A Favorite Quote
« on: October 30, 2011, 06:14:53 AM »
Among my favorite quotes is this one by my friend Anneli Rufus in her book "Party of One: The Loner's Manifesto".

"...just as Homo sapiens no longer need prehensile toes, we no longer all need to be social animals in order to survive as a species.  Mandatory social interaction is an evolutionary remnant which those who wish to may discard."

I would like to add emphasis to the word Mandatory.  For me, voluntary social interaction taken in very small doses, such as LC postings now and then, is tolerable.

Charles, you made me smile!  Wow, reading that was like drinking a gallon of Jolt, made my head spin.  I think that your name fits your writing perfectly.  Two social interactions by me in the same day, incredible!

Haha...  You know, I might just have to infiltrate this 'Party of One' forum now.  Just to take notes, make comparisons, stalk 'Charles'...  That sort of thing.

Don't hate me for my curiosity.   :cheesy:

"WANTING TO BE SOMEONE ELSE IS A WASTE OF THE PERSON YOU ARE."

I don't know squat about his music, but this quote hits the nail on the head.

Another favorite of mine... this one seems especially good during Holidays, it helps me to convince myself that it is ok to be alone:

I have never found a companion that was so companionable as solitude. We are for the most part more lonely when we go abroad among men than when we stay in our chambers. A man thinking or working is always alone, let him be where he will. By Henry David Thoreau

Even when I am cold and uncommunicative, I hope that everyone here at LC is well.  This is a good place to hang on to.
