What Famous People say about Depression

I never asked you to earn me. I want only that you should need me. Your path is not one of merit. Bring the recurring desires of your mind to me, every time they emerge. They cannot shock me, for I willed them! Bring me your confusion, your fear, your craving, your anxiety, your inability to love the world, your hesitation to serve, your jealousy, all the deficiencies that defy your spiritual disciplines.
Sri Sathya Sai Baba, Spiritual Guru from India

This is my depressed stance. When you're depressed, it makes a lot of difference how you stand. The worst thing you can do is straighten up and hold your head high because then you'll start to feel better. If you're going to get any joy out of being depressed, you've got to stand like this.
Charlie Brown

Depression is rage spread thin.
George Santayana

Depression is the inability to construct a future.
Rollo May

I start to feel like I can’t maintain the facade any longer, that I may just start to show through. And I wish I knew what was wrong. Maybe something about how stupid my whole life is. I don’t know. Why does the rest of the world put up with the hypocrisy, the need to put a happy face on sorrow, the need to keep on keeping on?... I don’t know the answer, I know only that I can’t. I don't want any more vicissitudes, I don't want any more of this try, try again stuff. I just want out. I’ve had it. I am so tired. I am twenty and I am already exhausted.
Elizabeth Wurtzel

I am a doll for play , or do the words you said dint mean anything. Are words only words or is it meant to kill me when times go by. Am I nothing , or the world made me feel like I am nothing. Will the days pass by and go brighter , Will I ever find someone , someone to call my own , or was i meant to be alone.
Woofer

Depression is nourished by a lifetime of ungrieved and unforgiven hurts.
Penelope Sweet

Depression is not sobbing and crying and giving vent, it is plain and simple reduction of feeling...People who keep stiff upper lips find that it's damn hard to smile.
Judith Guest

In a strange way, I had fallen in love with my depression. Dr. Sterling was right about that. I loved it because I thought it was all I had. I thought depression was the part of my character that made me worthwhile. I thought so little of myself, felt that I had such scant offerings to give to the world, that the one thing that justified my existence at all was my agony."
Elizabeth Wurtzel

Slowly slipping in a deep dark pit, i find my self near the end of my life, i thank my friends and family for everything they have done to help me over the years with my aching pain, i remain, unknown and i don't want to share my feelings, thoughts, knowing it will only make others sad, i've only made it so far thanks to my girl friend, shes a lovely woman, happy glaring smile whenever i see her, she makes me have a new lease on life, now i'm here sitting at home typing this out, i feel so alone because noone is here beside my friends and my family have gone and i'm here stuck in my deep dark pit..
