When I get lonely these days, I think: so be lonely, Liz. Learn your way around loneliness. Make a map of it. Sit with it, for once in your life. Welcome to te human experience. But never again use another person’s body or emotions as a scratching post for your own unfulfilled yearnings.

#quoteoftheday

I can live alone, if self-respect and circumstances require me so to do. I need not sell my soul to buy bliss. I have an inward treasure born with me, which can keep me alive if all extraneous delights should be withheld or offered only at a price I cannot afford to give.

-Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

#quoteoftheday

As a child I felt myself to be alone, and I am still, because I know things and must hint at things wich others apparently know nothing of, and for the most part do not want to know.

Loneliness does not come from having no people about one, but from being unable to communicate the things that seem important to one self, or from holding certain views which others find inadmissible.

– Carl Jung
