Despair is a narcotic. It lulls the mind into indifference.
 Charlie Chaplin, Monsieur Verdoux (1947). copy citation

Context

“A nightmare in which I lived in a half dream world. A horrible world. And now I've awakened. I wonder if that world ever existed. You went through a bad ordeal. Don't allow it to take hold of you. It hasn't. Despair is a narcotic. It lulls the mind into indifference. But that's giving up life. We must all give it up sooner or later. - Yes, but not before our time. - Why? Must you know the reason for everything? It might help a little if we did. Life is beyond reason.” source
