When something bothered me, I didn’t talk with anyone about it. I thought it over all by myself, came to a conclusion, and took action alone. Not that I really felt lonely. I thought that’s just the way things are. Human beings, in the final analysis, have to survive on their own.
It’s a sad day when you find out that it’s not accident or time or fortune, but just yourself that kept things from you.
Lillian Hellman (1905 - 1984)
