I’ve written about weltschmerz before, but I’ve always been aware that English does a particularly poor job describing interesting and complex emotions.  This infograph from Fast Company is case in point.

Tocka (Russian, great spiritual anguish without any cause), and pretty much all of the words related to but more specific than ‘togetherness’ are my favorites.  And I could probably use some of the Chinese word for ‘relaxed’ and ‘nothingness’, ie less worrying.
