"I only go out to get me a fresh appetite for being alone."

Lord Byron

"In order to be open to creativity,
one must have the capcity
for contructive use of solitude.

One must overcome the fear of being alone."

Rollo May

"When I am, as it were, completely myself,
entirely alone, and of good cheer -

say, traveling in a carriage,
or walking after a good meal,
or during the night when I cannot sleep;

it is on such occasions
that my ideas flow best and most abundantly."

Wolfgang Mozart

"I feel more and more detached
from the outside world,
from crowds, from the public
and from anything mechanized.

I prefer mainly to be alone."

Leonore Fini

"The artist must actively cultivate
that state which most people avoid:
the state of being alone."

James Baldwin

"I try more and more to be myself,
caring relatively little
whether people approve or dissaprove."

Vincent Van Gogh

"I am aware of connectiveness,
it is impossible to be isolated completely,
but my interest is in solely finding my own way.

I don't mind being miles away
from everybody else."

Eva Hesse
