"Most demons - most forms of anguish - rely on the cover of night; to see them clearly is to defeat them. Depression stands in the full glare of the sun, unchallenged by recognition. You can know the why and wherefore and suffer just as much as if you were shrouded by ignorance. There is almost no other state of which the same can be said."

Andrew Solomon,
The Noonday Demon
