Here are The Melancholy Quotes.
Let me remove to such a place
where none should be;
None to speak one's tongue
Or share one's thoughts should be;
Build a house sans walls or floor,
No neighbour, no person close should be.
If one is sick, none need be there to care,
And if one were to pass away
Nobody to mourn should be.
(Mirza Asadullah Khan Ghalib : 1796-1869 : from Urdu)
Melancholy, indeed, should be diverted by every means but drinking.
As I lie here
I hear gun shots.....
Like those dead deer.
Everyone comes, then falls
In the face of separation and death.
By living, loving, longing to love
We are hurt, we are embittered, we die
Do we not?
(Jeebananda Das : The Camp)
No morning sun will ever
dismantle the global gloom
cast by the Daily Papers,
vomiting in slipshod prose
the facts of filth and violence
that we're too dumb to prevent.
(Wystan Hugh Auden : 1907-1973)
