In the last 5 years, American employers have lost over $150 billion of productivity to depression alone. That is more than the GDP of 28 different States during the same period.
Our object in the construction of the state is the greatest happiness of the whole, and not that of any one class.
If you suffer from depression, anything that makes you feel has to the most important thing in your life, because it's the only thing that can save you.
Depression scares people off. It makes me laugh that it has that kind of effect.
When you're surrounded by all these people, it can be even lonelier than when you're by yourself. You can be in a huge crowd, but if you don't feel like you can trust anybody or talk to anybody, you feel like you're really alone.
