An aphorism is nothing else but the slightest
form of writing raised to the highest level of expressive communication. Carl William Brown





Nothing is poetical if plain daylight is not poetical; and no monster should amaze us if the normal man does not amaze.


Gilbert K. Chesterton (1874-1936, British author)


Every day of my life, I feel fat. It's not correct thinking in the natural, normal human being's way of life.


Angie Everhart (1969-, American model, actress)


Normal is not something to aspire to, it's something to get away from.


Jodie Foster (1962-, American actress, director, producer)


Every normal person, in fact, is only normal on the average. His ego approximates to that of the psychotic in some part or other and to a greater or lesser extent.


Sigmund Freud (1856-1939, Austrian physician, founder of Psychoanalysis)


Normality highly values its normal man. It educates children to lose themselves and to become absurd, and thus to be normal. Normal men have killed perhaps 100, 000 of their fellow normal men in the last fifty years.


R. D. Laing (1927-1989, British psychiatrist)
