The last quote is by me, let me try to explain the quote: To become great and successful one needs to be mad about something. That one thing can be anything; for example you may want to excel in studies or want to make more money.

A touch of madness will only help. To put my point more strongly let me quote Steve Jobs who once famously said at the 2005 Stanford Commencement Address to "Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish".
