A Note of Madness

Tabitha Suzuma

Top 10 Best Quotes

“But whichever form it took it brought with it, in those moments of bitter anguish, such a desperate surge of hope that it was almost untouchable, and flitted away like a golden butterfly into the bright blue sky - beautiful, unreachable and completely transistent.”

“I would give anything to escape myself, Flynn thought, just for a day, just for a minute even. Just to know what it was like to think differently, to feel differently, and to not be me.”

“The sight of such aching beauty would infuse his soul with pain.”

“Anyway, what does mad mean exactly?" Rami added quickly "Aren't we all a little mad? Don't we have to be somehat mad just to go on living, to go on hoping?”

“Anyway, what does mad mean exactly? Aren't we all a little mad? Don't we have to be somewhat mad just to go on living, to go on hoping?”

“Here’s to getting reacquainted with your own feelings. Here’s to being able to want, without being sure you’re going to get. To risk being hurt and to risk being rejected. Here’s to life.” - Rami”

“You won’t find happiness by hiding from life, Flynn” - Rami”

“You can’t help me, nobody can. You’ll never understand. You have no idea what it is like to be inside my body, my brain, my mind! Trying to describe my life and feelings to you is like trying to describe colours to the blind, or music to the deaf. It’s simply not possible. We may exist side by side, we may share the same blood, the same upbringing, but our minds exist in different worlds.”

“What the hell’s going on?” Rami demanded. “They won’t let me go!” Flynn yelled. “Get them off me, Rami, get them off me!” “Hold on, old chap. What on earth’s going on, Harry?” Whispering voices. “Get off me!” Flynn raged. More whispers. Then Rami’s hand on the back of his head, Rami’s face leaning down, wide-eyed, sweaty, a little out of breath. “OK, listen mate. I’m going to ask them to get off you on one condition. That you sit up and only sit up, not stand. If you stand up then both Harry and I will knock you to the floor and we’ll have to start all over again.” “Why?” Flynn yelled. “Why?” “It’s for your own good. ...”

“OK, listen, this is what we’re going to do,” Rami said at last. “You’re going to come downstairs, get into the car with me and we’re going to drive back to Watford.” Flynn lifted his head. “No!” he began to protest. “Actually, Flynn, this is not open to discussion. If you won’t come back with me, I’ll have to take you to hospital.” “I’m not going to hospital,” he said desperately. “You can’t make me! Just let go of me, just leave me alone”! He tried to pull away, but his arms felt weak. “Flynn, if we call an ambulance, they’ll section you.” “Why? They can’t do that! They can’t!” “They can and they will because right now you’re a danger to yourself.” Flynn put his forehead back on his knees and bit his thumb hard. He just wished he could go back in time to before the argument, before the dinner, before Rami’s phone call, before this morning’s practice. How could the events of one day have ended in this? “Don’t call an ambulance,” he whispered. “Are you going to come back to Watford with me?” He nodded. Defeated.”
