The Opposite Of Loneliness

This 22-year-old Yale graduate, Marina Keegan, who penned her last column for the Yale Daily News entitled “The Opposite Of Loneliness“, passed away a few days later in a car accident. Little did she know that those would be her final words for her testimony on life.

The article was picked up by the mainstream news after Yale placed it online and within days it has become viral. Here are a few of her quotes from the article itself.

We don’t have a word for the opposite of loneliness, but if we did, I could say that’s what I want in life.


We’re so young. We’re so young. We’re twenty-two years old. We have so much time.


What we have to remember is that we can still do anything. We can change our minds. We can start over.


We’re in this together, 2012. Let’s make something happen to this world.
