4 solitude quotes I like

“There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more”
~~~ George Gordon Byron

 “The more powerful and original a mind, the more it will incline towards the religion of solitude.”
~~~ Aldous Huxley

 “Solitude gives birth to the original in us, to beauty unfamiliar and perilous – to poetry. But also, it gives birth to the opposite: to the perverse, the illicit, the absurd.”
~~~ Thomas Mann, Death in Venice and Other Tales

 “In order to understand the world, one has to turn away from it on occasion.”
~~~ Albert Camus, The Myth of Sisyphus and Other Essays
