THOUGHTS FOR THE DAY

“In his or her own way, everyone I saw before me looked happy. Whether they were really happy or just looked it, I couldn’t tell. But they did look happy on this pleasant early afternoon in late September, and because of that I felt a kind of loneliness new to me, as if I were the only one here who was not truly part of the scene.”
–Haruki Murakami

“If you’ve ever had that feeling of loneliness, of being an outsider, it never quite leaves you. You can be happy or successful or whatever, but that thing still stays within you.”
–Tim Burton

“I am not an outsider. I am an insider who discovered that everyone else had gone out.”
–Stephen J. Day
