Einstein once defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Except he almost certainly never said it and it’s a bit of a rubbish definition for insanity anyway. But that’s not the point. I’ve been chasing her for over a year, asking her out and being knocked back time and time again and I’ve definitely been told I’m crazy, my sanity does feel fragile. People think I must be obsessed, that I just need to get over her, but it’s not like that. I love her. I always have. Einstein probably never said those words because he was too smart to define something so large in such a narrow way. More importantly, as a scientist, he knew the value of repetition. And anyway, I don’t expect a different result, but my heart won’t let me do anything but try.
Wow. Another one I really like. In education we sort of have the inverse of what Einstein may have said. To raise standards, keep doing something new. Perish the thought that perhaps we should do the same as when achievement was higher rather than roll out yet another new approach.
