depression

A Quote by Sri Aurobindo on depression, illness, divine, aurobindo, and universal forces

All life is the play of universal forces. The individual gives a personal form to these universal forces. But he can choose whether he shall respond or not to the action of a particular force. Only most people do not really choose - they indulge the play of the forces. Your illness, depressions etc. are the repeated play of such forces. It is only when you can make oneself free of them that one can be the true person and have a true life - but one can be free only by living in the Divine.                                                                 (XXII p. 318)

A Quote by Abraham H. Maslow on anger, depression, disillusionment, facts, good, illusions, nature, people, saints, and selfishness

There are no perfect human beings! Persons can be found who are good, very good indeed, in fact, great. There do in fact exist creators, seers, sages, saints, shakers, and movers...even if they are uncommon and do not come by the dozen. And yet these very same people can at times be boring, irritating, petulant, selfish, angry, or depressed. To avoid disillusionment with human nature, we must first give up our illusions about it.

Abraham Maslow (1908 - 1970)

A Quote by William Ellery Channing on conscience, conviction, depression, duty, force, future, god, goodness, happiness, heart, ideas, energy, mercy, obedience, patience, peace, perfection, preparation, providence, purpose, soul, suffering, temptation, w

Soul Gathers Force It is possible, when the future is dim, when our depressed faculties can form no bright ideas of the perfection and happiness of a better world,-it is possible still to cling to the conviction of God's merciful purpose towards His creatures, of His parental goodness even in suffering, still to feel that the path of duty, though trodden with a heavy heart, leads to peace; still to be true to conscience; still to do our work, to resist temptation, to be useful, though with diminished energy, to give up our wills when we cannot rejoice under God's mysterious providence. In this patient, though uncheered obedience, we become prepared for light. The soul gathers force.

William Ellery Channing (1780 - 1842)

A Quote by unknown on action, chance, clarity, day, depression, enthusiasm, future, helpful, ideas, justice, management, projects, reason, time, and work

Helpful Hints & Useful Ideas for Time Management: Throw out low-priority tasks that have sat around for longer than two weeks. Reason: Piled up work is depressing and chances are time will be just as short in the future as it is now. Better: Clear desk completely on a periodic basis. High Priority tasks. Use best time of day for tasks categorized as hot, ripe, or urgent. Hot projects require immediate action because of enthusiasm or timeliness. Ripe items have been boiling for a while and are now critical.

The country girl had been in the big university for some months but seemed depressed and discouraged. Her roommate tried to cheer her up. "The first year is always the hardest.
