Well, it seems to me that the best relationships - the ones that last - are frequently the ones that are rooted in friendship.

Gillian Anderson Quotes 555701

I once had to say this on a show many years ago, and I truly believe it: Loneliness is a choice. I like to be alone; I'm more comfortable alone. But I do recognize that I take it too far sometimes and so I try to force myself to keep up with being sociable. I just am a bit of a lone ranger; I always have been. But I don't believe that necessarily has to translate to being lonely. You can be lonely in a crowd of a thousand people. I can be in a hotel room on my own and not feel lonely. It all comes down to how comfortable you are with who you are in the silence. — Gillian Anderson

Gillian Anderson Quotes 1060470

I know people who are embarrassed to be American. They don't like showing their passports. It's becoming a scary place.
