"This will have to be on hold as it's already overdue at the library.
Definitely more readable than The Iliad or the Odyssey ;-)"

“Killing oneself is, anyway, a misnomer. We don't kill ourselves. We are simply defeated by the long, hard struggle to stay alive. When somebody dies after a long illness, people are apt to say, with a note of approval, "He fought so hard." And they are inclined to think, about a suicide, that no fight was involved, that somebody simply gave up. This is quite wrong.”
Sally Brampton, Shoot the Damn Dog: A Memoir of Depression

Christine Warren
“Committing suicide essentially said to friends and loved ones and the world at large that you were the only thing that mattered, that your problems were hopeless that you deserved to escape from them and to hell with everyone else.
Suicide was nothing more than a way to look in the eye of the people who loved you and say, "My pain is paramount and I want it to end. The pain you will feel when I am gone, and the guilt you will experience at not having been able to stop me, do not matter to me. I am willing for you to suffer for the rest of your life so that I can take the easy way out of mine.”
Christine Warren, You're So Vein

David Levithan
“I am constantly torn between killing myself and killing everyone around me.”
David Levithan, Will Grayson, Will Grayson

It's all crap.
Living is crap.
Life has no meaning.
None. Nowhere to be found.
Why doesn't anybody realize this?”
K-Ske Hasegawa, Ballad of a Shinigami, Vol. 1

John Fowles
“To write poetry and to commit suicide, apparently so contradictory, had really been the same, attempts at escape.”
John Fowles, The Magus
