A Quote by H. R. Giger on beauty, death, depression, disease, future, home, hope, ideas, kindness, love, people, pessimism, reality, study, work, and world

Some people would say my paintings show a future world and maybe they do, but I paint from reality. I put several things and ideas together, and perhaps, when I have finished, it could show the future. If people want to interpret my work as warnings about too much overpopulation, disease and mechanization in the future, then that is up to them. I like to combine human beings, creatures and biomechanics. And I love to work with bones - they are elemental and function and, after all, are part of human beings. I have many bones in my home in Zurich, and I study them and use them as models. Some people say my work is often depressing and pessimistic, with the emphasis on death, blood, overcrowding, strange beings and so on, but I don't really think it is. There is hope and a kind of beauty in there somewhere, if you look for it.

A Quote by Grenville Kleiser on anxiety, body, business, contentment, depression, direction, friendship, good, humor, mind, and serenity

Good humor is a tonic for mind and body. It is the best antidote for anxiety and depression. It is a business asset. It attracts and keeps friends. It lightens human burdens. It is the direct route to serenity and contentment.

A Quote by George V. Denny, Jr. on depression, friendship, and words

In the depths of depression, I returned to my native state of North Carolina and heard an old negro I had known who was very fond of using big words, talking to some of his friends about the status quo. After an exchange of greetings, I asked him if he knew what status quo meant. "Yes suh," he said, "I sho' does. It means de mess we is in."

A Quote by Geoffrey Norman on body, depression, needs, and work

The best insurance policy for tomorrow is to make the most productive use of today. A lot of what passes for depression these days is nothing more than a body saying that it needs work.

A Quote by Elaine Sherman on behavior, certainty, depression, feeling, happiness, and life

Chocolate causes certain endocrine glands to secrete hormones that affect your feelings and behavior by making you happy. Therefore, it counteracts depression, in turn reducing the stress of depression. Your stress-free life helps you maintain a youthful disposition, both physically and mentally. So, eat lots of chocolate!

When women are depressed, they eat or go shopping. Men invade another country. It's a whole different way of thinking.

A Quote by Charles M. Schulz on depression and joy

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 oujt of being depressed, you've got to stand like this.

Great men suffer hours of depression through introspection and self-doubt. That is why they are great. That is why you will find modesty and humility the characteristics of such men.
