Sad Suicide Quotes

Feeling suicidal is something many of us have gone through. Over 30,000 people in the United States commit suicide every year with many others attempting to do the same. Over 10,000 of those are between the ages of 15 and 24.

It is the sad truth that life can be depressing. Here are some quotes by great authors and other famous persons about selfimmolation and suicidal thoughts.
