Fog Quotations

That's the thing about depression: A human being can survive almost anything, as long as she sees the end in sight. But depression is so insidious, and it compounds daily, that it's impossible to ever see the end. The fog is like a cage without a key.
Elizabeth Wurtzel

In tragedy, it's hard to find a good resolution; it's not black and white: it's a big fog of gray.
Paul Dano

Most of us live in a fog. It's like life is a movie we arrived to 20 minutes late. You know something important seems to be going on. But we can't figure out the story. We don't know what part we're supposed to play or what the plot is.
John Eldredge

Carl von Clausewitz

Fog and smog should not be confused and are easily separated by color.
Chuck Jones
