Nice quote

I thought this was kind of funny: "Let us consider that we are all partially insane. It will explain us to each other; it will unriddle many riddles; it will make clear and simple many things which are involved in haunting and harassing difficulties and obscurities now. " --Mark Twain

I love it. :banana
I like that quote. :)
I was studying psychology and sociology in the past ... I happened upon a study posted by someone very educated... and he said something like people who have disorders or are considered crazy are actually the sane ones... most people who are considered 'normal' are actual insane because they have to create certain self delusions etc to live with themselves and deal with their lives and to ignore the problems of the world. It said people who are actually aware of their problems, problems of the world, and have problems with it or themselves are actually sane because they dont have the self created illusions and they allow themselves to be affected and aware of the things that are wrong/problems and dont pretend like the world is ok ... im really not explaining this well ... i wish i still had that info it was interesting and funny...
i hope that didnt sounds too negative....

Hi babycat, thanks for the info. It reminds me of that question whether insane people know whether they're insane or not, or are able to ask it of themselves. (I might have heard it from a recent movie with Anthony Hopkins in it)... Yeah, so it's a relief to know that since we are aware of our problems, we might not actually be insane... :yay
