We sketch monsters on the map because we find their presence comforting. They guard the edges of the abyss, and force us to look away; so we can live comfortably in the Known World, at least for a little while.

John Koenig

John Koenig is a YouTuber, who aims to define neologisms for emotions that do not have a descriptive term. His channel and website, the Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows, includes verbal entries with paragraph-length descriptions and videos on YouTube for individual entries. The neologisms, while completely created by Koenig, are based on his research on etymologies and meanings of used prefixes, suffixes, and word roots.
