“Being crazy isn't enough.” Dr. Seuss

Nope. Just plain crazy won’t get you anywhere. Add talented (creative or intellectual) and we are getting into the realm of the tortured artist or genius but who really wants to be Poe or Dr. Frankenstein?

What you need to do is toss in a boat load of cash. Crazy, creative, intelligent and more money than the Catholic Church and now we are talking! Take home lesson? Don’t be crazy unless you are a trust fund baby. Got it?

“Keeping up the appearance of having all your marbles is hard work, but important.” Sara Gruen, Water for Elephants

"If I were to say, "You are crazy!", what part of that would you find unacceptable?"

"I didn't decide I was crazy until 1952.  That's when I began making a steady salary and could afford to be crazy." Allan Sherman

"Insane people are always sure that they are fine.  It is only the sane people who are willing to admit that they are crazy." Nora Ephron

“Of course I'm crazy, but that doesn't mean I'm wrong.” Robert Anton Wilson

“Genius is more often found in a cracked pot than in a whole one.” Elwyn Brooks White
