“We can put ‘mad’ in the same category as ‘legend’ in terms of words that used to mean something but are now exclusively used by the awful.”

“It’s profoundly counter-intuitive for us to think of ourselves as mad. We seem so normal and mostly so good – to ourselves. It’s everyone else who is out of step… And yet maturity begins with the capacity to sense and, in good time and without defensiveness, admit to our own craziness. If we are not regularly deeply embarrassed by who we are, the journey to self-knowledge hasn’t begun.” ~Alain de Botton (Book: The Course of Love)
