    I’m guessing the Spycatcher worked for MI-5. Other than that, I’m coming up empty.

    I’m going to butcher this quote but here goes: “There is a sanity in being mad which none but madmen know.” 😀
    Happy New Year!! Thanks for being so awesome. Please continue that awesomeness and share it, ‘K?

      Aha! The questioner questioned. The closest I could find to your possibly butchered quotation was this:
      ‘‘I have found both freedom and safety in my madness; the freedom of being alone and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us.” Khalil Gibran
