"Do you know what it’s like to be lonely?

"Yes, it’s like there is nothing to live for. No sunshine to brighten your day or warm your skin."

"Exactly. Without someone to love, the constants that make life worthwhile simply disappear into being alone."

"It’s almost as if all of the things that make life beautiful are washed out by the grayness of depression when a lover is lost."

"I do, and I don’t know if I’ll ever get over the pain of it."

He: "The world would be unpleasant, indeed."
She: "You're getting a bit mushy for a first date, aren't you?"
