The following are quotes:
- “We are obliged to regard many of our original minds as crazy, at least until we have become as clever as they are.”
- “The notion that the brain itself feels and thinks is a ‘revolting opinion’ reminiscent of the ‘insane author [Holbach] of the System of Nature.”
- — Mathieu Buisson (c.1802) (Ѻ), as cited by L.S. Jacyna (1987) in summary of Buisson’s criticism (Ѻ)(Ѻ) of Xavier Bichat’s 1801 theory (Ѻ) of physiological properties; note: quoted misattributed, by Jennifer Hecht (2003), to Louis de Bonald
- “Some people never go ‘crazy’. What truly horrible lives they must lead?”
- — Charles Bukowski (c.1970), Publication
- “Advancement, of course. Listen carefully. Look deep within yourself, Clarice Starling. Go seek out Miss Mofet, an old patient of mine. M-O-F-E-T. Go now, I don't think Miggs could manage again quite so soon, even though he is crazy. [shouting] Go now!”
- — Thomas Harris (1991), Silence of the Lambs (character: Hannibal Lector)
- “One day instead of (or in addition to) regular math, chemistry, physics, etc., kids in school will be learning something like one human molecule + another human molecule = ? ... it's just a crazy thought, but hey, we'll see or somebody will.”
- — Natalia Roubanenko (2006), Russian-born American language studies scholar (see: dihumanide molecule; human reproduction reaction; zerotheism for kids); commentary after reviewing 100-page manuscript of Thims' Cessation Thermodynamics, Apr 29
- “It surprises me how disinterested we are today about things like physics, space, the universe and philosophy of our existence, our purpose, our final destination. It’s a crazy world out there. Be curious.”
- “Since as a kid I was aware of the abyss (super rift) between the material and mental worlds. I tried to bridge this abyss, but could not. Yet I kept on with my own "Steigerung" as Goethe did. Then during 1982-83 I discovered empirically that the law of entropy production applies to the spiritual world as it applies to the physical world. My joy knew no bounds. I have found the bridge between these two worlds with which to cross the abyss between them. Others thought I was crazy and would not dare to publish my account. Then, in 1986, if I remember correctly, I was teaching university students the intricate calculations concerning free energy in chemical reactions. During that lecture I suddenly became aware how my mind was rushing along two levels. The lower level was concerned with chemical processes as a physical phenomenon. I executed this level almost automatically. But the higher level of my mind was exploring free energy in the process of knowing-learning as a spiritual [thermodynamics] phenomenon. I followed this level with great curiosity. I think the students became aware that I was rather absent minded that day, not perceiving my higher most thoughts. That day marks the beginning of my continual exploring of the role of free energy in the spiritulization of humankind.”

- “It may sound crazy but it is not as crazy as it sounds: a number of scholars consequently suspect that Muhammad is not a historical figure, but a literary character that was created by ancient Arab storytellers, perhaps early in the eighth century of our era.”
- — Hans Jansen (2011), “The Historicity of Muhammad”
- “I think we have found the manifesto of a crazy person.”
- “So, if we are the reactants, an endothermic relationship creates a product that is less stable than the compounds that produced it. We’ve all felt a little crazy around certain people, and more capable and even-keeled after removing ourselves from their influence. In contrast, an exothermic partnership produces love energy and makes potentially unstable reactants more stable. This is the contentment (good energy) otherwise anxious people can feel with people who calm them.”
