#OutofOfficeQuotes 61: "The crazy thing is, when he was insane he felt happy..."
The more Hook considers his erratic behaviour, the more depressed he becomes. The crazy thing is, when he was insane he felt happy; now he’s sane it’s like everything has come crashing down. This is life’s great secret, he thinks: everyone is insane. It’s the only way humans can cope with everything.
When he thinks about it objectively, Hook’s leaving his wife for someone less wealthy, less well-connected and (to a neutral) probably less attractive. He doesn’t care. In fact, if anything, it confirms what he already knows: he’s found what he’s been looking for.
