The line between inspiration and insanity

I stumbled upon this very interesting article after just watching a TV show.  I happened to be flipping through the channels and stumbled upon a kidnapping scene where the kidnapped prisoner tells the bad guy that, he was “INSANE.” The kidnapper said such an amazing quote, I felt that I had to google who the real author was.

The quote that took me to this article was “The difference between insanity and belief; lies only in the number of the believers.”

Wow, that sort of took my mind to the current primary elections. Get it?Groupies=believers? All kidding (but not kidding on that topic) aside, the “quote” took me to this controversial religious discussion.

By the way, I never found out who originated that quote. 🙂

    The person who said that was Baron Reiter from the TV show Arrow. I love that quote too.

      Thank you. A friend of mine told me that this concept was taught in a world religion class at the college she went to. Makes you go, hmm.

    I enjoyed this. As a writer prone to these symptoms, I’m inclined to believe this ‘line’ is a very fine one indeed.
    Thank you, my dear.
