Fantastic set of quotes Maria, your own not the least.
The Joker’s monologue is actually a melodramatised summary of the salient points of the philosophy of the late Scottish psychiatrist (and anti-psychiatrist) RD Laing.
The last time I read Laing was when Rjl had shared a quote on Insanity being a perfectly rational adjustment to an insane world.. .
Now I see he wrote poems too. Have you read Knots?
I’d heard he wrote poems but have never encountered them. I’ll see if Google helps.
His books and papers on psychiatry were a pleasure to read though, which is more than I can say for most of what I had to plough through at uni.
You know you couldn’t have pointed this out to me at a more apt time.
Check it out, Rexie.
Try not to cough.
While I was Googling it I ran across a quote that reminded me of a conversation we once had Maria.
This is like the knottiest thing I’ve ever read. Knots, that is.
Eeep. Anyway, yes I get that quote. So perfectly fits our conversation.
Isn’t Laing uncanny?
That just happens to be the only thing that’s wrong with me.
Uncanniest, I guess
Kya Maria, ufff! I mean, really ufff! Lol. I am only half insane. You have inspired me to desperately seek the quintessential insanity. Thank you!
Haha. Thanks. I’m glad you and Cabrogal turned the pages. 😉
Sigh, Rexie, seeking it together… quintessential insanity, yes that’s the word.<3
You are writing and putting forward great stuff nowadays. Thoda FB ko bhi aisey hi shandaar banao yaar.
Shukriya Shukriya. 😉
Glad you like what I write. The only thing I’m trying to do here nowadays is to blog freely, like I did earlier.
Used to be very active Fb peh, but ab it kinda lost its charm. Books, blog, uni. 😉 Will try best, though.
Hah I’m sure plenty of people can relate to this – cleverly put 🙂
Hey thanks Lily!
So glad you stopped by. ^_^
“How you judge me is your business.. but i make it mine”..
