Psychopathy is locking a man in a building with serial killers for 12 years and then expecting him to be perfectly fine.
It's a lot like tossing someone into a cesspit and then complaining that they smell bad.

Well, this a quote that I remember from a novel:
"An insane person will not believe that he is insane no matter what. Instead he will believe that the whole world is insane, and that he is the only sane person."
P.S: This is only me quoting and it doesn't mean that I believe this.

"What would you have done?"

I would have said "Can we get coffee instead?" I don't think I should encourage Tony to go to a bar, or go to a bar with him.

Author — Madison Rose


It would have been bone-chilling if in the end he was actually Tony.
