    Yes, yes, yes! I also don't like people who write books on wisdom and advice when their behaviour shows in contradiction to that. Pretentious philosophy at work.

    "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. "

    "I believe that you believe."

    I don't know if it's a common saying, but I've heard it a few times. Just make a stand. It's like some poor attempt at being empathetic, but all it is patronizing.
