Madness Quotes– There is only one word when people do unexpected things within the confines of reason.
However, reason is not the only gauge used to fully explore the wide usage of the term ‘madness’. In fact the subject and concept of madness has become relative. To some it is reality, to others extreme reason, inspiration/motivation/drive, romance, political necessity and plain stupidity in some cases.
