  2. k.p.:

    Loneliness is like alcohol. at first it gives a slight buzz but nothing more. As time progresses and more is consumed, it slowly becomes more and more intoxicating. Then before you even know it, you become addicted. You grow to need the feeling it gives you, knowing that its slowly killing you but unable to detach. Unwilling to try, you slowly succumb to the darkness until, finally, it owns you. Only then do you realize you've slowly become a slave to the relentless darkness that consumes the rest of the population.Loneliness is like alcohol. at first it gives a slight buzz but nothing more.

  4. Sren Aaby Kierkegaard:

    If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of the potential, for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible. Pleasure disappoints, possibility never. And what wine is so sparkling, what so fragrant, what so intoxicating, as possibility
