A mere MADNESS to live like a wretch, that he may die rich.
All power of fancy over reason is a degree of insanity.
Though this is MADNESS, yet there is method in’t.
Anger is momentary MADNESS, so control your passion
or it will control you.
Love is a smoke raised with the fume of sighs;
Being purged, a fire sparkling in lovers’ eyes;
Being vex’d, a sea nourish’d with lovers’ tears:
What is it else ? a MADNESS most discreet,
A chocking gall and persevering sweet.
William Shakespeare : Romeo and Juliet
MADNESS need not be all breakdown.
Men are so necessarily mad, that not to be mad would
amount to another form of MADNESS.
Oh, that way MADNESS lies; let me shun that.
Passions unguided are for the most part more MADNESS.
Sanity is MADNESS put to good uses.
Television is actually closer to reality than anything in
books. The MADNESS of TV is the MADNESS of human life.
There are ways of curing MADNESS, but none of righting
François De La Rochefoucauld
There is a pleasure in MADNESS, which none but
There is always some MADNESS in love. But there is also always some reason in MADNESS.
There is no great genius without a mixture of MADNESS.
Though this be MADNESS, yet there is method in it.
