Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows

I have always felt that the English language is inadequate in many ways.
Not having the words to describe certain things accurately is one of them.
‘The Dictionary of Obsure Sorrows’ is helping to fill this void.

Two of my favorite new words are:


With every click of the shutter,
you’re trying to press pause on your life.
If only so you can feel a little more comfortable moving on
living in a world stuck on play.




John Loenig, The founder of The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows on TED..
