Loneliness

"You refer to my many friends". Nobel wrote in a letter." Where are they? On the muddy bottom of old illusions, or busy listening to the rattle of saved pennies? Believe me, numerous friends one gains only among dogs which one feeds with the flesh of others, or worms which one feeds with one's own. Grateful stomachs and grateful hearts are twins."
