“People talk of “social outcasts.”
The words apparently denote the miserable
losers of the world, the vicious ones
but I feel as though I have been a “social outcast” from the moment I was born.
If ever I meet someone society has designated as an outcast,
I invariably feel affection for him,
an emotion which carries me away in melting tenderness.”

― Osamu Dazai, No Longer Human
