"I got a feeling that there should be the same thing for us. I know from my own experience, if you’re on your own all night and you feel like isolated. It might enable something to grow, whether it does or not, that's like up to yourself but at least you're enabled, you're not suppressed. It would be like a garden, if you create the environment it'll happen, something will happen."
