A quote (agree?)

"It's no good trying to get rid of your own aloneness. You've got to stick to it all your life. Only at times, at times, the gap will be filled in. At times! But you have to wait for the times. Accept your own aloneness and stick to it, all your life. And then accept the times when the gap is filled in, when they come. But they've got to come. You can't force them."
Lady Chatterley's Lover by D. H. Lawrence*

*D.H. Lawrence died young at age of 45 but left deep imprints on English literature, though many of his ideas were inhumane and disgusting. He has a rare distinction of his novel (Lady Chatterley's Lover) going through court trial for publication after 30 years of his death! Not only his life was full of controversies but even his death was a story. Five years after his death, his body was exhumed, cremated and ashes were brought from Europe to America for burial at his favorite ranch and one time home in New Mexico.

It is, for the lack of better word, beautiful.

I did not read it or if I did I do not remember. Somehow I thought D H Lawrence was Saadat H Minto of English lit. But that is a feeling I d o not subscribe to now because I would have to read both writers more extensively to make such opinion
I have to see the motive of the writer before I see what point he is trying to make

Uncle: He was described in his life as God of erotica, nudity in his writings (probably that's why he was called like Minto) but he strongly believed in class system and ruling/serving classes. Some of his comments for common men were very disgusting.
