“For one person, solitude is the escape of an invalid; for another, solitude is escape from the invalids.” ~Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra
“Language… has created the word ‘loneliness’ to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word ‘solitude’ to express the glory of being alone.” ~Paul Johannes Tillich, The Eternal Now
Lonely is he (who has lost his home)
for that harbor where his heart has moor’d.
But free is he (who the World has known)
who rests his hopes upon any shore.
~San Jaya Prime, At the End of the Way [excerpt]
