Quotations and aphorisms by Daniel Johnston:
I wish I had never got manic depression. When I was in junior high, I didn’t know what was the matter with me. It was as if I’d died or something. Now that I go to a clinic and get the right kind of medicine, I am not as depressed as I used to be.
For the longest time I was afraid I’d have to keep on working at the factories. There was a steel mill and a pottery; if you didn’t go to college, you went to work in those places.
