Overcoming loneliness

Excerpted from Radio Program No. 119, part of the radio series The Bible Speaks to You,
reprinted from the July 18, 1964, Sentinel.

This radio series was published in the Christian Science Sentinel without the names of the interviewers and speakers. 

Interviewer: Loneliness is a familiar problem. In his book, Love and Conflict, Gibson Winter spoke of the excessive loneliness created by industrial society. He said: “It is one thing to be alone in order to be quiet and recollect oneself. This is creative aloneness.… On the other hand, there is a kind of loneliness which comes from being isolated.… It is the estrangement of the isolated person who moves anonymously in the midst of crowds” (© 1958, by Gibson Winter, Doubleday and Company, Incorporated, New York, NY).

What about this? What about the separation people feel from family and friends?
