QUOTES ON DESPAIR


The habit of despair is worse than despair itself.

ALBERT CAMUS, The Plague

He who has never hoped can never despair.

GEORGE BERNARD SHAW, Caesar and Cleopatra

The most intense pleasures occur in despair.

FYODOR DOSTOEVSKY, Notes from the Underground

Despair has its own calms.
