Solitude x Loneliness

A few days ago I watched Paper Man on a cable channel.

There was a quote in the movie, two actually.

By replacing the name with mine both would apply to me.

Both are absolutely true, but not simultaneously.

“Morton regarded his solitude as something sacred.”

“Morton regarded his solitude as something unbearable.”




“I feel liberated. I am, now and forever, post-love, and as such, am free to pursue a life of meaning”



“The only thing that anyone can predict about people with 100% certainty is that they’ll change. And anyone who thinks otherwise is kidding themselves.”


Received Quote

Today a friend sent me an e-mail that had this quote:

Keep only what is useful, happy and/or beautiful.

From A Movie

“Any idiot in the world can say “I love you”.

Your feelings only matter to you.

What does count is what you do and say to the ones you say you love.”

“People know the truth. Lie to them and you’ll lose them”


“Hope is itself a species of happiness, and, perhaps, the chief happiness which this world affords: but, like all other pleasures immoderately enjoyed, the excesses of hope must be expiated by pain; and expectations improperly indulged must end in disappointment.”

– Samuel Johnson –


“Somebody once wrote that we run away from our dreams when we are afraid of failing. Even worse, when we are afraid of succeeding.”
