The Spectrum of Sanity

Or “Snaity,” as I originally mistyped it:

Who in the rainbow can show the line where the violet tint ends and the orange tint begins?  Distinctly we see the difference of the colors, but when exactly does the one first blendingly enter into the other?  So with sanity and insanity. 

- “Billy Budd,” chapter 27, by Herman Melville

Note: This post is in no way meant to be construed as autobiographical.  Just a neat turn of phrase and image I found intriguing.
