That which renders life burdensome to us generally arises from the abuse of it.
      - Jean-Jacques Rousseau

I am wrapped in dismal thinking.
      - William Shakespeare

Alas! I have nor hope nor health
  Nor peace within nor calm around,
    Nor that content surpassing wealth
      The sage in meditation found.
      - Percy Bysshe Shelley

Ennui, wretchedness, melancholy, groans and sighs are the offering which these unhappy Methodists make to a Deity, who has covered the earth with gay colors, and scented it with rich perfumes; and shown us, by the plan and order of His works, that He has given to man something better than a bare existence, and scattered over His creation a thousand superfluous joys, which are totally unnecessary to the mere support of life.
      - Sydney Smith

We are amused through the intellect, but it is the heart that saves us from ennui.
      - Madame Anne Sophie Swetchine (Soimonoff)
