If you were a maniac of calculus what would it be? Tom M. Apostol’s or Richard Courant’s Calculus?

Do you mean learning Calculus straight from those books? I wouldn't know.

But knowing calculus from before, both are quite straightforward.

they are both excellent. apostol was writtena biut 1960 and courant about 1935. i think i would choose courant, but as a young student operhaps apostol would have been more accesible. actually spivak is the most user friendly for young students.
