We are all alone, born alone, die alone
and - - in spite of True Romance magazines - -
we shall all someday look back on our lives and see that, in spite of our company, we were alone the whole way.
I do not say lonely - - at least, not all the time - - but essentially, and finally, alone.
This is what makes your self-respect so important, and I don't see how
you can respect yourself if you must look in the hearts and minds of others for your happiness."

- Hunter S. Thompson
