“What causes all the joy, even irresponsibly, to flood one’s soul, and mind, and veins and heart so that there seems to be no sorrow or pain?  What causes all the joy to disappear, sometimes for long arid periods, sometimes for a moment—why the almost complete despair?  I suppose only in these circumstances can we reach the greatest gift—HOPE.”  (1938)
