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.
~Henry Miller

There is always some madness in love. But there is always some reason in madness.
~Friedrich Nietzsche

"Behold," said she. "I am that which MUST EVER SURPASS ITSELF."
~Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spake Zarathustra
