I was very depressed when I was 19... I would go back to my apartment every day and I would just sit there. It was quiet and it was lonely. It was still. It was just my piano and myself. I had a television and I would leave it on all the time just to feel like somebody was hanging out with me.

One reason most people never stop thinking is that mental frenzy keeps us from having to see the upsetting aspects of our lives.

What is the opposite of two? A lonely me, a lonely you.

Years ago I met Richard Burton in Port Talbot, my home town, and afterwards he passed in his car with his wife, and I thought, 'I want to get out and become like him'.

Sometimes I get lonely, but it's nice to be alone.
