Surrealism had a great effect on me because then I realised that the imagery in my mind wasn't insanity. Surrealism to me is reality.
John Lennon

Insanity - a perfectly rational adjustment to an insane world.
R. D. Laing

What garlic is to salad, insanity is to art.
Augustus Saint-Gaudens

What a fine line there is between artistry and insanity. There's no formula for it, and I think a lot of people when they're around you - even those closest to you - when you're in that whirl of creativity and you're grabbing those things out of the air, there's no rational process.
Ronnie Dunn

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
Albert Einstein

In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule.
Friedrich Nietzsche

There's a fine line between genius and insanity. I have erased this line.
Oscar Levant

I doubt if a single individual could be found from the whole of mankind free from some form of insanity. The only difference is one of degree. A man who sees a gourd and takes it for his wife is called insane because this happens to very few people.
Desiderius Erasmus

I agree with Albert Einstein .But that last one makes me laugh. I would never have thought of it, if I had not read it.
lilo, I don't see a follow-up preceding yours. Hmmm?

Who among us isn't a little nutty. I feel like Oscar Levant, busy erasing the line. Just about have it done.

Just imagine everybody completely rational - it would be a robot world and no fun anywhere. Thanks Don for reminding us that a bit of insanity helps us to enjoy life, I definitely have my share.

Good thing they took it down. We don't need "weird spam".
