Better a frustrated celibate

Not that I really feel this way, but it’s a beautiful description of a way we’ve all felt at one point or another.

Solitude and loneliness—two things which had once driven him to suicidal despair—were now embraced with dark satisfaction. Better, he’d think—setting off on another adventure to the edge of the world and beyond—to be a frustrated celibate than suffer the agonies of love one more wretched time.
