This photograph is sill being circulated with a wrong caption: Einstein with his therapist. Some “historical fact” accounts also include the following quote: Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know. (The quote is from The Garden of Eden, a novel by Ernest Hemingway)

The caption is absolutely false. That is a photo of Cord Meyer Jr., president of United World Federalists, visiting physicist Albert Einstein at his home to discuss Russia’s attitude toward world government in 1948.
Although this stupid meme has been debunked many times, it just won’t go away. And it probably won’t if you don’t act: when you see it, don’t spread it. Unfollow accounts sharing it. Post the fact as a response.
