In one X-Men comic in the 1980s, Kitty Pryde was having trouble in her relationship with Wolverine. She confided in Storm, and Storm offered less solace than expected. Part of Storm's response was:
"Ultimately, we live our lives alone."
I may have the roles of Storm and Wolverine reversed; that is, Kitty may have been confiding in Wolverine about her troubles with Storm. It has been so long I have forgotten.
I think the issue I'm asking about comes before the first Brood saga – around #165 on Jan 1983 – but I'm not even sure about that. If I'm correct, that means the issue I'm seeking would be between 129 and 162.
