Jack Kerouac
“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.”
Jack Kerouac, On the Road

Warren Ellis

Tite Kubo
“The perfect being, huh? There is no such thing as perfect in this world. That may sound cliché, but it’s the truth. The average person admires perfection and seeks to obtain it. But, what’s the point of achieving perfection? There is none. Nothing. Not a single thing. I loathe perfection! If something is perfect, then there is nothing left. There is no room for imagination. No place left for a person to gain additional knowledge or abilities. Do you know what that means? For scientists such as ourselves, perfection only brings despair. It is our job to create things more wonderful than anything before them, but never to obtain perfection. A scientist must be a person who finds ecstasy while suffering from that antimony. In short, the moment that foolishness left your mouth and reached my ears, you had already lost. Of course, that’s assuming you are a scientist”
Tite Kubo

“I wear the universe backwards.
I imagine putting stars in my
coffee, and sugar in the sky.
I imagine going fishing in clouds,
and watching the sun hide
behind lakes. I'm too busy dancing
with my imagination to even tip toe
with reality for a second.

They say I'm going mad.
They're right.”
D. Antoinette Foy

Maggie Stiefvater
“You and I both know that love is for children,'' he said. ''We're adults. Compatibility is for adults.''

''Compatibility is for my Bluetooth and my car,'' Teresa replied. ''Only they get along just fine, and my car never makes my bluetooth feel like shit.”
Maggie Stiefvater, Sinner

Shannon L. Alder
“It is a strange thing that the human species can only go three days without water and three weeks without food, before the body dies. Yet, so many people can go years hanging onto pain and feeling emotionally dead inside. I suppose if it was the other way around more people would go to school to be morticians because of the booming business, or pastors would have to hand out Valium with the sacrament, just to keep the census high.”
Shannon L. Alder

HAMLET Of nothing. Bring me to him. Hide fox, and all after!”

William Shakespeare
“POLONIUS My lord, the queen would speak with you, and presently.
HAMLET Do you see yonder cloud that's almost in shape of a camel?
POLONIUS By th'mass, and 'tis like a camel indeed.
HAMLET Methinks it is like a weasel.
POLONIUS It is backed like a weasel.
HAMLET Or like a whale?
POLONIUS Very like a whale.

“When you're and only child in a family with an only parent, you look at other, bigger families with envy. Mary Alice had a family with a station wagon, a split-level house, and a pool.
But then I looked up and saw Mary Alice's toes, as she stood at the edged of the diving board. Her second toe lay on top of her big toe on each foot. I had never seen such a thing. I wondered if Mary Alice's toes would ever prevent her from doing the things she wanted to do in life.
"Look, y'all!" she said, forming her perfect body into a perfect swan's dive. I decided then that any time I got frustrated with my overall situation in life, mad or jealous of knee socks or a pink canopy bed in a pink room, I'd take a deep breath and think about Mary Alice's toes. At least I didn't have Mary Alice's toes.”
Margaret McMullan

Jarod Kintz
“I am mad in love like fire, and I speak sushi after a night of fingernail sandwiches. Last night’s sex was so scratchy that this morning my throat is sore.”
Jarod Kintz, This Book is Not for Sale

“A fox will chew off its own foot before it calls for help
But he saw glory in being a bird with broken wings
And therefore he broke his own to fit into that illusion of false injustice
Something to rebel against
A background story he saw as grand
A painful childhood dreamt up by him alone
He saw splendor in his wounds and majesty in his scars
Which were all self-inflicted…self-proclaimed
All in attempt to be magnificent and mad
But instability doesn't call itself unstable
And a fox will chew off its own foot before it calls for help
Alas, life seemed more boundless if one had a limp
A black-eye
Or scared wrists
And instead of tattooing his story, he carved it in his own skin
With a rusty blade of self-pity and need
A dull deep need that could never be quenched no matter how deep he cut
In a black and white world he wished for all to marvel at the red he could caress out of himself
A twisted delusion of what the world would revere at
Begging with lies of pain and spasms for all to stay a little while
See him as wicked…see him as perverse…anything but ordinary
Be in awe of his self-inflicted tragedy that was his falsehood and mistaken identity
He saw glory in being a bird with broken wings
And therefore he broke his own to fit into that illusion of false injustice
He saw splendor in his wounds and grandeur in his scars
All in attempt to be magnificent and mad
But instability doesn't call itself unstable”
Yesenia Barkley

Gaston Leroux
“No, no, you have driven me mad! When I think
that I had only one object in life: to give my name to an opera wench!”
Gaston Leroux, The Phantom of the Opera

David Almond
“Weird how I can feel so frail and tiny sometimes, and other times so brave and bold and reckless and free, and . . . Does everybody feel the same? When people get grown-up, do they always feel grown-up and sensible and sorted out and . . . And do I want to feel grown-up? Do I want to stop feeling . . . paradoxical, nonsensical? Do I want to stop being crackers? Do I want to be destrangified? O yes, sometimes I want nothing more - but it only lasts a moment, then O I want to be the strangest and crakerest of everybody.”
David Almond, My Name is Mina

“You were a little bit of everything: mad, pensive, creative, handsome, delusional, electric, sad and just a person I treasured spending time with.”
