I do not suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it.
Science has not yet taught us if madness is or is not the sublimity of the intelligence.
I have great faith in fools - self-confidence my friends will call it.

Avarice, ambition, lust, etc., are nothing but species of madness
All are lunatics, but he who can analyze his delusion is called a philosopher
The great proof of madness is the disproportion of one's designs to one's means
Every madman considers everyone else a madman
When we remember we are all mad, the mysteries disappear and life stands explained
The trouble ain't that there is too many fools, but that the lightning ain't distributed right
All places are filled with fools

On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
