Levantine Wisdom

“There is a fine line between genius and insanity. I have erased that line.” — Oscar Levant


Writer, actor & musician, though I haven't be paid for the latter two in several years, hailing from the land of the Whiskey Rebellion--where these days the government has a monopoly on the sale of alcohol yet manages to lose money every year. That's all the education anyone should need on Liberalism.

  1. Would it be too much to ask to have a bit of both?
    Genius will pay the bills, and insanity can be a swell excuse for having lots of fun.

    Genius guarantees some insanity. Insanity guarantees nothing.


  3. Yeah…and isn’t there some torment in there, too?

    I mean, you always read something to the effect that, “…his soul tormented, he continued working on his magnum opus mathematical theorem while freezing to death from self-neglect!”

    I think a well-balanced human need all three – genius, insanity, and some good ol’ classic torment to keep them … um …well …. wait …..

    Can I get just a little peril?
