The Devil

Since despair is the greatest of sins, and since the Devil embodies the greatest sinfulness, it follows that the Devil must be the single most melancholic, depressed and gloom-wracked entity in the Christian cosmos. In the same way that an ordinary person may be simply too depressed even to get out of bed and go to work, so Satan is too depressed to get up out of hell and walk about the world.
