Scientist, Quotier Extroardinaire

Perhaps poetry was not such a great idea.
It turns out my life’s calling as a poet was not quite as life-calling-ey as I thought. It turns out no one wants to read poems about UFOs, and who knew the name Robert Burns was already taken? I sure didn’t.
I think I should try being a scientist. That is, not the kind of scientist who is remembered for his ever-so-important work in the field of quantum mechanics, but rather the kind who is famous for his ever-so-inspirational quotes.
Maybe I made unprecedented advancements in theoretical physics, perhaps I more or less invented the atom bomb; none of that matters, really.
I already have some quotes for the presses:
“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.”
“Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”
“It is the responsibility of every human being to aspire to do something worthwhile, to make this world a better place than the one he found.”
It doesn’t matter if my IQ is 400 (which it is… I took an online test), the people will love me for my inspirational quotes, so that is what I will give them. I was just thinking, it’s too bad they don’t give out a Nobel prize for saying inspirational things because it would be awarded to me, no doubt.
