:Trying to drive through that traffic would be pure insanity.
b.

a foolish or senseless action, policy, statement, etc.: We’veheard decades of insanities in our political discourse.
See that? Next time I hear someone say… “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”  I may scream. I don’t care if Albert Einstein did say this he may have been a genius but last time I checked English was his second language.

I would like to quote another genius to counter the incorrect definition that has become one of the most overused cliches in the world. “Change is inevitable in a progressive society. Change is constant.

BENJAMIN DISRAELI

change_quote_3
The only thing constant is change. Everything we know see and are is in a state of constant flux. When someone mentions doing the same thing and expecting different results I would love to remind them that nothing is the same thing ever. Every second of  every day is different than the previous or the next. There is something that did change. The degree of change may be minuscule, but it is present.  To call someone insane for attempting something again and expecting a different result is insulting you and their intelligence and proves that you do not truly undertand the nature of.. well everything.   Wait a minute is it possible that Albert Einstein didn’t understand the changing quality of the universe we all inhabit? Or is it more likely that this quote was never made by Albert Einstein?
Ahh
I think the later may be the case. What do you think? (I mean besides me being insane?)
