Furthermore, I do not think Gould's case is something *special*. I would never
call a lonely man unhappy, even if he is not rich and famous as Gould. It's as
simple as some people being introverts and enjoying every minute of their
loneliness or aloneness.

If a person wants bad to be in the public and can't achieve it, his life may be
sad. But if a person consciously chooses to live in a hut deep in a forest, how
can we judge him?
