hysteria

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on women, imagination, creativity, witchcraft, hysteria, wisdom, and wise women

Our imagination is larger than the world around us; we go beyond our limits.  This used to be called 'witchcraft,' but fortunately things have changed, otherwise we would both already have been burned at the stake.  When they stopped burning women, science found an explanation for our behavior, normally referred to as 'female hysteria.'  We don't get burned anymore, but it does cause problems, especially in the workplace.  But don't worry, eventually they'll call it 'wisdom.'

A Quote by Adolf Hitler on faith, knowledge, love, change, respect, hate, aversion, impetus, upheaval, earth, fanaticism, and hysteria

Faith is harder to shake than knowledge, love succumbs less to change than respect, hate is more enduring than aversion, and the impetus to the mightiest upheavals on this earth has at all times consisted less in a scientific knowledge dominating the masses than in a fanaticism which inspired them and sometimes in a hysteria which drove them forward.

Adolf Hitler (1889 - 1945)
