"It turns out that the more you repeat the same action no matter how reprehensible, the more you can make an excuse for it in you own mind."

"It's amazing what you can convince yourself of, it you buy into the lie.  You can believe for example that a dead end job is a career.  You can blame your ugliness for keeping people at bay when in reality you're crippled by the thought of letting another person close enough to potentially scar you even more deeply.  You can tell yourself that it's safer to love someone who will never really love you back because you can't lose someone you never had."

"Forgiving isn't something you do for someone else. It's something you do for yourself. It's saying, 'You don't get to turn me into a victim.  You are not important enough to me to be the object of my hate'.  Once you do that your enemy stays chained to his past but you are free."

"It doesn't matter who forgives you, if you're the one who can't forget."

"Fiction comes in all shapes and sizes. Secrets, lies, stories. We all tell them. Sometimes, because we hope to entertain. Sometimes, because we need to distract. And sometimes, because we have to."

"Any person is a stupid fool who expects his friends to keep for him; that which he cannot keep himself.  All our friends have each got their special friends; and they again have theirs; and it would not be right to lay the burden of keeping a secret on any one; at the end of a long string." John Brown

"Harking back to his famous essay 'Civil Disobedience," Thoreau cast Brown as an exemplar of principles resistance to authority.  'Is it possible that an individual may be right and a government wrong?' he asked.  'Are laws to be enforced simply because they are made?'  Brown, he said, had resisted unjust laws and stood up for human dignity, 'knowing himself for a man, and the equal of any and all governments.  In that sense he was the most American of us all'."

"In Depression, it seems that certain areas the brain's ability to adapt grinds to a halt.  The shut down in depression is a shut down of learning at the cellular level.  Not only is the brain locked into a negative loop of self hate but it also loses the flexibility to work its way out of the hole.  Redefining depression as a connectivity issue helps explain the wide range of symptoms people experience.  It's not just a matter of feeling empty, helpless and hopeless; it effects learning, attention, energy and motivation.  Disparate systems that involve different parts of the thinking brain.  Depression also effects the body, shutting down the drive to sleep, eat, have sex and generally look out for ourselves on a primitive level."

"Psychiatrist Alexander Niculescu sees depression as a survival instinct, to conserve resources in an environment void of hope, to keep still and stay out of harms way...It's a form of hibernation; when the emotional landscape turns wintery our neuro-landscape tells us to stay inside except that it can last much longer than a season.  It's as if our entire being has said there's nothing out there for me, so might as well quit.  Thus the atrophy, the halt of neuroplasticity, neurogenisis and of overall connectedness.  It's no wonder we haven't been able to define depression as a single problem."
