Quote of Note :: Sanity / Insanity

Found on my desk - two quotes on the same subject : Sanity.

The one above is a sculpture from a clients' home.
The image was just a quick snapshot because I found the sentiment to be
fascinating .. . .
along with the added effect of the shadow created by the lighting.
I've no idea as to the source of the quote.

The second commentary on the subject came from a
footnote on a recent email :

"Sometimes the appropriate response to reality
is to go insane."

(Philip K. Dick - science fiction writer)

I've long joked that the only real difference between being labeled
Crazy or Eccentric is the size of your bank account ... . .
and that I long to graduate to - Eccentricity !

Alas, we live in interesting times. So many labels & definitions are
being tossed out and redefined . Though it often makes for quite a
rocky roller coaster ride, it's certainly not boring .

I read a bloggers request today to join him, as he politely goes insane.

Insanity must be in the air!

And what is wrong with insanity? ;)
I know I am insane/eccentric and I wouldn't have it any other way!

I long to graduate to - Eccentricity !

you and me both!

OH. Silly me. Here I was going around saying I'm eccentric when I haven't the bank account to give me the credibility! Well, I'm good with crazy too.
Hey, love that new banner! That must be your sweet baby face?

I think eccentricity crosses the socio-economic spectrum. Lovely banner!

I especially like the quote by Philip K. Dick! LOL!

Ashley Brilliant has a few apt quotes on the subject
'Anybody who behaved normally all of the time.....would not be completely normal'
and, my fav, 'I make occasional visits to Reality...but I'm not a full time resident'!

Greetings from the green belt! Thanks for giving me the explanation I need to convince those "normals" that I am indeed where I am supposed to be! I agree with the others, that banner is fabu sugar. How did your little bundle like that amazing spring snow yesterday? Enjoy your day! smooches
