A Real Genius

A Real Genius


I don’t know how it started. I began getting a daily inspirational quote in my e-mails. Usually when something comes I didn’t sign up for, I immediately unsubscribe. That doesn’t stop the next male-enhancement drug adds from coming my way, but I try to stay off most mailing lists.

The thing with these inspirational quotes…they really can be inspiring. It’s usually something in the context of “If you get off your ass and do something, you have a better chance of succeeding than if you just sit around feeling sorry for yourself.”

They’re usually able to say it in fewer words…probably why the name “John Knight” has yet to show up in my daily inspirational quotes.

Some days the quotes are from somebody like Taylor Swift or Katy Perry. I never even bother to open those…I shouldn’t have to tell you why I never bother to open those.

Up until today my favorite quote came from one of my comedy heroes, Groucho Marx.

“The secret of life is honesty and fair dealing. If you can fake that, you’ve got it made.”

That basically sums it up. I’ve been living by those words. Then today, I was inspired by one of the greatest minds of all time, Albert Einstein.

“Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not so sure about the former.”

Ohhhh…., stupid people getting burned by Einstein. It’s almost like my own quote,

“Most people are morons!”

See, now there’s an inspirational quotation. I don’t even have to add the part,

“Put on this earth to aggravate me.”

You can say Einstein was referring to the fact, all people spend too much time on trivial things instead of using our minds for the greater good.

I’m not reading it that way. I’m seeing,

“Most people are morons!”…and I’m not.

What kind of things do you think people did to annoy Einstein? There weren’t cell phones, so they couldn’t have walked into him while they were texting.

I suppose they could have cut him off in traffic and then failed to look in the rear view mirror as he was waving his finger…that’s the most annoying thing…

“Look in the mirror you moron! I have a message for you!”

I guess Einstein could have stumbled upon those people having a conversation at the supermarket in front of the item he wanted. Then, when you reach your arm right in between them to grab your milk, they look at you like you’re the one who’s ignorant.

Einstein knew people were stupid. That’s because he was a genius, and he never had to tell us he was a genius. Only an imbecile would go around telling you they were a genius.
