Depression

«God is a creation of human brain»

Durgesh Satpathy


«For someone like myself in whom the ability to trust others is so cracked and broken that I am wretchedly timid and am forever trying to read the expression on people's faces.»

Osamu Dazai


«...dread invades the living room, finds her on the couch, presses on her, gets inside her where it swiftly grows bigger than she is until she is inside it, looking out from a rind of shadow.»

Ann-Marie MacDonald


«Madness is too glamorous a term to convey what happens to most people who are losing their minds. That word is too exciting,too literary, too interesting in its connotations, to convey the boredom, the slowness, the dreariness, the dampness of depression.»

Elizabeth Wurtzel


«I'm here. I love you. I don't care if you need to stay up crying all night long, I will stay with you. If you need the medication again, go ahead and take it - I will love you through that, as well. If you don't need the medication, I will love you, too. There's nothing you can ever do to lose my love. I will protect you until you die, and after your death I will still protect you. I am stronger than Depression and I am braver than Loneliness and nothing will ever exhaust me.»

Elizabeth Gilbert


«I wanted to say all these things about how you just have to hold on to the things you love and let go of all the rest.»

Charlotte Eriksson


«She smells like spring and flowers and rain, even though it’s winter. Sometimes, he thinks he loves her so much that his mind is unable to distinguish between love and obsession. Which is worse?»

Christy A. Campbell


«The wordlessness of depression is a galling experience. You can't phone your friends, writing an e-mail is beyond you, you can't put pen to paper. The disease is a crash course in meaninglessness, lack of structure, the collapse of form.»

Gwyneth Lewis


«Depression is an imagery of our heart's sickness.»

Rizky Adam Rifai


«Let this time in your life cut you open and drain all of the things that are holding you back. I’m going to help you forgive the things that you won’t let yourself forget.»

Jennifer Elisabeth


«â€¦it seemed to Kirsch that the most reliable guide to the mental landscape of a patient was the patient himself. He was better placed to explain his behaviour and his experiences than anyone else. Yet wherever Kirsch went, the patient was the very last person anyone thought to consult. Because, of course, the patient was insane.»

Philip Sington


«The sight of such aching beauty would infuse his soul with pain.»

Tabitha Suzuma


«I bet if you cut open my stomach, the black slug of depression would slide out.»

Jasmine Warga


«There is so much pain in the world, and most of these people keep theirs secret, rolling through agonizing lives in invisible wheelchairs, dressed in invisible bodycasts.»

Andrew Solomon


«If you are chronically down, it is a lifelong fight to keep from sinking»

Elizabeth Wurtzel


«I want to celebrate the sadness that makes you feel everything so deeply.»

D. Antoinette Foy


«Viele seiner kriminellen Bekannten [...] verlachten Depressionen als Weiberkrankheiten, Wohlstandswehwehchen, die nur Schwule und Frauen bekamen. Er beneidete sie darum, dass sie die Wahrheit nicht kannten.»

Sebastian Fitzek


«From that altitude, the world looked calm and vivid and possible. But by the time we landed at Prestwick the clouds were down like the black cap on a hanging judge.»

A. Alvarez


«When you're in the middle of your depression, pay good attention to it, because, tended carefully, you never know where it might lead you.»

Gwyneth Lewis


«I lied, but by his reaction I think he liked what I had said. I had told Shreya about Sudeshna and she was okay with our relationship, but there were a few things that I hadn’t told even her…..secrets.»

Bhaskaryya Deka


«Depressed people don't end up lying in bed because they are undercommitted to goals. They end up lying in bed because they are overcommitted to goals that are failing.»

Jonathan Rottenberg


«Words were the bane of her existence. She drowned in them when all she wanted was silence, only to have them recede when one desperately-sought phrase would be the key to her salvation. Most things were like that: excess in times of abundance, and shortages in times of dearth. Life, she realized, was an unbalanced scale, and would never weigh in one's favor, struggle as one might.»

Nenia Campbell


«No matter how dark the night may get, your light will never burn out.»

Jeanette LeBlanc


«I think most readers would say the same. Most would choose Midori. And the protagonist, of course, chooses her in the end. But some part of him is always in the other world and he cannot abandon it. It’s a part of him, an essential part. All human beings have a sickness in their minds. That space is a part of them.»

Haruki Murakami


«Casy said, "Ol' Tom's house can't be more'n a mile from here. Ain't she over that third rise?"»

John Steinbeck


«Always remember, child... that to think bad thoughts is really the easiest thing in the world. If you leave your mind to itself it will spiral you down into ever increasing unhappiness. To think good thoughts, however, requires effort. This is one onf the things that discipline - training - is about.»

James Clavell


«If I had an .MP3 of your heartbeat… I might actually get some sleep.»

Jennifer Elisabeth


«I wonder now whether inner coldness and desolation may not be the pre-condition for making the world believe, by a kind of fraudulent showmanship, that one's own wretched heart is still aglow.»

W.G. Sebald


«I once read in my physics book that the universe begs to be observed, that energy travels and transfers when people pay attention. Maybe that's what love really boils down to--having someone who cares enough to pay attention so that you're encouraged to travel and transfer, to make your potential energy spark into kinetic energy.»

Jasmine Warga


«Bouncing on beds, I remember from childhood, is a great depression reliever.»
