No neurotic harbors thoughts of suicide which are not murderous impulses against others redirected upon himself. — Sigmund Freud (Totem and Taboo )
Peace is not something you can force on anything or anyone... much less upon one's own mind. It is like trying to quiet the ocean by pressing upon the waves.

May (Simply Sane: The Spirituality of Mental Health)

And your omega 3's, and the treadmill, and the cardiogram, and the mammogram, and the pelvic sonogram, and oh my god the-the-the colonoscopy, and with it all the day still comes where they put you in a box, and its on to the next generation of idiots, who'll also tell you all about life and define for you what's appropriate. My father committed suicide because the morning newspapers depressed him. And could you blame him? With the horror, and corruption, and ignorance, and poverty, and genocide, and AIDS, and global warming, and terrorism, and-and the family value morons, and the gun morons. The horror, Kurtz said at the end of Heart of Darkness, the horror. Lucky Kurtz didn't have the Times delivered in the jungle. Ugh... then he'd see some horror. But what do you do? You read about some massacre in Darfur or some school bus gets blown up, and you go Oh my God, the horror, and then you turn the page and finish your eggs from the free range chickens. Because what can you do. It's overwhelming! — Woody Allen
