Quotes: I Just Want to Have Friends

"A hand for each hand was planned for the world
Why don't my fingers reach?
Millions of grains of sand in the world
Why's mine a lonely beach?
Where are the heels to click to my clack?
Where is the voice to answer mine back?
I'm all alone in the world"
—"All Alone in the World", Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol

Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art... It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival.

Things like sightseeing, filmgoing and dining out aren't half as much fun by one's self. Half as fun would make logical sense, but it's really closer to one one-hundredth as fun.
Mike Nelson's Mind Over Matters

It's enough...yeah, it's enough. I don't need anything else, anymore.
Greed on friendship, last words, Fullmetal Alchemist

Cause I don't need this life
I just need…
Somebody to die for
Somebody to cry for
When I'm lonely
— "Somebody To Die For" by Hurts

Out of the zone, now I can see
I don't need them and they don't need me
I guess I'll go home, try to be sane
Try to pretend none of it happened
Destined to be lonely old me
Whoops-a-daisy, I thought I was happy
Ah, ah
Why won't they talk to me?
Tame Impala, 'Why Won't They Talk To Me?'

Ibai: I've never had very many friends, you see. Well, I've had my family, of course. They’ve provided such fantastic companionship; I wouldn’t want to give the impression that they haven't. I love them very much. But yes, they are my family. It’s a different sort of relationship. I feel there is something uniquely special about becoming friends with someone who is in no way obligated to you already. It’s a bit purer, in an odd way.
Hector: [thinking] Strangely, he knew exactly what Ibai was talking about. In his lonelier days, he'd often pondered the nature of companionship himself, and indeed, he'd reached a similar conclusion. There was something different about the approval of others, of strangers. It vindicated one’s existence, perhaps. That was what he’d come to believe, anyway.
