I was always alone.

->Sometimes it's a relief to get lost in the sea of faces...other times, it feels like I'm drowning.

->For a crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love.
-->--Francis Bacon

->'''Pvt. Robert Witt''': Do you ever feel lonely?\\
'''Sgt. Edward Welsh''': Only around people.

->I have not loved the world, nor the world me;\\
I have not flatter'd its rank breath, nor bow'd\\
To its idolatries a patient knee, --\\
Nor coin'd my cheek to smiles, -- nor cried aloud\\
In worship of an echo; in the crowd\\
They could not deem me one of such; I stood\\
Among them, but not of them; in a shroud\\
Of thoughts which were not their thoughts, and still could,\\
Had I not filed my mind, which thus itself subdued.
-->--Lord Byron, "Childe Harold's Pilgrimage", Canto III, Stanza CXIII

->''How can I feel abandoned, even when the world surrounds me?''\\
''How can I bite the hand that feeds the strangers all around me?''\\
''How can I feel so lonely''\\
''Never really knowing anyone?''
-->--'''Music/DreamTheater''', "Misunderstood"

->''Facing twenty thousand of your friends''\\
''How can anyone be so lonely?''
-->-- '''Music/{{ABBA}}''', "Super Trouper"
