When not speaking to himself, he wears a mask.  There is a solitude within him that is inaccessible to praise or blame.  (Genius & Greatness & Solitary & Superiority)  Friedrich Nietzsche

Which is the bliss of solitude.  William Wordsworth, I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud

What can its joys control?

Tumults and noise may not intrude,

To interrupt the soul.  Mary Mollineux, Solitude 1670

 

 

88,850.  Do not allow yourself to be imprisoned by any affection.  Keep your solitude.  The day, if it ever comes, when you are given true affection there will be no opposition between interior solitude and friendship, quite the reverse.  It is even by this infallible sign that you will recognize it.  (Solitary & Affection)  Simone Weil
