Richelle E. Goodrich
“Rainy, gloomy, drab, sunless day.  There are times when hope seems entirely clouded over; when looking for the blessings in your circumstances feels like trying to catch a ray of sunshine from six feet under.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Smile Anyway: Quotes, Verse, & Grumblings for Every Day of the Year

Paul Hoffman
“... If the dead can come back to this earth and move unseen around those they loved, I shall always be near you; in the garish day and in the darkest night—amidst your happiest scenes and gloomiest hours—always, always; and if there be a soft breeze upon your cheek, it shall be my breath; or if the cool air fans your throbbing temple, it shall be my spirit passing by.”
Paul Hoffman, The Left Hand of God

Gerald Durrell
“I can't be expected to produce deathless prose in an atmosphere of gloom and eucalyptus.”
Gerald Durrell, My Family and Other Animals

Richelle E. Goodrich
“Acknowledge that some moments are just plain awful―desperate and gloomy and painful and miserable and nothing at all but anguish. No truthful, cheerful thought in the world will fix it. So let me cry awhile. Don't try to find a sunbeam where a shroud of darkness encloses me. Let me mourn. Then after the storm, when the tears have run dry and my eyes choose to open, I will look for your rainbow of hope.”
Richelle E. Goodrich

Charles Dickens
“Morning drew on apace. The air became more sharp and piercing, as its first dull hue: the death of night, rather than the birth of day: glimmered faintly in the sky. The objects which had looked dim and terrible in the darkness, grew more and more defined, and gradually resolved into their familiar shapes. The rain came down, thick and fast; and pattered, noisily, among the leafless bushes.”
Charles Dickens

Charles Dickens
“He lived in chambers that had once belonged to his deceased partner. They were a gloomy suite of rooms, in a lowering pile of building up a yard, where it had so little business to be, that one could scarcely help fancying it must have run there when it was a young house, playing at hide-and-seek with other houses, and forgotten the way out again.”
Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol

Criss Jami
“I enjoy melancholic music and art. They take me to places I don't normally get to go.”
Criss Jami

Alain de Botton
“Though it may feel otherwise, enjoying life is no more dangerous than apprehending it with continuous anxiety and gloom.”
Alain de Botton

Vera Nazarian
“What a strange thing it is to wake up to a milk-white overcast June morning! The sun is hidden by a thick cotton blanket of clouds, and the air is vapor-filled and hazy with a concentration of blooming scent.

The world is somnolent and cool, in a temporary reprieve from the normal heat and radiance.

But the sensation of illusion is strong. Because the sun can break through the clouds at any moment . . .

What a soft thoughtful time.

In this illusory gloom, like a night-blooming flower, let your imagination bloom in a riot of color.”
Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

Jane Austen
“The past, present, and future, were all equally in gloom.”
Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey

“People think I’m all gloom and doom all the time. I’m not. I also have bad days where I’m pessimistic.”
Jarod Kintz

Richelle E. Goodrich
“As ofttimes as it rains on my little spot of earth, you'd think I'd grow accustomed to the gloom.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Smile Anyway: Quotes, Verse, & Grumblings for Every Day of the Year

Jarod Kintz
“Nonstop sunny days would be boring. We need the gloom to highlight the highs.”
Jarod Kintz, This Book Has No Title

“When does the dust of life seems to be a golden haze?
When the whole gloomy day is manipulated by the ray of light through a lamp, ignited by a person with a surprise of love beneath an act of compassion.”
Manish Kathuria

Nathaniel Hawthorne
“... for when a man's spirit has been thoroughly crushed, he may be peevish at small offenses, but never resentful of great ones.”
Nathaniel Hawthorne, The House of the Seven Gables

Jarod Kintz
“My life outlook isn’t cloudy. That’s just the weather report for the rest of my life.”
Jarod Kintz, This Book Has No Title

William Styron
“Depression is a disorder of mood, so mysteriously painful and elusive in the way it becomes known to the self--to the mediating intellect--as to verge close to being beyond description. It thus remains nearly incomprehensible to those who have not experienced it in its extreme mode, although the gloom, "the blues" which people go through occasionally and associate with the general hassle of everyday existence are of such prevalence that they do give many individuals a hint of the illness in its catastrophic form.”
William Styron, Darkness Visible: A Memoir of Madness

“The world has its own ways of treating us like what we will never be, but want to be. It relinquishes its grip on our souls while lulling us with the songs of freedom and conquest of beauty. It magnifies every tiny bit of something useless over an unfathomable presence of humanity. And we all waste the whole of our lives standing in queue for gaining its attention to be abdicated as if we never existed in the eyes of our fellow men.”
Annie Ali

Richelle E. Goodrich
“When thunderstorms roll in, you make a choice to either succumb with tears to the gloomy downpour or smile and look for rainbows.”
Richelle E. Goodrich

Anthony Liccione
“The Sun can be your greatest gloom, or your greatest comforter, depending on how you view its shine.”
Anthony Liccione

Walter de la Mare
“There was still an hour or two of daylight - even though clouds admitted only a greyish light upon the world, and his Uncle Timothy's house was by nature friendly to gloom.

("Out Of The Deep")”
Walter de la Mare, Great Tales of Terror and the Supernatural

Darrell Drake
“She set out for revenge, to run them through, to do what an elf, an elf must do.”
The next verse was Merill’s to improvise. “Climbed that roost, alighted right there. Made mush of his head for the onlooker bears.”
“A two-pronger her prize, a meat most rare. Do-gooders will pay. Do-gooders will fear.”
“Ballad of the loneliest ones,” lamented Merill.
“The loneliest ones,” said Almi. She accepted that title; they were the loneliest. The elf gloomed.”
Darrell Drake, Where Madness Roosts

Jarod Kintz
“I had a dream about you. The sky was overcast, and my mood was gloomy. Then you walked in. You were a breath of fresh sunlight, and my lungs immediately caught fire.
”
Jarod Kintz, I had a dream about you 2
