"What a terrible thing it is to wound someone you really care for and to do it so unconsciously."
Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood
"The beginning of love is the will to let those we love be perfectly themselves, the resolution not to twist them to fit our own image."
"You have played, (I think) and broke the toys you were fondest of, and are a little tired now; tired of things that break, and—Just tired. So am I."
E.E. Cummings, You are tired (I think)

"Yes, I guess you could say I am a loner, but I feel more lonely in a crowed room with boring people than I feel on my own."
I am curious as to what you define a true friend to be?
I’ve always liked the Buddha’s summation of a good friend: someone who is good, wise, and loving.
"If you cannot find a friend who is good, wise, and loving, walk alone, like a king who has renounced his kingdom, or an elephant roaming at will in the forest." ~ Buddha
But I think it’s more important to know what it means to truly be a friend to another, rather than defining what it means for another to be your true friend.
"I wanted to be missed, like water, like bread, like air, by all other people in all other places."
Jean-Paul Sartre, The Words
