When you’re accustomed to loneliness, you become in tune with the rhythms of yourself and your own mind… You’ll also know how important self-love and reliance is, to love yourself before you love someone else, but I think the universality of loneliness teaches us what that love is. To be lonely is to be human, to feel pain, to be forced to know yourself – and the universality of it binds us. Love is embracing that universality and surrendering to it. ~ Nico Lang (Photo by Annie Leibovitz)
