and settle into its mystery, your relationships with others take on a new
warmth, adventure and wonder.

solitude expresses the glory of being alone.

that something is difficult must be a reason the more for us to do it.

and which, rightly understood, is solitude made perfect.

to spend time out in the desert in solitude. It’s no coincidence that the desert has been
a major part of the visionary or mystical experience from the beginning of time.

The monotony and solitude of a quiet life stimulates the creative mind.
