Henry David Thoreau, Lord Byron, Rainer Maria Rilke

January 2

In solitude, where we are least alone. — Lord Byron

But your solitude will be a support and a home for you, even in the midst of very unfamiliar circumstances, and from it you will find all your paths. — Rainer Maria Rilke

I have an immense appetite for solitude, like an infant for sleep, and if I don’t get enough for this year, I shall cry all the next. — Henry David Thoreau

The necessary thing is after all but this; solitude, great inner solitude. Going into oneself for hours meeting no one – this one must be able to attain. — Rainer Maria Rilke
