On Depression --Judith Guest



http://www.livejournal.com/users/pandemo/171448.html

Geez, if I could get through to you, kiddo, that depression is not sobbing and crying and giving vent, it is plain and simple reduction of feeling. Reduction, see? Of all feeling. People who keep stiff upper lips find that it's damn hard to smile.
    --Judith Guest (b. 1936), U.S. author. The psychiatrist Berger to Conrad Jarrett, in Ordinary People
