The dark side of melancholia

“Upon close observation you will notice that melancholic persons are especially inclined to have their own way, to say everything that comes into their mind, to watch for the faults of others in order to hide their own and to find peace in that which is according to their own liking.”

St. Theresa as quoted by Rev. Conrad Hock in ‘The Four Temperaments and the Spiritual Life’
