Sunlit Interior, Carl Vilhelm Holsøe

Depression is such a cruel punishment. There are no fevers, no rashes, no blood tests to send people scurrying in concern. Just the slow erosion of the self, as insidious as any cancer. And, like cancer, it is essentially a solitary experience. A room in hell with only your name on the door. —(Unknown)

The waiting is the hardest part, John Register

Jimmy was extraordinarily intuitive and inventive, and he had an immediate connection with his whole emotional being. He was extremely quick to absorb things, and he was always hungry for information. He could also practicalize things which stayed impractical for other performers, things about the method, for example, which he was able to simplify for himself. He understood the concept that “acting is doing,” and he never worried about excessive emotional preparation. He might, for example, prepare by doing multiplication tables. By sixteens, say. How much is 16 times 16? How much is 16 times 17? Something that would force him to be intensely focused on a specific problem which might have absolutely nothing to do with his character’s problems but which would give him the results he wanted without straining for the result. - Stewart Stern

You know that place between sleep and awake, that place where you still remember dreaming? That’s where I’ll always love you. That’s where I’ll be waiting. —Hook (1991)
