„Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results.“

—  Rita Mae Brown Novelist, poet, screenwriter, activist 1944
Misattributed, Brown did include this quote in her book Sudden Death (Bantam Books, New York, 1983), p. 68, but it appears she was just paraphrasing a quote that had already been written elsewhere. The earliest known appearance of a similar quote is the "approval version" of the Narcotics Anonymous "Basic Text" released in November 1981, which included the quote "Insanity is repeating the same mistakes and expecting different results." A PDF scan of the 1981 approval version can be found here http://www.nauca.us/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/1981-11-Basic-Text-Approval-Form-White.pdf, with the quote appearing on p. 11 (p. 25 of the PDF), at the end of the fourth paragraph (which begins "We have a disease; progressive, incurable and fatal").

„… one damn thing after another … one damn thing over and over.“

—  Edna St. Vincent Millay American poet 1892 - 1950
From an October 1930 letter to Arthur Davison Ficke, as variously described by her biographers, e.g.: [L]ife was not so much "one damn thing after another" as "one damn thing over and over" As paraphrased ("she had sent [...] a half-comic note, complaining that...") with quoted phrases in Jean Gould, The Poet and Her Book: A Biography of Edna St. Vincent Millay (1969), p. 198 [L]ife isn't one thing after another, it's the same thing over and over As paraphrased ("she writes that...") and apparently Bowlderized in Miriam Gurko, Restless spirit: the life of Edna St. Vincent Millay (1962), p. 197 [I]t was not true that life is one damn thing after another — it was one damn thing over and over As paraphrased ("Edna had written [...] that...") in Joan Dash, A Life of One's Own: Three Gifted Women and the Men they Married (1973), p. 189 The paraphrase by Dash appears to be the origin of later popularly attributed variants, e.g.: It is not true that life is one damn thing after another. It's the same damn thing over and over. As attributed without citation in Psychoanalysis Today: A Case Book (1991) by Elizabeth Thorne and Shirley Herscovitch Schaye, p. 93 It is not true that life is one damn thing after another. It's the same dang thing over and over again. As attributed without citation in The Last Word: A Treasury of Women's Quotes (1992) by Carolyn Warner
