Category:Desperation[edit]

I'm not a native English speaker, but couldn't it be merged into Category:Despair? Or the other way perhaps? Or is it necessary to maintain both? --Eusebius (talk) 11:18, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

Despair and desperation can be two different things. Despair is mainly when you've given up hope, and while desperation can mean the same thing it can also mean "extreme recklessness, reckless fury" and so on, usually "arising from despair". So I guess desperation is what happens when you've despaired and you're desperate? ... such a confusing language, English.
Point is, while it's possible for them to mean the same thing they can also mean different things. I guess category separation makes sense. -- Editor at Largetalk 05:09, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
OK for me, if you feel like it is possible to distinguish despair from desperation in a media file! :-) --Eusebius (talk) 06:42, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
