Christopher Smart
Madness frequently discovers itself merely by unnecessary deviation from the usual modes of the world. My poor friend Smart showed the disturbance of his mind, by falling upon his knees, and saying his prayers in the street, or in any other unusual place. Now although, rationally speaking, it is greater madness not to pray at all, than to pray as Smart did, I am afraid there are so many who do not pray, that their understanding is not called in question.
Smart quotes
For I will consider my Cat Jeoffry.
For he is the servant of the Living God duly and daily serving him.
Smart
Too hard for any frog's digestion,
To have his froghood call'd in question!
