„Madness is never that far away. It's as close as saying yes to the wrong impulse.“

—  Jim Carrey

Jim Carrey's Unnatural Act (1991)
Kontext: Madness is never that far away. It's as close as saying yes to the wrong impulse. The people who stay sane are the people who can make those quick decisions: "Should I stick my fingers into the fan, or leave the room right now?
"Should I run the blade of this razor across my tongue, or just finish shaving and move away from the sink?"
But you don't because luckily most of us have that little voice inside our head that says, "Uh uh uh, turning the car into oncoming traffic... is counterproductive!"

„You can never say the wrong thing.“

Kontext: "It's not a matter of right and wrong," Mr. Whittier would say. Really, there is no wrong. Not in our minds. Our own reality. You can never set off to do the wrong thing. You can never say the wrong thing. In your own mind, you are always right. Every action you take--what you do or say or how you choose to appear--is automatically right the moment you act.

„And those people should not be listened to who keep saying the voice of the people is the voice of God, since the riotousness of the crowd is always very close to madness.“

—  Alcuin English scholar and abbot 735 - 804

Variant translation: We should not listen to those who like to affirm that the voice of the people is the voice of God, for the tumult of the masses is truly close to madness.
Works, Epistle 127 (to Charlemagne, AD 800)
Original: (la) Nec audiendi qui solent dicere, vox populi, vox Dei, quum tumultuositas vulgi semper insaniae proxima sit.
