I think quotes have expiration dates or limits on how often they can be repeated...

... because there are lots of old lines being copy-pasted out there that although "witty and insightful" cannot seem to overcome sounding cheesy and cliche (at least not to my noggin). I'm sorry, but I think it's time to bury those forever hackneyed phases. And gosh, do you realize how many quotes are paraphrases and overlaps of each other? How about a quote that expresses that creativity plays absolutely NO component in genius, for a change! I might actually buy that adage out of disenchantment. Maybe we've really run out of things to be profound about. Personally, I just stay away from quotes. Especially ones by Einstein. 
End Rant.

  1. i so agree with you...also i don't think Einstein said all those quotes that are floating around the internet, i think anytime some makes a new quote they attribute it to Einstein just to give it some weight and credibility!
