Writers, especially poets, are particularly prone to madness. There exists a striking association between creativity and manic depression.
Why are more creative people prone to madness? They have more than average amounts of energies and abilities to see things in a fresh and original way – then because they also have depression, I think they’re more in touch with human suffering.
Terrific. Terrible. Tricky.
If writers wrote as carelessly as some people talk. Then jdskjsdjhaksjadhdkjds!
What’s up with this madness anyway? Yea, somehow I agree. But, seriously, writers being mad? You know what, it just shows that they were far more better than other people since they have compassion enough to think and try to change the world with their own ideas. And I guess that made some of them stupid enough too, since seriously, who can change the world with all these ideas and sheeez?
Probably none. Not even me. Not even through this stupid blog site.
But, when you think of it, writers made us understand more about life than what we see and what we accept. It broadens our narrow minds and it gives us a lot of ideas to actually see the real world.
And if that makes them mad, I guess we are all too.
Since we won’t have these ideas going on in our heads if we think they were mad, isn’t it?
