"Forty years ago The Beatles asked the world a simple question. They wanted to know where all the lonely people came from. My latest theory is that a great many of the lonely people come from hospitals, more precisely the surgical wing of hospitals. As surgerons we ignore our own needs so we can meet our patients needs. We ignore our friends and families so we can save other peoples friends and families which means, at the end of the day, we only really have ourself. And nothing in this world can make you feel more alone than that."
"400 years ago, another well known English guy had an opinion about being alone: John Dunn. He thought we were never alone although it was fancier when he said it. 'No man is an island entire unto himself'. Boil down that island talk and he just meant that all anyone needs is someone to step in and let us know we're not alone. And who's to say that someone can't have four legs. Some to play with and run around with or just hang out."
