Genius and the crazies (post by Amy)

I've always heard that there is a fine line between genius and insanity, but from what I've read of the composers we're studying, it seems like there is no line at all. Schumann's schizophrenia in particular stands out, but others of his era were crazy in their own right. I've always wondered how these composers could produce such beautiful music and sensitive interpretation and still be crazy as loons. Any thoughts?
