What is testing

I want to define what I think testing is. I find it really important to drill this into new hires. Its the first thing I talk about with them. Note: this is my definition... (i don't know if other people think the same way... but i know it works, you will ship high quality products following it)

Testing is all about finding bugs. Bugs are only found if you are trying to break the product. If at somepoint you start to verify the product, then you are not testing. So I guess "testing" == "breaking"... in my world. :)
