“ What is hell? Hell is oneself. Hell is alone, the other figures in it Merely projections. There is nothing to escape from And nothing to escape to. One is always alone. ”
The loneliest moment in someone's life is when they are watching their whole world fall apart, and all they can do is stare blankly.
The trouble is not that I am single and likely to stay single, but that I am lonely and likely to stay lonely.
Lonely people tend, rather, to be lonely because they decline to bear the psychic costs of being around other humans. They are allergic to people. People affect them too strongly.
That's love: Two lonely persons keep each other safe and touch each other and talk to each other.
