1. "VERSO DECORATIVOLa niña vio a la luna en el azul estanqueQue en medio de los pinos servía de pecera.(Piernas de cazadora, suelta la cabellera,Y el fino seno blanco celoso de su arranque).De un elástico salto llegó junto a la fuente,Hundió las blancas manos, tomó el disco de oro,Y al cargar junto al cuello el redondo tesoro,La cabellera negra se le tornó luciente.Y huyó bajo las selvas. Su grito de alegríaHasta los dulces nidos de las aves subía,E, iluminando el bosque perfumado, la vieron,Cargada de la luna, pasar los abedules,Y siguiendo en el aire la curva de sus tulesEjércitos de pájaros cantando la siguieron."
Author: Alfonsina Storni
2. "His act was rather that of a harmless lunatic than an enemy. We were not so new to the country as not to know that the solitary life of many a plainsman had a tendency to develop eccentricities of conduct and character not always easily distinguishable from mental aberration. A man is like a tree: in a forest of his fellows he will grow as straight as his generic and individual nature permits; alone, in the open, he yields to the deforming stresses and tortions that environ him."
Author: Ambrose Bierce

5. "Nature seems to exult in abounding radicality, extremism, anarchy. If we were to judge nature by its common sense or likelihood, we wouldn't believe the world existed. In nature, improbabilities are the one stock in trade. The whole creation is one lunatic fringe...No claims of any and all revelations could be so far-fetched as a single giraffe."
Author: Annie Dillard
6. "Ma mère s'occupait plutôt de l'épicerie, mon père du café. D'un coté la bousculade de midi, le temps minuté, les clientes n'aiment pas attendre, c'est un monde debout, aux volontés multiples, une bouteille de bière, un paquet d'épingles neige, méfiant, à rassurer constamment, vous verrez cette marque-là c'est bien meilleur. Du théâtre, du bagout. Ma mère sortait lessivée, rayonnante, de sa boutique. De l'autre côté, les petits verres pépères, la tranquillité assise, le temps sans horloge, des hommes installés là pour des heures. Inutile de se précipiter, pas besoin de faire l'article ni même la conversation, les clients causent pour deux. Ça tombe bien, mon père est lunatique, c'est ma mère qui le dit."
Author: Annie Ernaux
7. "Lovers, Lunatics and poets are made of same stuff."
Author: Bhagat Singh
8. "Una científica compañera mía me contaba un reciente viaje que realizó a la meseta de Nueva Guinea, donde visitó una tribu todavía en la edad de piedra que apenas había tenido contactos con la civilización. Ignoraban lo que son los relojes de pulsera, las bebidas refrescantes y los alimentos congelados. Pero conocían el Apolo 11. Sabían que los humanos han pisado la Luna."
Author: Carl Sagan
9. "Good sense travels on the well-worn paths; genius, never. And that is why the crowd, not altogether without reason, is so ready to treat great men as lunatics."
Author: Cesare Lombroso
10. "Hunter was bipolar, for crying out loud. He had checked into the nut house on more than one occasion and, honestly, I was already starting to feel the anxiety of living together. I would need to get my martial arts skills up to par to deal with this lunatic. I knew that I would also need to pick up a copy of Kill Bill at my next convenience and take notes as I watched, just in case a fight happened to break out in the kitchen. Also, at night, I had decided that I would need to sleep with either a small pistol or a flamboyant hunting knife under my pillow for a quick grab, in case he skipped his meds one night and decided to kill me. I needed to be prepared for the unthinkable."
Author: Chase Brooks
11. "I swear to God, if you saw me when I am by myself in the woods, I'm a lunatic. I sing, I dance."
Author: Chris Evans
12. "Men are mad most of their lives; few live sane, fewer die so. The acts of people are baffling unless we realize that their wits are disordered. Man is driven to justice by his lunacy."
Author: Edward Dahlberg
13. "The notion is that human beings are born, (as my Guru has explained many times,) with equivalent potential for both contraction and expansion. The ingredients of both darkness and light are equally present in all of us, and then it's up to the individual (or the family, or the society) to decide what will be brought forth - the virtues or the malevolence. The madness of this planet is largely a result of human being's difficulty in coming into virtuous balance with himself. Lunacy (both collective and individual) results."
Author: Elizabeth Gilbert
14. "The irony of talking to animals and an imaginary girlfriend, who keep me sane, even though I know I look like a raving lunatic, isn't lost on me."
Author: Elyse Draper
15. "When we were small, Rose and I used to play a game called connect the dots. I loved it. I loved drawing a line from dot number 1 to dot number 2 and so on. Most of all, I loved the moment when the chaotic sprinkle of dots resolved itself into a picture.That's what stories do. They connect the random dots of life into a picture. But it's all an illusion. Just try to connect the dots of life. You'll end up with a lunatic scribble."
Author: Franny Billingsley
16. "Apenas había tenido tiempo de identificarlo como un delfín cuando me encontré en medio de una manada. Se elevaron a mi alrededor suspirando con fuerza, brillantes sus negros lomos al arquearse a la luz de la luna. Debían ser unos ocho, y uno salió tan cerca que con nadar tres brazadas podría haber tocado su cabeza de ébano. Jugando entre saltos y resoplidos cruzaron la bahía, y yo les seguí a nado, contemplando cómo subían a la superficie, respiraban hondo y volvían a zambullirse, dejando sólo un creciente anillo de espuma en el agua arrugada. Finalmente, y como obedeciendo a una señal, se volvieron y enfilaron hacia la boca de la bahía y la lejana costa de Albania; yo me erguí para verlos alejarse, nadando por el blanco surco de luz, con un centelleo en el lomo al elevarse y dejarse caer pesadamente en el agua templada. Tras ellos quedó una estela de grandes burbujas que temblaban y relucían un instante cual lunas en miniatura antes de desaparecer bajo las ondas."
Author: Gerald Durrell
17. "If women understand by emancipation the adoption of the masculine role then we are lost indeed. If women can supply no counterbalance to the blindness of male drive the aggressive society will run to its lunatic extremes at ever-escalating speed. Who will safeguard the despised animal faculties of compassion, empathy, innocence and sensuality?"
Author: Germaine Greer
18. "The place where optimism most flourishes is the lunatic asylum."
Author: Havelock Ellis
19. "Whatever it is, it can't possibly be as important as the Italian Concerto. Now let's get to work."We work for three and a half hell-bent hours, until the keys are literally smeared with blood and my mind has been bleached to a glorious blankness, a lunar eclipse of the soul. The music is a castle I conjure around myself, a fortress of notes no feeling can storm."
Author: Hilary T. Smith
20. "Si me preguntaban mi nacionalidad, debía dar largas explicaciones y dibujar un mapa para demostrar que Chile no quedaba en el centro de Asia, sino en el sur de América. A menudo lo confundían con China, porque el nombre sonaba parecido. Los belgas, acostumbrados a la idea de las colonias en África, solían sorprenderse de que mi marido pareciera inglés y yo nofuera negra; alguna vez me preguntaron por qué no usaba el traje típico, que tal vez imaginaban como los vestidos deCarmen Miranda en las películas de Hollywood: falda a lunares y un canasto con piñas en la cabeza."
Author: Isabel Allende
21. "I stopped examining myself in the mirror to compare myself to the perfect beauties of movies and magazines; I decided I was beautiful-- for the simple reason that I wanted to be. And then never gave the matter a second thought. -Eva Luna"
Author: Isabel Allende

Gnome saliva is enormously beneficial!" said Mr. Lovegood, seizing Luna's outstretched finger and examining the bleeding puncture marks. "Luna, my love, if you should feel any burgeoning talent today — perhaps an unexpected urge to sing opera or to declaim in Mermish — do not repress it! You may have been gifted by the Gernumblies!"Ron, passing them in the opposite direction, let out a loud snort."
Author: J.K. Rowling

Author: Jane Harvey Berrick
26. "The little toy piped on and into "London Bridge" in the same cheerfully lunatic tone. It was enough to make anyone crazy, but it probably had an extra effect on someone like MacGregor who lived for children. At any rate, I certainly hoped so. I had quite deliberately chosen the little keyboard to lure him out, and I sincerely hoped, in fact, that he would think he had been found out—and that a toy had come from Hell to punish him. After all, why shouldn't I enjoy what I do?"
Author: Jeff Lindsay
27. "I'm a Christian-libertarian-environmentalist-capitalist-lunatic. It's a humorous way for me to describe that I'm not stereotypical."
Author: Joel Salatin
28. "All my work will explode inside my body, each fragment of my anatomy will acquire a life of its own, outside mine, Humberto won't exist, only these monsters, the despot who imprisoned me at La Rinconada to force me to invent him, Ines's honey complexion, Brigida's death, Iris Mateluna's hysterical pregnancy, the saintly girl who was never beatified, Humberto Penaloza's father pointing out Don Jeronimo dressed up to go to the Jockey Club, and your benign, kind hand, Mother Benita, that does not and will not let go of mine, and your attention fixed on these words of a mute, and your rosaries, the Casa's La Rinconada as it once was, as it is now, as it was afterwards, the escape, the crime, all of it alive in my brain, Peta Ponce's prism refracting and confusing everything and creating simultaneous and contradictory planes, everything without ever reaching paper, because I always hear voices and laughter enveloping and tying me up."
Author: José Donoso
29. "— Il grasso Taskinar!Il nome corse di bocca in bocca. Sì! il grasso Taskinar! Era conosciutissimo! La sua corpulenza aveva fornito l'argomento di più di un articolo ai giornali dell'Unione. Non so più quale matematico aveva perfino dimostrato, con certi suoi calcoli trascendentali, che la sua massa era abbastanza grande da influenzare quella del nostro satellite e da turbare, in proporzione apprezzabile, gli elementi dell'orbita lunare."
Author: Jules Verne

Author: Ksenia Anske
32. "I'm not scared, though. Norman has kind of thick glasses, and I bet he couldn't actually hit anything, even with a machine-gun, which even a lunatic like Norman is allowed to buy in this country thanks to our totally unrestrictive gun laws, which Michael Moscovitz says in his webzine will ultimately result in the demise of democracy as we know it."
Author: Meg Cabot
33. "Havin' fun while freedom fightin' must be one of those lunatic Texas traits we get from the water - which is known to have lithium in it - because it goes all the way back to Sam Houston, surely the most lovable, the most human, and the funniest of all the great men this country has ever produced."
Author: Molly Ivins
34. "Hands, teeth, gut, thoughts even, were all simply more or less convenient to human circumstance, as my father was receding from human circumstance, so, too, were all of these particulars, back to some unknowable froth where they might be reassigned to be stars or belt buckles, lunar dust or railroad spikes. Perhaps they already were all of these things and my father's fading was because he realized this: My goodness, I am made from planets and wood, diamonds and orange peels ..."
Author: P. Harding
35. "Jack was already mother-naked when he heard the cry and saw the splash. He slipped from the gunwale into the clear water, made out the vague form at a surprising depth, dived, fished it up, swam to the ship, now a hundred yards away, roared for a line, passed the inanimate Herapath up the side, and followed himself. 'Mr Pullings,'he cried, very angry. 'Put an end to this infernal hallooing instantly. Always the same God-damned foolery, every time a man goes overboard. Damn you all for a mob of mad lunatics. Get along forward. Silence fore and aft."
Author: Patrick O'Brian
36. "Entre lo poco que sé de la vida, también te diré que nada de todo esto vale la pena sin alguien que te haga ser incoherente.Ni flores, ni velas, ni luz de luna. Ése es el verdadero romanticismo. Alguien que llegue, te empuje a hacer cosas de las que jamás te creíste capaz y que arrase de un plumazo con tus principios, tus valores, tus yo nunca, tus yo qué va."
Author: Risto Mejide
37. "MusingsThe little poets sing of little things:Hope, cheer, and faith, small queens and puppet kings;Lovers who kissed and then were made as one,And modest flowers waving in the sun.The mighty poets write in blood and tearsAnd agony that, flame-like, bites and sears.They reach their mad blind hands into the night,To plumb abysses dead to human sight;To drag from gulfs where lunacy lies curled,Mad, monstrous nightmare shapes to blast the world.[click on the thumbnail by Jack "King" Kirby]"
Author: Robert E. Howard
38. "In the business I meet some beautiful women, but to be honest, 80 per cent of them are raving lunatics and are to be avoided. It's just insecurity; actors are generally quite insecure. I wouldn't date, or I've never had a fling with an actress, and I'd quite like to keep it that way."
Author: Rory McCann
39. "No se le permitió a nadie perderse el parestésico paréntesis de aquel histórico día en que los despiadados seres puros de la raza inhumana enviaban un hombre a la luna."

40. "I walked over, my eyes scanning Luna Blu, my house, and Dave's. But it was the building behind them, that empty hotel, that had the tiniest light, provided by one word, written in fluorescent paint. Maybe it wasn't what was once there, in real life. But in this one, it said it all: STAY."
Author: Sarah Dessen
41. "That's a sweet piece," said Jean, briefly forgetting to be aggravated. "You didn't snatch that off a street.""No," said Locke, before taking another deep draught of the warm water in the decanter. "I got it from the neck of the governor's mistress.""You can't be serious.""In the governor's manor.""Of all the -" "In the governor's bed.""Damned lunatic!""With the governor sleeping next to her."The night quiet was broken by the high, distant trill of a whistle, the traditional swarming noise of city watches everywhere. Several other whistles joined in a few moments later."It is possible," said Locke with a sheepish grin, "that I have been slightly too bold."
Author: Scott Lynch
42. "You are beyond mad," said Locke after several moments of silent, furious thought. "Full-on barking madness is a state of rational bliss to which you may not aspire. Men living in gutters and drinking their own piss would shun your company. You are a prancing lunatic."

Author: Suzanne Collins
49. "And on the moon there is surely water...And up there, if water exists, and air, then so does life. A life perhaps different from ours. Perhaps that water has the flavor of (let us say) glycyrrhizin, or cardamon, or even of pepper. If there are infinite worlds, this proves the infinite ingenuity of the Engineer of our Universe, but then there is no limit to this Poet. He can have created inhabited worlds everywhere, but inhabited by ever-different creatures. Perhaps the inhabitants of the sun are sunnier, brighter, and more illuminated than are the inhabitants of the earth, who are heavy with matter, and the inhabitants of the moon lie somewhere in between. On the sun live beings who are all Form, or all Act, if you prefer, while on the earth beings are made of mere Potentials that evolve, and on the moon they are in medio fluctuantes, lunatics, so to speak..."
Author: Umberto Eco
50. "The lunatic's visions of horror are all drawn from the material of daily fact. Our civilization is founded on the shambles, and every individual existence goes out in a lonely spasm of helpless agony."
