(note: long)
"I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night."
-Sarah Williams
One that belongs well with this board

"I believe in both sides of the issue. That is why I argue effectively. Fewer enemies that way, too."
-Ian 'Sings of the Blood Moons'
Be fearful, those who see what I do and agree with what I say, for I am mad.
A young man wrote to Mozart and said, "Herr Mozart, I am thinking of writing symphonies. Can you give me any suggestions as to how to get started?"
Mozart responded, "A symphony is a very complex musical form, perhaps you should begin with some simple lieder and work your way up to a symphony."
"But Herr Mozart, you were writing symphonies when you were 8 years old."
"But I never asked anybody how."
Dunno what its from but I liked it

"Craziness is in the eyes of the beholder."
"If we could just find out who's in charge, we could kill him."
-George Carlin
"Nothing is fool-proof to a sufficiently talented fool."
"A lunatic may be 'soothed,' as it is called, for a time. But in the
end, he is apt to become obstreperous. His cunning too is proverbial and
great. If he has a project in view, he conceals his design with a marvelous
wisdom; and the dexterity with which he counterfeits sanity presents to
the metaphysician one of the most singular problems in the study of the
mind. When a madman appears to be thoroughly sane, indeed, it is high time
to put him in a straightjacket."
-E.A. Poe "The System of Dr. Tarr and Prof. Fether"
I like that one

"A man feared he might find an assassin;
Another that he might find a victim.
One was more wise than the other."
-Stephen Crane
"There's a pleasure sure
in being mad
Which none but madmen know..."
-John Dryden
"Nothing is more dangerous than an idea when it is the only one you have."
-Emile Chartier
"When a Malkavian speaks, listen. When a Malkavian acts, leave.
When two Malkavians gather, run."
-Gangrel, on Malkavians
"To distinguish the real from the unreal, one must experience them both."
"If life gives you lemons, squeeze the juice into a watergun and shoot
other people in the eyes."
"Reality and I had a fundamental differing of opinions. We're currently
undergoing trial separation."
-Lothriel the PIXIE
-Joop Jeans
"You are NOT thinking! You're merely being rational!"
-Niels Bohr, to Albert Einstein
"We are all agreed that your theory is crazy. The question which divides
us is whether it is crazy enough to have a chance of being correct. My
own feeling is that it is not crazy enough."
-Niels Bohr
"Isn't sanity just a one-trick pony anyway? I mean, all you get
is that one trick--rational thinking--but when you're good and crazy,
well, the sky's the limit!"
-The Tick
"Give a man a fish and he can eat for a day. But give a man a stick
of dynamite and at least he'll die with his stomach full."
TL: DR - Go up and read
That is all for now.
