Today I found a quote which if you ask me applies wonderfully to our society. "We're born alone, we live alone, we die alone.Only through our love and friendship we can create the illusion for the moment that we are not alone"-Orson Wells. If you ask me, my life experience showed me that love and friendship are indeed only an illusion. I believe that our loneliness feeling depends only of our availability to cheat ourself s believing that we ARE NOT ALONE.

Wow, you really make me felt the impact of POWER of Love. Loneliness is unavoidable, but with love, kindness and sharing, we make this world a better place to live. So let us spread love to everyone that we love so they do not feel the loneliness inside them. Even though it is an illusion, it bring joys, warmth and happiness on earth.

I agree. Although they are just an illusion, love and friendship are the ones who help us get up in the morning. The problem is that sometimes we receive a false love in change.

In my experience, having my family always being there with me, plus the number of friends that I have encountered along the way, I can say that my life had never been alone. Aside from that, I also believe that God is always there for me, especially in times of trouble. So I can say that at least for me, I never been alone, I don't agree much in that quote. Good day!

In our family, whenever a member is having a problem, other members are always there to support and help. Aside from that, we also have friends and love ones that are also always willing to help. I believe we all have friends and families, so we should not feel alone. Aside from that, we can always ask God for help, and he will surely help us. I can only say that a man is alone if he don't have friends or families which I think very seldom to happen.

I guess some of us will recognize themselves completely in that quote, while the lucky ones like you will combat that saying. If you have found real friendship and family love in the world that we live, you can consider yourself one of the fewest lucky persons

As I said you are lucky. You will be amazed to find out how many persons are not blessed with a good family to rely on, and how many fake friends some of us have meet in their life. In the society today many persons are fake and they only build interest friendships. They keep you close while they need you.

We are born alone; we die alone; but we do not live alone. “No man is an island”. Life may be an illusion but true love is not an illusion. That is why this quote says that through love and friendship we create the illusion that we are not alone. It refers particularly to the transience of man’s life. I could not fully comprehend the last sentence of yours.

True love is not an illusion, but is very rare. Many friendships and love relations nowadays are false. In my last sentence I was referring at those persons who feel comfortable to lie themselves in oder to never be lonely, because although they know that they are surrounded by false friends they prefer to close their eyes and convince themselves that they are really loved.

Family members and friends are important in our lives. We live in a society and our activities are inter-related. These people bring joys and we share happiness together. However, as you mentioned ...we were born alone and we will leave this world alone too. No one can help pertaining to this occurrences.

Family and friends are in deed important, but not all of us are lucky to have a good family and to have true friends. Some of us are also passing through the life on their own!

Hi friend, I agree that we are born alone and we die alone, but I don't agree that we live alone. I think we do not live alone. We live with other people includes our family. I think having family is a great bless in our life. I never feel live alone. I think this quote written down by a person who despair in his life.

Yes we all have family, but there is also a quote which says that we don't choose our family. Many persons are not lucky and they don't have good family members. This is why some of us are always lonely, because we are surrounded by family and friends but they are never there when we need them.

I also believe in that. Actually, we all are just an illusion, just like a virtual role-playing game.

good day to you pandora22, at some point i do agree with the quote that you have posted, though, i have read another quote that tells about an individual. hence, this quote is exactly the opposite that you have posted. and it says, "no man is an island", which means, nobody can live alone. thus, each and everyone needs somebody to be with, either a friend to be with, a companion, a comrade or a man looking a woman to be his wife.

Hello Yes, it is impossible to live alone. But I was more referring at the fact that although we are surrounded by friends and relatives, we never know if all of these relations are sincere. I know many persons who love to believe that they are popular and people love them, but their friends are talking really bad about them once the specific person is not around. We are tangled in social relations, but how to know which is true and which is a fake. Many persons agree that although they have a perfect social life, they feel very lonely.

Nobody is born alone. Simply...many are happy when a baby is born. God is always with us. So...nobody is born alone. Love create magic....magical moment.

I believed , human beings are social being ! We need to interact with others ! We need other people to grow . It is hard to live alone in this world , life would only be more meaningful if being shared . Even our church teaching reminded us that God said , go to he world and multiply . It simply meant that God made human being so they won't be alone but have a company to make her happy and lean on.

I sometimes believe that our purpose in life is to find our soul mate, but sometimes we are unable to find it. Or most of the time. My dilemma is how to notice a real relation and friendship from a false one. We usually figure this out when the other one shows it's real face!

I do belive it ! Freidnship relaitonships is just something we create to take us "out of misery" . Even if it´s with 2 real people or more we call that a connection that it´s bewtwen 2 lonely people somehow. But that doens´t mean having a relashioship it´s bad because in our head we like it :D it´s diferent from the usual it´s more vivid. LOner that´s it´s lonely , only the loner get itself a relahioship.

Building relationships is a good thing definitely. It is our way of living. It is our way to make our life easier and beautiful. I believe that we must be aware that any realization, no matter how wonderful and sincere it seems, it can turn bad and the person can turn into a totally stranger. This way we would not suffer so much when is over.
