Everything that ever gets done in this world is done by madmen … Men such as I am, such as you may possibly become, have never achieved anything. We’re too sane; we’re merely reasonable. … Whenever the choice has had to be made between the man of reason and the madman, the world has unhesitatingly followed the madman. For the madman appeals to what is fundamental, to passion and the instincts; the philosophers to what is superficial and supererogatory — reason.

-Aldous Huxley, Crome Yellow
