We hope these highly empowering and overcoming sad and deep depressing quotes by famous authors will give you the mental strength to brush past the disappointment and lead a peaceful life.
Life is uncertain, and many unfavorable events could easily make us susceptible to depression and loneliness.
Let’s take an oath to ourselves out of self-love that nothing (no event or person) will overpower us so severely that we get heartbroken and lose the will to live at all.
Life is fleeting, nothing is ever permanent in life, so it is essential not to have serious expectations and high hopes.
The misplaced priorities and wrong value judgment cause a deep depressing attitude within oneself.
Remember this deeply, the more the expectation from the world for psychological fulfillment, the more chances of moving towards depression.
Be mentally tough;; never allow anything or anybody to shatter and dismantle you inside after a certain level.
Be unbreakable because that is our nature, we only have to realize our mental tenacity sooner or later, and the need to feel depressed will vanish from our lives.

Depression presents itself as a realism regarding the rottenness of the world in general and the rottenness of your life in particular. But the realism is merely a mask for depression’s actual essence, which is an overwhelming estrangement from humanity. The more persuaded you are of your unique access to the rottenness, the more afraid you become of engaging with the world; and the less you engage with the world, the more perfidiously happy-faced the rest of humanity seems for continuing to engage with it.
– Jonathan Franzen
To perceive is to suffer.
Wanting to be happy is not the worst thing in the world, but wanting it badly enough to make us depressed is.
