    [However], the sufferer from depression has no option, and therefore finds himself, like a walking casualty of war, thrust into the most intolerable social and family situations.

He must try to utter small talk and be responsive to questions, and knowingly nod, and frown and, God help him, even smile.
    — William Styron

    In 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.

Everybody lived in the tents, and under buildings, and under gratings, together.
    — Whoopi Goldberg
