Friday quote

Each one of us is alone in the world...... We seek pitifully to convey to others the treasures of our heart, but they have not the power to accept them, and so we go lonely, side by side but not together, unable to know our fellows and unknown by them. We are like people living in a country whose language they know so little that, with all manner of beautiful and profound things to say, they are condemned to the banalities of the conversation manual. Their brain is seething with ideas, and they can only tell you that the umbrella of the gardener's aunt is in the house.

- Somerset Maugham (Moon and Sixpence)

prema -just sharing my thoughts said...

hai, i very much agree that ultimately each one is alone.... but unlike what the writer says each one of us are not able to share the treasure of our heart... for what is treasure to speaker ,,, might not be sound so to the listener... for each one of us think we are right... are we ? ultimately a thought of a speck in the dot of the galaxy....
