A lunatic life

“When life itself seems lunatic, who knows where madness lies? Perhaps to be too practical is madness. To surrender dreams — this may be madness. Too much sanity may be madness — and maddest of all: to see life as it is, and not as it should be!”
Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, Don Quixote

I saw this quote on The Scarlet Pumpernickel‘s website, and wanted to make a note of it, somewhere I wouldn’t be likely to lose it (as in: not on a scrap of paper!). Here seemed a natural choice.

It reminds me of my poem ‘The Master and his Squire‘ which I penned some time ago.

  1. This! This is exactly what I needed to ignite the creative fire in my belly that was dwindling the past few days. I will sit down at this desk and proceed to write away the madness! Thank you!

    When you come to think of it – we do live lunatic lives.

    And yes, my comment still stands – the last two lines are icing – you know what I mean 🙂
