Someone gave me a great quote for a report, but they weren't sure who said it (maybe Albert Einstein?). Does anyone know the author of this quote? And if this is worded correctly?

"We cannot deal with the problem if we remain the people who created it."

Thank you!

That sounds like a paraphrase of this one:
Quote:
"The significant problems we have cannot be solved at the same level of thinking with which we created them."
-- Albert Einstein (attributed)
However, this is listed under "things Einstein probably didn't say" in the book "The Expanded Quotable Einstein" and is probably not a true Einstein quotation. As to who actually said it... Who knows.

I know this isn't what you're looking for, but I can't help but recall the famous Civil Rights era slogan coined by Eldridge Cleaver:

What we’re saying today is that you’re either part of the solution or you’re part of the problem.
