Solitude

“Utterly superficial nonpersons and group-people feel such a meager need for solitude that, like lovebirds, they promptly die the moment they have to be alone…in the constant sociality of our day we shrink from solitude to the point that no use for it is known other than as a punishment for criminals. But since it is a crime in our day to have spirit, it is indeed quite in order to classify such people, lovers of solitude, with criminals.” ~Søren Kierkegaard
