CONFUSE love and romance too long and you end up a suicide. Aloneness is the final, undeniable reality of life. Accept it, or struggle through one love affair after another, for a oneness which, because of its spiritual ring, is the worst, most destructive kind of illusion. All such love is unrequited. All such romance is the meanest kind of “sharing.” Sweet like a lump of sugar, caught in the throat.
