I go into solitude so as not to drink out of everybody’s cistern. When I am among the many I live as the many do, and I do not think as I really think. After a time it always seems as if they want to banish my self from myself and rob me of my soul.
It is awfully easy to be hard-boiled about everything in the daytime, but at night it is another thing.
Protect your peace. Get rid of toxicity. Cleanse your space. Cultivate love.
