"The problem with loneliness is that, unlike other forms of human suffering, it teaches us nothing, leads us nowhere, and generally devalues us in our own eyes and the eyes of otheres. It lies upon the soul lightly or heavily, depending on one’s age and one’s luck, and swiftly transforms the heartiest of souls into a living ash of spiritual doubt and despair. It is imprevious to medicine, common sense, wisdom, humor, hope, or pride. It simply comes, sits in the center of the heart where it cannot be overlooked, and abides."
