Marguerite Sechehaye Quotes

"During the earliest attacks of Fear and intense unreality, I sometimes uttered these unconscious and shocking words: I should prefer to escape into madness to avoid this consuming fear. Alas, I did not know what I was saying. In my ignorance I believed that madness was a state of insensibility where there was neither pain nor suffering nor joy, but particularly, no responsibility. Never, for one instant, has I even imagined what to lose ones reason actually meant."

Sabrynne McLain Quotes

"And Kate thought about a time, long ago, when she had witnessed an ongoing romance between two mental patients. As a teenager watching their unlikely relationship unfold in front of her, she had understood that people did whatever they needed to do to be happy, regardless of their unfortunate circumstances. She supposed her mothers day care center was born out of the desire to feel needed, while making use of the skills that were practically all she had managed to acquire during decades of battling a debilitating illness."

Quotes About Movie Roller Coasters

"My favourite characters are people who think theyre normal but theyre not. I live in Baltimore, and its full of people like that. Ive also lived in New York, which is full of people who think theyre crazy, but theyre completely normal. I get my best material in Baltimore – you get dialogue that you just couldnt imagine. I asked this guy in a bar what he did for a living and he said he traded deer meat for crack. I never realised that job even existed. You could make a whole movie about that person. And he was kind of cute too, if you could ignore his eyes rolling around his head. Although I did crack once, accidentally, and I thought: Oh my God, what, am I gonna rob my parents now? I prefer poppers – theyre legal in London, right? I used to do them on roller coasters. Theyre illegal in Provincetown, which is the gay fishing village where I live in the summer. In the airport there are signs warning you to get rid of your poppers." - Author: John Waters
