one for the front page

On this page of quotable quotes from Uranium Madhouse Official Muse Antonin Artaud, I came across this one:

There is in every madman a misunderstood genius whose idea, shining in his head, frightened people, and for whom delirium was the only solution to the strangulation that life had prepared for him.

It may or not be true, but as a provocation it’s choice. I think it will be joining the quotes from Nietzsche, Wittgenstein, Cervantes and Aristotle on the UM front page.
