I used to feel so alone in the city

I used to feel so alone in the city. All those gazillions of people and then me, on the outside. Because how do you meet a new person? I was very stumped by this for many years. And then I realized, you just say, Hi. They may ignore you. Or you may marry them. And that possibility is worth one word.

~ Augusten Burroughs
