“When you surround yourself by only those you can manipulate and bend with your charm, you will find yourself alone and deeply unfulfilled.
“When you finally have no desire to influence another, you will be alone and deeply satisfied.
“There is no escape from being alone. You always have been. You always will be. It is only when you end trying to convince yourself you are not that you ever realize your aloneness is rationed out amongst the entire human race and somehow that makes it easier.”
