ROOTS OF LONELINESS


The roots of loneliness are very deep and cannot be touched by optimistic advertisement, substitute love images, or social togetherness. They find their food in the suspicion that there is no one who cares and offers love without conditions, and no place where we can be vulnerable without being used. Henri J. M. Nouwen, in Robert Durback, SEEDS OF HOPE
