“Seductively complicated, a distillation both of what is finest in our natures, and of what is most dangerous. In order to contend with it, I first had to know it in all of its moods and infinite disguises, understand its real and imagined powers. Because my illness seemed at first simply to be an extension of myself- that is to say, of my ordinarily changeable moods, energies, and enthusiasms- I perhaps gave it at times too much quarter.” Kay Redfield Jameson in her book An Unquiet Mind
