It has often been remarked that there is a side at which genius and madness touch, and even pass over into each other, and indeed poetical inspiration has been called a kind of madness: amabilis insania , Horace calls it.

I am mad, after having lived through the crazy narrative of schizophrenia. It made me somewhat religious, but otherwise I would have been better off sane.
