“I have the impression of moving in the shadow of syllables, in regions before secrets, where language cannot yet answer the call of thought, in swamps where you risk sinking with every breath.” — Edmond Jabès, The Book of Questions: Volume I (trans. Rosmarie Waldrop)

"I am crazy"

fou / mad
It frequently occurs to the amorous subject that he or she is going mad.

1. I am mad to be in love, I am not mad to be able to say so, I double my image: insane in my own eyes (I know my delirium), simply unreasonable in the eyes of someone else, to whom I quite sanely describe my madness: conscious of this madness, sustaining a discourse upon it.

— Roland Barthes, A Lover’s Discourse: Fragments (trans. Richard Howard)
