"The person who tries to live alone will not succeed as a human being. His heart withers if it does not answer another heart. His mind shrinks away if he hears only the echoes of his own thoughts and finds no other inspiration." (Perl S. Buck)
Perl S. Buck has written these wise words long before research has confirmed that without good relationships we will not grasp completely who we are, we will struggle with mental problems such as depression or anxiety, and we might even get physically ill.
