David D. Burns
On the relationship side, if you teach people to respond actively and constructively when someone they care about has a victory, it increases love and friendship and decreases the probability of depression.
Since I was 16, I've felt a black cloud hangs over me. Since then, I have taken pills for depression.
The other thing is that if you rely solely on medication to manage depression or anxiety, for example, you have done nothing to train the mind, so that when you come off the medication, you are just as vulnerable to a relapse as though you had never taken the medication.
It's a recession when your neighbor loses his job; it's a depression when you lose yours.
Harry S Truman

James E. Faust
Anger is energising. The opposite of anger is depression, which is anger turned inward.

Depression, suffering and anger are all part of being human.
All three of my parents - I also had a stepmother - were teachers, and my dad taught high school, and as he always reminded me when I was going to spend some money on something, 'Your mother and I, in the Depression, had to decide whether to spend a dime on a loaf of bread or if we could go to a movie with it.'
One of things so bad about depression and bipolar disorder is that if you don't have prior awareness, you don't have any idea what hit you.

When I was in high school, I used to have breakfast with my grandpa every morning. He instilled a lot of values in me: hard work, loyalty.
