Solitude

The thing Winch admired about Strange was that he really did not give a damn about anything. The others, like Winch, pretended that they did not but, really, they cared. Strange really did not. About anything. The Army, the outfit, his job, people, women, life or success or humanity. Strange pretended to care but really didn’t. He was completely alone inside himself and content with that. And for that Winch admired him.
