Go back to Melancholy and Remorse

Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)
Melancholy and Remorse

Melancholy and remorse form the deep leaden keel which
enables us to sail into the wind of reality; we run aground
sooner than the flat-bottomed pleasure-lovers, but we
venture out in weather that would sink them.
