There is only one difference between a madman and me. I am not mad.... Video
The only difference between me and a madman is that I am not mad.
The only difference between a madman and myself is that I am not mad.
Oh yes! The one man in the world who never believes he's mad is the madman.
L. Ron Hubbard
Perhaps he was a bit different from other people, but what really sympathetic person is not a little mad?
And what is an authentic madman? It is a man who preferred to become mad, in the socially accepted sense of the word, rather than forfeit a certain superior idea of human honor. So society has strangled in its asylums all those it wanted to get rid of or protect itself from, because they refused to become its accomplices in certain great nastinesses. For a madman is also a man whom society did not want to hear and whom it wanted to prevent from uttering certain intolerable truths.
What frightens us most in a madman is his sane conversation.
In a mad world, only the mad are sane.
Sanity is a madness put to good uses; waking life is a dream controlled.
He never went mad in your sense. My dear fellow, you're very much wrong if you think there was anything pathological about him â€” then. The man was brilliantly sane. His mind was as keen as a keen sword. I couldn't understand him, but I could judge of his sanity right enough.
If a madman were to come into this room with a stick in his hand, no doubt we should pity the state of his mind; but our primary consideration would be to take care of ourselves. We should knock him down first, and pity him afterwards.
