But then you get used to that person, and you begin to be completely dependent on them. Now you think about him for three hours and forget him for two minutes.

The poverty in the West is a different kind of poverty -- it is not only a poverty of loneliness but also of spirituality. There's a hunger for love, as there is a hunger for God.
