Thoughtful Thursday - sanity day!
One of the definitions of sanity is the ability to tell real from unreal. Soon we'll need a new definition.
I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity.
Edgar Allan Poe
Sanity calms, but madness is more interesting.
Sanity is madness put to good use.
I know the topic might be a bit heavy but who is to say we can't handle it? It's all about our brains...
Do you agree with the quotes I chose and posted above? Which ones? Why? What does it really mean to be sane? Do geniuses are just mentally ill people whith outrageous ideas which somehow happen to turn right? Do you need to/must be sane to write good books? Why so many people nowadays, although officially completely sane, according to A.Toffler have serious problems with telling the real from unreal?
