Quote of the Day
I think it's important to keep your personal life to yourself as much as you can. It protects your sanity and you need to have boundaries. And it helps that enchantment of watching an actor. If you know someone's favourite colour or what they like to do on a Sunday, you won't fall for the character as much.
I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity.
Edgar Allan Poe
Challenge is the pathway to engagement and progress in our lives. But not all challenges are created equal. Some challenges make us feel alive, engaged, connected, and fulfilled. Others simply overwhelm us. Knowing the difference as you set bigger and bolder challenges for yourself is critical to your sanity, success, and satisfaction.
For me, insanity is super sanity. The normal is psychotic. Normal means lack of imagination, lack of creativity.
It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time - the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is never gone.
I am thankful the most important key in history was invented. It's not the key to your house, your car, your boat, your safety deposit box, your bike lock or your private community. It's the key to order, sanity, and peace of mind. The key is 'Delete.'
Eventually, competition and adventure wane, and I enter my ibuprofen phase. Tweaky hamstrings and achy knees restrict mileage, but I continue running for health, sanity, and the ritual of a Sunday trail run with like-minded buddies. We discuss the nagging injuries that bedevil us, and remember the good old days when we were kings.
Too much sanity may be madness and the maddest of all, to see life as it is and not as it should be.
Miguel de Cervantes
'Hamlet' is one of the most dangerous things ever set down on paper. All the big, unknowable questions like what it is to be a human being; the difference between sanity and insanity; the meaning of life and death; what's real and not real. All these subjects can literally drive you mad.
I was in enough to get along with people. I was never socially inarticulate. Not a loner. And that saved my life, saved my sanity. That and the writing. But to this day I distrust anybody who thought school was a good time. Anybody.
God has blessed me with an amazing family, friends and work colleagues that have been my joy, my support, and my sanity. I don't know what I'd do without them.
You only require two things in life: your sanity and your wife.
One of the definitions of sanity is the ability to tell real from unreal. Soon we'll need a new definition.
I want to show that the dividing lines between sanity and mental illness have been drawn in the wrong place.
Sanity is only that which is within the frame of reference of conventional thought.
Nothing I read about grief seemed to exactly express the craziness of it; which was the interesting aspect of it to me - how really tenuous our sanity is.
For your own self-respect and sanity, your creative freedom, you have to be careful that you don't rely too much on other people's opinions of what you do because it can stunt and inhibit you.
Neither conscience nor sanity itself suggests that the United States is, should or could be the global gendarme.
You have to keep your sanity as well as know how to distance yourself from it while still holding onto the reins tightly. That is a very difficult thing to do, but I'm learning.
The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four Americans is suffering from some form of mental illness. Think of your three best friends. If they're okay, then it's you.
Rita Mae Brown
The President must stop gambling with taxpayers' money and get the country back on the path of fiscal sanity.
August in sub-Saharan Los Angeles is one of the great and awful tests of one's endurance, sanity and stamina.
There are some decision-makers in the world whose version of sanity is a little different from what I consider the right one.
The human mind, if it is to keep its sanity, must maintain the nicest balance between unity and plurality.
Sanity is madness put to good use.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

I only hope that we don't lose sight of one thing - that it was all started by a mouse.
