People wonder why Hollywood is plagued with depression, some think the fame makes them depressed. I don’t think that’s the case, rather depressed people just happen to make fantastic actors. Being forced to play the role of “everything is alright”, its a role no one wants, but must be played believably for years day in and day out for the comfort of others. For a time they to believe that they are alright, however like any role it is mere illusion, it is not real no matter how desperately they wish it be true.

A writer does not cry, not that his pain is any less or any different, merely the manner of expression. Where another’s pain is witnessed ¬†through the running of tears across a face, his tears are different, they are ink, nor do they run across faces, but rather upon pages.
