We're born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we're not alone. – Orson Welles
We come into this world and we leave this world as we entered it, alone. For all the camaraderie we try to forge, for all the relationships that enter rocky waters and may sink, for all the friends we claim, none of these can defy the fact that we are ultimately on our own. When it is time for us to die, we are the ones who die. Just as importantly, we are the ones who live and we should live as we want.
