Oliver Wendell Holmes
Oliver Wendell Holmes said “Man’s mind stretched to a new idea never returns to its original dimensions.”
Now that’s funny, because the source where I got the quote stated that it was by Albert Einstein! (I know I totally need to sit down and put author names on everything here one of these days) Thanks for that input.
Franklin, Einstein, and Churchill seem to be the given source for so much of what is said today. It can be especially funny when students quote the Bible and attribute it to Franklin. O.W. Holmes was born in the first part of the 19th century and wrote prolifically. His son was a US Supreme Court Justice.
