"Everybody is a genius. But, if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it is stupid." --Albert Einstein

If I had a nickel
For every question you posed
Every fact you mulled over
Looking down your long nose
If I had a nickel
For every sneer that you wore
Every scoff that you uttered
Discounting thoughts as I swore
If I had a nickel
For every lie that you told
Every fib that you harnessed
To keep the world in your hold
I'd be a very poor man
Yes, I truly would
Not a nickel to my name
I've never met someone so good

I'm not sure where this came from. The phrase "if I had a nickel" has always intrigued me, and this came to me while thinking of it. What if you WOULDN'T become rich if you had a nickel for every time someone did this or that?
