“Melancholia is, I believe, a musical problem: a dissonance, a change in rhythm. While on the outside everything happens with the vertiginous rhythm of a cataract, on the inside is the exhausted adagio of drops of water falling from time to tired time. For this reason the outside, seen from the melancholic inside, appears absurd and unreal, and constitutes ‘the farce we all must play’. ” 
― Alejandra Pizarnik

Quote
"Most of us are incapable of recognizing our own pain. We look in the mirror and there is no one looking back; the reflection passive, unforgiving, indifferent. You could shatter the glass—pick up a shard and see a consoling eye, a mouth tilted in concern, a glimmer of mutual experience. But we creatures are the cruelest to ourselves. And we refuse to confront our wounds, even when we are confronted with ourselves."

— Mara Lisson (via marieclaire)
