A Quote by Julian Barton on assumptions, depression, happiness, and niceness

I think it would be nice if you could include a greater slant to the growing, happy side of your persona - it wouldn't be too hard to assume (as I erroneously did at first) that you were a depression-racked, paranoid loony. Not so much from this issue, but as a general pattern from earlier issues. I've learnt, though. You're not paranoid.

A Quote by Julia Margaret Cameron on anger, creativity, depression, power, and worth

When we are angry or depressed in our creativity, we have misplaced our power. We have allowed someone else to determine our worth, and then we are angry at being undervalued.

A Quote by John Sutherland Bonnell, DD on christianity, depression, disillusionment, faith, guilt, needs, overcoming, problems, resentment, spirituality, and therapy

Emphasis on educational and vocational rehabilitation must not be allowed to overshadow the profound need that will exist for spiritual reorientation. Inevitably there will exist, to a considerable degree, psychological maladjustments manifested in disillusionment, resentment toward civilians, depression, and a sense of guilt. Spiritual therapy available in the resources of the Christian faith can accomplish most in overcoming these problems.

A Quote by James Keller on cities, confidence, courage, depression, gloom, and individuality

An old Arabian fable tells of a prince imprisoned in a castle which had thirteen windows. Twelve of these windows overlooked lovely scenes, while the thirteenth looked down on the black ash heaps of the city. Ignoring the twelve windows, the prince always looked out through the thirteenth. It is so often true that whether a person carries with him an atmosphere of gloom and depression or one of confidence and courage depends on his individual outlook.

A Quote by Henry N. Kost on business, deed, depression, and good

The one who keeps the stars in their place can keep us in our place. There is no depression for good deeds, and that is all that business consists of, and that is our real business.

A Quote by Henry Matisse on art, balance, depression, dreams, fatigue, good, influence, mind, purity, relaxation, and serenity

What I dream is an art of balance, of purity and serenity, devoid of troubling and depressing subject matter...a shooting, calming influence on the mind, something like a good armchair which provides relaxation from physical fatigue.

A Quote by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky on action, depression, enthusiasm, ignorance, laws, nature, time, and truth

To act and act wisely when the time for action comes, to wait and wait patiently when it is time for repose, put man in accord with the rising and falling tides (of affairs), so that with nature and law at his back, and truth and beneficence as his beacon light, he may accomplish wonders. Ignorance of this law results in periods of unreasoning enthusiasm on the one hand, and depression on the other. Man thus becomes the victim of the tides when he should be their Master.

Helena Blavatsky (1831 - 1891)
