Endigar 172

“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. ”

  • This and variations on it have been attributed to various different sources, including Benjamin Franklin, Albert Einstein, an old Chinese proverb, and Rita Mae Brown.

Luke 11:9-10 (Amplified Bible)

9.  So I say to you, Ask and keep on asking and it shall be given you; seek and keep on seeking and you shall find; knock and keep on knocking and the door shall be opened to you.

10.  For everyone who asks and keeps on asking receives; and he who seeks and keeps on seeking finds; and to him who knocks and keeps on knocking, the door shall be opened.

So when does persistance become madness?

I think this phrase would be more useful as follows:

A symptom of insanity is doing the same self-destuctive thing over and over again and expecting results to improve.
