β€œIn depression . . . faith in deliverance, in ultimate restoration, is absent. The pain is
unrelenting, and what makes the condition intolerable is the foreknowledge that no remedy
will come -- not in a day, an hour, a month, or a minute. . . . It is hopelessness even
more than pain that crushes the soul.”

"Mysteriously and in ways that are totally remote from natural experience, the gray
drizzle of horror induced by depression takes on the quality of physical pain.”
