1 Unconscious cerebration was doing its work, even with the lunatic.
2 How well the man reasoned; lunatics always do within their own scope.
3 I never saw a lunatic in such a paroxysm of rage before; and I hope I shall not again.
4 It is a new experience to me to find a lunatic who talk philosophy, and reason so sound.
5 As we came to the door we heard the lunatic within singing gaily, as he used to do in the time which now seems so long ago.
6 She knew, of course, that the place was a lunatic asylum, but I could see that she was unable to repress a shudder when we entered.
7 There are but few houses close at hand, one being a very large house only recently added to and formed into a private lunatic asylum.
8 It is wonderful, however, what intellectual recuperative power lunatics have, for within a few minutes he stood up quite calmly and looked around him.
9 Thus departed for this time my chance of much learning from this so clever lunatic; so I shall go, if I may, and cheer myself with a few happy words with that sweet soul Madam Mina.
10 Since I myself have been an inmate of a lunatic asylum, I cannot but notice that the sophistic tendencies of some of its inmates lean towards the errors of non causa and ignoratio elenchi.
11 There was an unusual understanding of himself, which was unlike anything I had ever met with in a lunatic; and he took it for granted that his reasons would prevail with others entirely sane.
12 If that man had been an ordinary lunatic I would have taken my chance of trusting him; but he seems so mixed up with the Count in an indexy kind of way that I am afraid of doing anything wrong by helping his fads.
13 I had a growing conviction that this sudden change of his entire intellectual method was but yet another form or phase of his madness, and so determined to let him go on a little longer, knowing from experience that he would, like all lunatics, give himself away in the end.
