"Do you think I care whether the doctors and the hospital board decide I am sane or insane? I don't care tuppence about nice quiet friends. Mine is not going to be that kind of existence. I want to live, to feel. I was born for something more than mere sanity. I was born for so much joy. A great possibility of joy. More than you could ever imagine."     - From 'The Ha-Ha'.
