One of the most famous recipients of electroconvulsive therapy: Ernest Hemingway shortly before his suicide in 1961.
The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong in the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry. — A Farewell to Arms.
