I was born after madness.  I start from there.  My life is the going-beyond madness; insanity is axiomatic, and I am the theorem.

This by Lucy Russell, granddaughter of Bertrand Russell.  She wrote it in 1970, the year of his death.  On 11 April 1975, at age 26, she committed suicide, by self-immolation, in a rural English churchyard.
