Darkness Visible - William Styron

This quote was added by aqquila89
In depression this 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. If there is mild relief, one knows that it is only temporary; more pain will follow. It is hopelessness even more than pain that crushes the soul... One does not abandon, even briefly, one's bed of nails, but is attached to it wherever one goes.
