See, the human mind is kind of like...
a pinata. When it breaks open,
there's a lot of surprises inside.
Once you get the pinata perspective,
you see that losing your mind
can be a peak experience.

I found this quote in (of all things!) my Unix textbook.

I like this woman's attitude- I don't know whether this quote comes from a book, a dissertation, a thesis, or speech. But I like it. (Losing your mind is just about finding what you have stored in there.)
