Famous quotes containing the word madness:

    We know that madness belongs to love,—what power to paint a vile object in hues of heaven.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The multiplication of individual sects should not fool us: the important point is that the whole of America is preoccupied with the sect as a moral institution, with its immediate demand for beatification, its material efficacity, its compulsion for justification, and doubtless also with its madness and frenzy.
    Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)

    The eye-balls were seared with a milky mucus;
    The madness of a dying soul
    Was written on her face—
    But the multitude saw why she wore the bandage.”
    Edgar Lee Masters (1869–1950)
