Lonliness

“But really, all we want, and I speak for the entire human race here, is contact.  Someone to let us know that we aren’t alone.  That the world isn’t a dream and you and I really are happening at the same time, even if it’s not in the same place.  That this is real.  You’re really there.  I’m really here.  We’re real.  This is real.” ~ Iain Thomas, I Wrote This For You

“Our language has wisely sensed the two sides of being alone.  It has created the word loneliness to express the pain of being alone.  And it has created the word solitude to express the glory of being alone.” ~ Paul Tillich, via Solitude

“This feeling of being lonely and very temporary visitors in the universe is in flat contradiction to everything known about man (and all other living organisms) in the sciences. We do not ‘come into’ this world; we come out of it, as leaves from a tree. As the ocean ‘waves,’ the universe ‘peoples.’ Every individual is an expression of the whole realm of nature, a unique action of the total universe.” ~ Alan Watts, The Book
