We’re the Sane Ones?

“Chaston wrote that men and fairies both contain within them a faculty of reason and a faculty of magic. In men reason is strong and magic is weak. With fairies it is the other way round: magic comes very naturally to them, but by human standards they are  barely sane.” – Susanna Clarke, in Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell: A Novel
