Toska


Notes

She knew it was time to begin writing newer pages, but she could not begin until she said goodbye to all that was before. A new chapter of her life was forming, for the new born year would be held in her arms in by the dawn of the next day.

"No single word in English renders all the shades of toska. At its deepest and most painful, it is a sensation of great spiritual anguish, often without any specific cause. At less morbid levels it is a dull ache of the soul, a longing with nothing to long for, a sick pining, a vague restlessness, mental throes, yearning. In particular cases it may be the desire for somebody of something specific, nostalgia, love-sickness. At the lowest level it grades into ennui, boredom.” -Vladimir Nabokov
