Well, maybe ...

Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr. said: “Insanity is often the logic of an accurate mind overtasked. Good mental machinery ought to break its own wheels and levers, if anything is thrust among them suddenly which tends to stop them or reverse their motion. A weak mind does not accumulate force enough to hurt itself; stupidity often saves a man from going mad.”

From Tim


  1. Indeed, for reasons given by Holmes, I will not go mad .... but senility lurks ..... and so it goes .....

  2. Oh stop it. You seem perfectly cogent. And me I went right to the madness part, but not for the reasons given by him because I fall on the weak mind side of his equation lol
