“It is not society, but himself, who tells the man to remain strong. Though, the toxin as the addiction, whether of alcohol, the injection, the pill, or anger, is simply the disguise around hurt. Pain is always concealed by the addiction. Hurt is always avoided by turning to the addiction. By pretending to be strong, a man is avoiding being honest with others. By protecting himself, and no longer others, he is indeed a coward. His strength resides now in falsehoods, in the allurement. For if he were to break, he’d no longer break others.”

– Modern Romanticism
