    I prefer to say it the way Shakespeare did: "Though this seems madness, yet there is method in't" (more blank stares though )

    I have seen a slight variation to this one in the US -
    There is method TO his madness ("to" instead of "in").

    "A method to his madness" is the phrase I have always heard.
