"He struck me as lonely, and there's always something pathetic as loneliness. I'd experienced it myself. I would ferociously deny i was pathetic, but when i viewed loneliness in someone else, i could feel the tug of pity." -Dead as a Doornail, Charlaine Harris is there truly something pathetic about loneliness? do we, as people, feel bad when we learn someone is "all alone"? this interests me.
