Insane Genius

Van Gogh, Insanely Genius

Why Are Genius and Madness Connected? | Creativity and Mental Illness | LiveScience.

When one thinks of it, it makes sense that genius and madness are connected – different sides of the same coin.  How else could such genius of the likes of one-eared artist Van Gogh, mathematician Pythagoras, renowned artist of the Sistine Chapel Michelangelo, physicist and engineer Nikola Tesla, and more, who were able to bring to life such wonders from the power of their mind.
