Thank you, Alice Haber, for your heartfelt commentary on depression (”Depression need not define a rising tennis star — nor anyone else,” June 3) and especially for sharing your own experience.

I’d like to share this quote by American poet Miller Williams: “Have compassion for everyone you meet, even if they don’t want it. What seems conceit, bad manners, or cynicism is always a sign of things no ears have heard, no eyes have seen. You do not know what wars are going on down there where they spirit meets the bone.”
