Consider the following wisdom:
“The thoughtful soul to solitude retires.” - Omar Khayyam

“Solitude, though it may be silent as light, is like light, the mightiest of agencies; for solitude is essential to man. All men come into this world alone and leave it alone.”
- Thomas de Quincey
“Alone let him constantly meditate in solitude on that which is salutary for his soul, for he who meditates in solitude attains supreme bliss.”
- Guru Nanak
“One can be instructed in society, one is inspired only in solitude.”
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
“Solitude is strength; to depend on the presence of the crowd is weakness. The man who needs a mob to nerve him is much more alone than he imagines.”
