How lonely are you?

I've never felt lonely in my life. I've been locked in a room and felt suicidal. I've been feeling down. I've felt awful — awful beyond words — but I've never felt that anyone else could enter that room and cure whatever was bothering me...or that anyone could enter that room at all. In other words, I've never been bothered by loneliness because I've always had a terrible desire for solitude. I might feel lonely when I'm at a party or in a stadium full of people cheering for something.

"The strongest men are the most alone," Ibsen said. "Well, some beautiful blonde will come in here and give me a fuck-job, rub my balls, and I'll feel good," I've never thought. 

No, that isn't going to help. You're familiar with the typical crowd, "What are you going to do on a Friday night? Do you just sit there?" Okay, fine. Because there isn't anything else out there. It's insanity. Stupid people hanging out with other stupid people. Allow them to make themselves stupid. I've never felt compelled to rush out into the night. I hid in bars instead of factories because I didn't want to hide in factories. That's all there is to it. Sorry for the millions of dollars, but I've never been lonely. I'm pleased with myself. I'm my best source of entertainment. Let's have some more wine!

Inspired from the quote of Charles Bukowski
