Love, Laughter, and

“Men have called me mad; but the question is not yet settled, whether madness is or is not the loftiest intelligence.”


Edgar Allan Poe

“Madness is terrific I can assure you, and not to be sniffed at; and in its lava I still find most of the things I write about. It shoots out of one everything shaped, final, not in mere driblets, as sanity does.”

Virginia Woolf

“There is always some madness in love. But there is also always some reason in madness.”

Friedrich Nietzsche

“Sometimes, to regain sanity, one had to acknowledge and embrace the madness.”

Morgan Rhodes

“No great mind has ever existed without a touch of madness.”


“You’re only given a little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it.”

Robin Williams

“In a mad world, only the mad are sane.”

Akira Kurosawa

“All living things contain a measure of madness that moves them in strange, sometimes inexplicable ways. This madness can be saving; it is part and parcel of the ability to adapt. Without it, no species would survive.”

Yann Martel

“He in his madness prays for storms, and dreams that storms will bring him peace.”

Mikhail Lermontov

“Madness in great ones must not unwatched go.”

William Shakespeare

“Too much sanity may be madness – and maddest of all: to see life as it is, and not as it should be!”

Dale Wasserman

“You’re mad, bonkers, completely off your head. But I’ll tell you a secret. All the best people are.”

Lewis Carroll

Welcome to the Madness!

This blog is a way for me to explore everyday life through my writing. And I’ve found that life is filled with quite a bit of love, laughter, and madness. There may be no rhyme or reason to my postings or correlation between them; such is life. Enjoy if you please!
