Topics: MADNESS

And it is easy to slip into a parallel universe. There are
so many of them: worlds of the insane, the criminal,
the crippled, the dying, perhaps of the dead as well.
These worlds exist alongside this world and resemble
it, but are not in it.
~ Susanna Kaysen ~
Comment: The Kingdom of Heaven is within, not alongside.

Madness is consistent, which is more than can be said
of poor reason. Whatever may be the ruling passion at
the time continues so throughout the whole delirium,
though it should last for life. Our passions and principles
are steady in frenzy, but begin to shift and waver as we
return to reason.
~ Lawrence Sterne ~
Comment: It is because our passions and principles are assaulted that madness comes. In prayer and supplication before God, His hand shall always press against our passions and uphold His principles…so in the end there is no madness, only joy.

The insane, for the most part, reason correctly, but from
false principles, while they do not perceive that their
premises are incorrect.
~ Tryon Edwards ~
Comment: Some people take in the truth like they are eating food, other people take in truth like they put money in their pocket. For some, money burns a hole in their pocket. For others, truth taken in like food becomes nourishment for the soul.

He raves; his words are loose as heaps of sand, and
scattered wide from sense. So high he's mounted on
his airy throne, that now the wind has got into his
head, and turns his brains to frenzy.
~ John Dryden ~
Comment: There is always a certain sweetness about madness that sooner or later turns to utter bitterness.
