Once they asked Van Gogh: What is your best painting?
Van Gogh said, "But I've never painted anything, so I can not say which is the best. If I have to say it's always the one I  am painting right now. But I'm not a painter: painting happens.The painter is gone when I paint. He disappeares.

A toast lunatics,
Misfits.
Rebels.
The inconvenient.
Round circles crowded into square holes.
To those who think for themselves.
The ones that are not thrilled with the rules.
And do not respect the status quo.
You can celebrate them, argue with them, quote them,
not trust them, love them or humiliate them.
Probably the only thing you can not do is ignore them.
Because they are changing the world.
They invent. They fantasize. They heal.
They are investigating. They creating. They inspire.
They push the human race forward.
Maybe you should have a line of madness.
How else you can see a blank canvas artwork?
Or in silence hear a yet unwritten poem?
Or on the red planet see a laboratory on wheels?
While some perceive them as lunatics,
we see them as genius.
For people who are crazy enough to think
they can change the world
end up being the ones they do.
Think with your head.

You can be smart and read a lot and still be mad because knowledge and wit make no wise men. To be wise is not necessary to know a lot and be intelligent. Wisdom is to know how to live life. Therefore wisdom can hide in the shepherd in the meadow, in the grandmother by the fireplace, thecleaning lady at the university of philosophy. Likewise, the madness may build the kingdom among doctors and professors, even if you knew by heart all the theology and philosophy and spoke sixteen languages. Wisdom is beyond our ordinary knowledge learned, it is what is the heart.
