Stephen King, Salem’s Lot

‘Deep down, the young are lonelier than the old.’ I read that in a book somewhere and it’s stuck in my head. Maybe it’s true. Maybe it’s not true. More likely, the young and the old are lonely in different ways, in their own ways.

Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything is Illuminated

Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything is Illuminated

I felt lonely and content at the same time. I believe that is a rare kind of happiness.

I can’t look after you when you’re eighty. You’ll be phoning me every time you wanna change the TV channel? No, too painful. I’ve got my flat. It’s better for all of us.

Nathan, Misfits

I’m just a lonely loner on a lonely road.Alone.

Roy, The IT Crowd

Barney Stinson, How I Met Your Mother
