A Thinker is Always Alone

lonely-road-03[1]

I have never found the companion that was so companionable
as solitude. We are for the most part more lonely when we go
abroad among men than when we stay in our chambers. A man
thinking or working is always alone, let him be where he will.

  1. Fully agree Eddie, I have found at times I am actually the lonelinest in a crowd.
    Inundated with conflicting interpretations on whats going on around me,
    creating inner turmoil giving no rest to the mind.
    Ian

  2. Yes, I often think of this brilliant, insightful quote–similar to the observation of that we never feel so alone as when we are in a crowd of people we don’t feel connected to. Thank you for the quote and evocative image, Eddie. xo
