1. Be silent and listen: have you recognized your madness and do you admit it? Have you noticed that all your foundations are completely mired in madness? Do you not want to recognize your madness and welcome it in a friendly manner? You wanted to accept everything. So accept madness too. Let the light of your madness shine, and it will suddenly dawn on you. Madness is not to be despised and not to be feared, but instead you should give it life.
    – Carl Jung, The Red Book

    An individual has the right to express himself or herself even if he or she behaves irrationally; to demonstrate his or her insanity.
    – Muammer Gaddafi, The Green Book

    • Thank you Cabrogal. Your insightful comment is much appreciated and very informative. Jung has a very encouraging approach to madness and Colonel Gaddafi’s comment is very liberating! I think it’s time to accept my madness and f*** everyone else. (You see the problem there, I used astericks)


  2. Yeah, Maggie on four hours a night haunts me lately because that’s what I live off now, when I don’t nick my husbands amitriptyline. Didn’t know Ronnie also did four hours. They were soul mates in a way. Heard that she made tea for her cabinet ministers regularly, most meetings. She poured it, put in milk and sugar. She was mother, every time.
