While surfing around this morning I wound up at the Freakonomics blog where someone is asking for modern proverbs for a book he is writing. This one was new to me.
The eight year-old neighbor girl’s mother asked Professor Einstein if her daughter was bothering him when she would come in the afternoon to sit on his porch and do her homework. He answered:

I ask you in all honestly, wouldn’t you share your cookies for better math scores?
