Madness Quotes

Dictionary definition of madness is – insanity. This means a lost sense of saneness. Madness can also be exciting when it makes you do crazy but fun things. But, when madness leads to a condition called psychosis, it becomes a serious problem where the patient has no control of his movements and speech. It is an abnormal state of mind which requires treatment and when left untreated for long it can lead to delusions and hallucinations. To differentiate between fun-crazy and psychotic-crazy, read the following madness quotes!
