    “A time is coming when men will go mad, and when they see someone who is not mad, they will attack him, saying, ‘You are mad; you are not like us.”

    ― St. Antony the Great

    He said this in about 300 AD!

      A variation of this is, “Everyone is crazy except me and thee and sometimes I’m not so sure about thee.” I don’t know where it came from.

    “It was the best of times, it was THE WORST OF TIMES, it was the age of wisdom, it was THE AGE OF FOOLISHNESS, it was THE EPOCH OF BELIEF, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was THE SEASON OF DARKNESS, it was the spring of hope, it was THE WINTER OF DESPAIR, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way–in short, THE PERIOD WAS SO FAR LIKE THE PRESENT PERIOD, that SOME OF ITS NOISIEST AUTHORITIES INSISTED ON ITS BEING RECEIVED, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.”
    Charles Dickens, Tale of two cities
