„I am interested in madness. I believe it is the biggest thing in the human race, and the most constant.“

Short Drive, Sweet Chariot (1966)
Contexto: I am interested in madness. I believe it is the biggest thing in the human race, and the most constant. How do you take away from a man his madness without also taking away his identity? Are we sure it is desirable for a man's spirit not to be at war with itself, or that it is better to be serene and ready to go to dinner than to be excited and unwilling to stop for a cup of coffee, even?
