98,700.  Much Madness is Divinest Sense

To a discerning eye ... Emily Dickinson, 435

 

 

629.  We have names for people who have many beliefs for which there is no rational justification.  When their beliefs are extremely common we call them ‘religious’; otherwise, they are likely to be called ‘mad’, ‘psychotic’ or ’delusional’.  (Religion & Belief & Mad & Lunacy)  Sam Harris, The End of Faith

 

630.  The danger of religious faith is that it allows otherwise normal human beings to reap the fruits of madness and consider them holy.  (Religion & Belief & Faith & Mad & Lunacy & Holy)  ibid.

 

 

722.  Whom the gods would destroy they first make mad.  (Gods & Destroy & Mad)  Euripides 484-406BC
 

 

80,037.  Good morning, Mr Beale.  They tell me you are a madman.  Network 1976 starring Faye Dunaway & Peter Finch & William Holden & Robert Duvall & Wesley Addy & Ned Beatty & Beatrice Straight & Jordan Charney & William Prince & Lane Smith & Marlene Warfield & Conchata Ferrell et al, director Sidney Lumet

 

1,115.  I don’t have to tell you things are bad.  Everybody knows things are bad.  It’s a depression.  Everybody’s out of work.  Or scared of losing their job.  The dollar buys a nickle’s-worth.  Banks are going bust.  Shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter.  Punks are running wild in the street and there’s nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do.  And there’s no end to it.  We know the air is unfit to breathe.  And our food is unfit to eat.  And we sit watching our TVs while some local newscaster tells us that today we had fifteen homicides and sixty-three violent crimes as if that’s the way it’s supposed to be.  We know things are bad.  Worse than bad.  They’re crazy.  It’s like everything everywhere is going crazy so we don’t go out any more.  We sit in the house and slowly the world we’re living in is getting smaller.  And all we say is, Please, at least leave us alone in our living-rooms.  Let me have my toaster, and my TV and my steel-belted radials and I won’t say anything.  Just leave us alone.  Well I’m not going to leave you alone.  I want you to get mad.  I don’t want you to protest.  I won’t want you to ride.  I don’t want you to write to your Congressman because I wouldn't know what to tell you to write.  I don’t know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the Russians and the crime in the street.  All I know is first you’ve got to get mad.  You’ve got to say, I’m a human being.  Goddamnit.  My life has value!  (Life's Like That & Dissent & Protest & Crazy & Man & Human Being & Mad)  ibid.

1,118.  We’re not going to take this any more.  We’re as mad as Hell.  (Life's Like That & Dissent & Protest & Mad)  Ian Pattison, Rab C Nesbitt, Racket [cf. Network 1976]

6,073.  At bottom, you see, we are not Homo sapiens as all.  Our core is madness.  The prime directive is murder.  What Darwin was too polite to say, my friends, is that we came to rule the earth not because we were the smartest, or even the meanest, but because we have always been the craziest, most murderous motherfuckers in the jungle.  (Evolution & Murder & Madness)  Stephen King

 

 

6,502.  I put my heart and my soul into my work, and have lost my mind in the process.  (Mind & Madness & Artist: Van Gogh)  Vincent van Gogh

 

 

80,033.  I shouldn’t precisely have chosen madness if there had been any choice, but once such a thing has taken hold of you, you can't very well get out of it.  Vincent van Gogh
 

 

6,682.  Men have called me mad; but the question is not yet settled, whether madness is or is not the loftiest intelligence – whether much that is glorious – whether all that is profound – does not spring from disease of thought – from moods of mind exalted at the expense of the general intellect.  (Intellect & Madness & Think & Mind)  Edgar Allan Poe, Complete

 

 

6,767.  Doubt ... is an illness that comes from knowledge and leads to madness. (Knowledge & Doubt & Madness)  Gustave Flaubert, Memoirs of a Madman

 

 

10,373.  Not mad exactly but suffering.  Vincent was an epileptic and struggled with deepening bouts of depression, made worse no doubt by the relentless bad news from Theo that still nobody wanted to buy his pictures.  (Artist & Painting & Madness & Mental Health & Depression)  Simon Schama’s Power of Art: Van Gogh

 

 

10,405.  There’s always a sense of reasoning in Leonardo’s prophecies.  And there’s also often a moral and ethical reading to them; even if he himself explained that the prophecies could be described as brain-teasers.  Almost as if he, the author of them, was a mad man.  (Art & Reason & Prophecy & Mad)  Alessandro Vezzosi, Director Museo Ideale Leonardo Da Vinci

 

 

10,817.  There is perhaps a hint of madness in Pre-Raphaelite painting.  (Art & Madness)  Andrew Lloyd Webber, Perspectives, ITV 2011  

 

 

10,915.  There is only one difference between a madman and me.  The madman thinks he is sane.  I know I am mad.  (Art & Mad)  Salvador Dali

 

 

13,588.  Do you feel blame?  Are you mad?  Uh, do you feel like wolf kabob Roth vantage?  Gefrannis booj pooch boo jujube; bear-ramage.  Jigiji geeji geeja geeble google.  Do you begep flagaggle vaggle veditch-waggle bagga?  (Cult & Madness)  Charles Manson, interview San Quentin Prison

31,091.  He’s madder than mad Jack McMad, the winner of last year’s Mr Madman competition.  (England & George IV & Madness)  Curtis & Elton: Blackadder III: Duel & Duality, Blackadder of his Scottish cousin

 

 

26,479.  Who would have noticed another madman around here?  (World War I & Madness)  Curtis & Elton, Blackadder Goes Forth: Plan F – Goodbyeee, Blackadder to Baldrick

 

 

27,041.  Madness!  Madness!  (World War II & Mad)  The Bridge on the River Kwai 1957 starring Alec Guinness & William Holden & Jack Hawkins & Ann Sears & Sessue Hayakawa & James Donald & Geoffrey Horne & Heihachiro Okawa & Keiichiro Katsumoto et al, director David Lean, engineer closing lines

 

 

27,569.  The Fuhrer Cult taken to excess.  Twilight of the Idols in all its splendour.  Where Madness rules, the Absurd is not far away.  (Nazi & Madness)  Hitler: A Profile

 

 

40,715.  My love’s a noble madness.  (Love & Madness)  John Dryden

And thin partitions do their bounds divide.  John Dryden 1631-1700

In being made, which none but madmen know!  John Dryden
