“sadness itself becomes the object. ..Mourning for a depressed narcissist is ..an ..attachment to an unsymbolizable object, ..an insistence “without desire” that leaves the depressed person with a ..sense of having lost something.., but having no name for that lost object.” – “Such a person, steeped in melancholia, is left without memory, without words, without desire”
