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

Honore de Balzac

With mania, is it dangerous to ride that euphoric feeling. You feel very animated and creative; I would fill journals with drawings. It feels good and you want it to last, but it can lead to being delusional. The delusions can be as real as you thinking you can fly.
David LaChapelle
