So I’ve been sitting here wanting to write about something profound, and have looked at the screen over 2 dozen times (ok, it’s been a steady staring whilst alt tabbing between here and Guild Wars 2) and cannot think of anything. Then suddenly, I was reading a post that had my favorite quote on a post. Where it says that all the best people are mad. So that lead me to start humming the end to a Dropkick Murphy’s song, Caught in a Jar.
Still got a funny feeling that my times are caught in a jar
madness and insanity have arrived
It made me think of how I’ve really been feeling today. I cannot seem to get myself to focus on anything. It is as if I’m not really here today at all! It is as if my mind has gone, and instead of my times being caught in a jar, it’s my mind. It’s not here and cannot find it anywhere. It would be nice if I could, but alas, my poor baby is missing and unaccounted for. Have you seen it?
So I’ll leave you with some quotes on insanity whilst I undertake a search for it.
We are all born mad. Some remain so. ~SAMUEL BECKETT, Waiting for Godot
Perhaps a lunatic was simply a minority of one. ~ GEORGE ORWELL, Nineteen Eighty-Four
The sanity of society is a balance of a thousand insanities. ~ RALPH WALDO EMERSON, “Nominalist and Realist,” Essays
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. ~ EDGAR ALLAN POE, “Eleonora”
Insanity is contagious. ~ JOSEPH HELLER, Catch-22
By chance, if you happen to have found my sanity and mind, please notify me below. It is stamped made in USA, which might be why it’s missing.
