Writing and reading decrease our sense of isolation.

Better to start with the Fairy Godmother, who will always give you exactly as much as you need to know when you need to know it.
Alice O. Howell (Nov. 13, 1922-October 28, 2014)
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.
Money may be the husk of many things but not the kernel. It brings you food, but not appetite; medicine, but not health; acquaintance, but not friends; servants but not loyalty; days of joy, but not peace or happiness.
Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.
Carl Gustav Jung, quoted in Gratefulness.org
