I like to think I know quite a bit about linguistics and at least something about philosophy. I'm also quite interested and somewhat knowledgeable in the field of art. I like to read and I read everything I can. I am more interested in ideas than literary techniques, though that is not to say that I do not appreciate good writing.
I have cultivated my hysteria with delight and terror.
~ Charles Baudelaire
Only those things are beautiful which are inspired by madness and written by reason.
~ Andre Gide
Madness is tonic and invigorating. It makes the sane more sane. The only ones who are unable to profit from it are the insane.
There is always some madness in love. But there is always some reason in madness.
"Behold," said she. "I am that which MUST EVER SURPASS ITSELF."
~Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spake Zarathustra
