Let me paraphrase some great minds for this column; you can view this as my mind unleashing its neural Roomba and organizing the clutter.
"Insanity is performing the same actions, over and over, and expecting different results."
- Albert Einstein
"If a million people say a foolish thing, it is still a foolish thing."
- Anatole France
"Give me a lever long enough, and a fulcrum upon which to set it, and I will move the world."
"Qui tacit per alium, facit per se."
- A Latin legal term meaning, "He who acts through another does the act himself." It is a fundamental maxim of the law of agency. This is a maxim often stated in discussing the liability of employer for the act of employee.
According to this maxim, if in the nature of things the master is obliged to perform the duties by employing servants, he is responsible for their act in the same way that he is responsible for his own acts.
