About This Quote

In today's world hunger for sanity seems to be more intense than our hunger for food. In this quote from author Thomas Szasz , he stresses that people have a hunger for sanity that is just as great as their desire to have food. In other words, people want to be safe from harm and to be free from illness, pain and depression. In the book, he suggests that the root cause of insanity is the denial of civil rights.

That is, not giving people the right to do things because they are sane. So, in a way, denying rights to people who are sane gives them a taste for sanity to make up for it.
