From a Van Gogh letter: "Weemoed Melancholy may be a good experience, provided we write it as two words: wee woe, which is in every man, each of us having reason enough, but it must be allied to moed courage, and the more the better, for it is good to be someone who never despairs." http://www.webexhibits.org/vangogh/letter/6/121.htm
