Only when you realize that you are not a member of the family, a man or a woman, but an individual,  you will become 'lonely' and 'be flown to the world,' says the fashion illustrator says. He continues, "In the loneliness, you have a thirst for the existence of others and are driven by 'the impulse to connect to the world,' when true romance and work are born."  From "Adult Women are Beautiful."
