Living in isolation will not bring happiness in you and if at all you feel happy, it would be only a temporary phenomenon. All people do not have all good habits and each and every one has his/her own defects and therefore, even a happy man needs a society to share and enjoy.
Friendship is the ultimate key to happiness and to be happy for ever, you have to develop friendship with the people, who are very close to your hearts.
