A common definition of sanity is”the ability to think and behave in a normal and rational manner”…its society’s way for us to conform to acceptable expectations … however our inner feelings are not always rational and often desires to move in its own direction… it does risk the possibility of being considered abnormal or a misfit… a sign of liberation is not to be threatened by misleading labels.

“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”. ~Steve Jobs
