    Identified Einstein's?

    A quote from Walter's Isaacson's new book EINSTEIN HIS LIFE AND UNIVERSE

    "...many of the children loved to play at being soldiers. When troops would come by, accompanied by fifes and drums, kids would pour into the streets to join the parade and march in lockstep. But not Einstein. Watching such a display once, he began to cry. 'When I grow up, I don't want to be one of those poor people,' he told his parents. As Einstein later explained, 'When a person can take pleasure in marching in step to a piece of music it is enough to make me despise him. He has been given his big brain only by mistake.' "

    Any one identify any kids like this?
