"I know he's going to heaven because he's already been to hell"

"In Daniel's life everywhere he's gone he leaves this incredible wake behind of creation and destruction. He's done all kinds of things both bad and good, but they're all mythic and they're all barely believable yet they're all true. And the kinds of things that he's done in his career are the kinds of things someone would only do if they were so self-sabotaging that it was completely mystifying. But in terms of creating a legend, he's done absolutely everything right."
- From the documentary The Devil and Daniel Johnston about a gifted bipolar musician and artist.

Matthew Good  also has bipolar disorder and is a fan.
