Mania Quotations

Racing is a great mania to which one must sacrifice everything, without reticence, without hesitation.
Enzo Ferrari

It is a mania shared by philosophers of all ages to deny what exists and to explain what does not exist.
Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Darell Hammond

Bulls don't read. Bears read financial history. As markets fall to bits, the bears dust off the Dutch tulip mania of 1637, the Banque Royale of 1719-20, the railway speculation of the 1840s, the great crash of 1929.
James Buchan

I have spent my life going from mania to mania. Somehow it has all paid off.
