Favorite Schizoid Quotes

1. "I am not schizoid. A little manic-depressive, maybe.""'Know thyself.'" "We try, sir."

2. "What we call ‘normal' is a product of repression, denial, splitting, projection, introjection and other forms of destructive action on experience. It is radically estranged from the structure of being. The more one sees this, the more senseless it is to continue with generalized descriptions of supposedly specifically schizoid, schizophrenic, hysterical ‘mechanisms.' There are forms of alienation that are relatively strange to statistically ‘normal' forms of alienation. The ‘normally' alienated person, by reason of the fact that he acts more or less like everyone else, is taken to be sane. Other forms of alienation that are out of step with the prevailing state of alienation are those that are labeled by the ‘formal' majority as bad or mad."
Author: R.D. Laing
3. "Schizoid behavior is a pretty common thing in children. It's accepted, because all we adults have this unspoken agreement that children are lunatics."
Author: Stephen King
4. "Places are supposed to look smaller when you go back to them, but my road just looked schizoid. A couple of the houses had had nifty little makeovers involving double glazing and amusing faux-antique pastel paint; most of them hadn't. Number 16 looked like it was on its last legs: the roof was in tatters, there was a pile of bricks and a dead wheelbarrow by the front steps, and at some point in the last twenty years someone had set the door on fire. In Number 8, a window on the first floor was lit up, gold and cozy and dangerous as hell."
Author: Tana French
5. "To those of us who survived [...], it also means that we have learned to stand outside our history and watch it, without feeling too much. A little schizoid."
Author: Thomas Pynchon
