Kesepian dan kesendirian

Nyatanya, siapa pun bisa memilih untuk sendirian. Tapi tak ada yang dapat memilih untuk kesepian.

Sapien dan alien yang terluka

Alienation-connectedness continuum Kraus, 1993)

Who contemplates, aspires, or dreams, is not ALONE: he peoples with rich thoughts the spot. The only loneliness how dark and blind!
Is that where fancy cannot dupe the mind;
Where the heart, sick, despondent, tired with all, looks joyless round, and sees the dungeon wall.

— Scipio
