Aphorism of the Day...

... was expressed by Ravikiran in a mail -

Insanity is much more common than is commonly assumed. I always used to hate the Freudian style of offering psychiatric diagnoses as arguments. ( i.e. instead of asking "Why do you support the war?", you ask "Did you have some psychological trauma in childhood that makes you support violence?") But it is becoming increasingly clear to me that a knowledge of insanity is much more important to understand human beings than I thought.
