[underlined] REFLECTION [/underlined]

I do not think a man can ever be so lonely as when he is alone and hunted like an animal in a strange and hostile land, cold, wet and hungry, where he can be sure every man will be turned against him, some with murderous intent. There will be no help forthcoming from any quarter, he has no companion to support him, to talk things over with, to plan ahead. There is no thing or person beside him, he has nothing but his own resources, and he must stand alone on his own two feet. Although the chances of a happy outcome are remote, if in fact they exist at all, while there is life there is hope. It is raining and there is no shelter. But hang on in there.
