‘Sorry, did I say something wrong?’ said Marvin, dragging himself on regardless.  ‘Pardon me for breathing, which I never do anyway so I don’t know why I bother to say it.  Oh God I’m so depressed.  Here’s another one of those self-satisfied doors.  Life!  Don’t talk to me about life.  Life,’ said Marvin dolefully, ‘loath it or ignore it, you can’t like it.’  Douglas Adams, The Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Universe, Marvin the Paranoid Android

Obviously I’m prone to depression.  A certain bleak attitude about the world.  But I know I can handle it.  Your kids though when they’re young and they’re sick you’d give anything in the world to trade place with them so they don’t have to suffer.  And then they think you’re the cause of it ... This miserable existence.  The Sopranos s6e17: Walk Like a Man

 

 

Listen to the people who love you.  Believe that they are worth living for even when you dont believe it.  Seek out the memories depression takes away and project them into the future.  Be brave; be strong; take your pills.  Exercise because it’s good for you even if every step weighs a thousand pounds.  Eat when food itself disgusts you.  Reason with yourself when you have lost your reason.  Andrew Solomon, The Noonday Demon: An Atlas of Depression 

 

 

Shortly after the three astronauts’ triumphant return to Earth ... Buzz Aldrin the second man to walk on the moon sank into a depression for no apparent reason.  Dark Side of the Moon, 2002  

 

 

Imagine a society that subjects people to conditions that make them terribly unhappy then gives them the drugs to take away their unhappiness.  Science fiction.  It is already happening to some extent in our own society.  Instead of removing the conditions that make people depressed, modern society gives them antidepressant drugs.  In effect antidepressants are a means of modifying an individual’s internal state in such a way as to enable him to tolerate social conditions that he would otherwise find intolerable.  Theodore Kaczynski 

 

 

Our society tends to regard as a sickness any mode of thought or behaviour that is inconvenient for the system and this is plausible because when an individual doesn’t fit into the system it causes pain to the individual as well as problems for the system.  Thus the manipulation of an individual to adjust him to the system is seen as a cure for a sickness and therefore as good.  Theodore Kaczynski 

 

 

Depression was a powerful force in Van Gogh’s life and work.  Living itself seemed a continuous struggle for him.  He’d no money and he often went hungry.  When he was twenty-one he fell in love with one of his models  a pregnant and alcoholic prostitute.  Great Artists with Tim Marlow: Van Gogh, Sky Arts 2003

In 1946 President Truman signed the National Mental Health Act.  It had been born directly out of the war-time discoveries by psychoanalysts that millions of Americans who had been drafted suffered hidden anxieties and fears.  The aim of the Act was to deal with this invisible threat to society.  Adam Curtis, The Century of the Self, BBC 2002

 

 

In America in the 1960s was a man who was convinced that there was something frightening hidden under the surface of the new modern suburbs.  Behind what looked like a confident individualism was rising up throughout America there were really hidden fears eating away at people from inside.  There were feelings of anxiety, loneliness and emptiness, and he was convinced he could make a lot of money out of these feelings: he was called Arthur Sackler … Valium: he offered it to the doctors as an extraordinary new way to treat these inner anxieties, and he said it wasn’t dangerous or addictive.  Adam Curtis, Can’t Get You Out of My Head III: Money Changes Everything, BBC 2021
