Thank You, I Understand by Etienne de L'Amour
“He had been diagnosed as suffering from atypical schizophrenia. Lord, how he hated that awful-sounding label. It conjured up visions of some deranged maniac escaped from a secure mental hospital.”
Etienne de L'Amour

“Knowing that you're crazy doesn't make the crazy things stop happening.”
Mark Vonnegut, The Eden Express: A Memoir of Insanity

Louis Sachar
“Toni hears voices," said Trapp. "But who is this Dr. Ellsworth to tell her she's a schizophrenic? Maybe she just perceives better than the rest of us. Maybe the voices she hears are just uncommunicated ideas, floating free.”
Louis Sachar

Emilie Autumn
“Oh, and I certainly don't suffer from schizophrenia. I quite enjoy it. And so do I.”
Emilie Autumn

Edgar Allan Poe
“I have absolutely no pleasure in the stimulants in which I sometimes so madly indulge. It has not been in the pursuit of pleasure that I have periled life and reputation and reason. It has been the desperate attempt to escape from torturing memories, from a sense of insupportable loneliness and a dread of some strange impending doom.”
Edgar Allan Poe

Edgar Allan Poe
“From childhood's hour I have not been. As others were, I have not seen. As others saw, I could not awaken. My heart to joy at the same tone. And all I loved, I loved alone.”
Edgar Allan Poe
