"Being alone is in the deepest sense the human condition. Loneliness is the disease of feeling isolated, cut off from human contact and human warmth. Some people battle all their lives against this poignant emotion, struggling constantly to come to terms with the immutable fact of their existence: that all human beings are separate, one from another, and will remain so all their lives; each sealed within a thin veneer of skin. If this struggle is successful, the individual ultimately transcends his physical limitations and becomes most himself precisely because he is closely bound to others."  (Eric P. Mosse, The Conquest of Loneliness)
