Insane Quotations

I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity.
Edgar Allan Poe

The world we see that seems so insane is the result of a belief system that is not working. To perceive the world differently, we must be willing to change our belief system, let the past slip away, expand our sense of now, and dissolve the fear in our minds.
William James

Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we're being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I'm liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That's what's insane about it.
John Lennon

The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.
