A Quote by Paulo Coelho on madness, habits, sanity, working, and insanity

I think the big danger of madness is not madness itself, but the habit of madness.  What I discovered during the time I spent in the asylum is that I could choose madness and spend my whole life without working, doing nothing, pretending to be mad.  It was a very strong temptation..

'But I don't want to go among mad people,' Alice remarked.
'Oh, you can't help that,' said the Cat:  'we're all mad here. I'm mad.  You're mad.'

A Quote by William Shakespeare on love, smoke, fume, sighs, eyes, discreet, and madness

Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs. Being purged, a fire sparkling in lovers' eyes. Being vexed, a sea nourished with lovers' tears. What is it else? A madness most discreet, a choking gall and a preserving sweet.

William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)
