«Melancholy is life's emollient. Sometimes the message has to be conveyed softly and slowly for it to penetrate. The melancholic aspect has nothing to do with depression. Rather, on the contrary, melancholy is a dimension that enhances the joy in life. "It is in the darkness that we find the light".
