Solitude


"Certain springs are tapped only when we are alone. The artist knows he must be alone to create; the writer, to work out his thoughts; the musician to compose, the saint to pray. But women need solitude in order to find again the true essence of themselves...the problem is more how to still the soul in the midst of activities. In fact the problem is how to feed the soul". ~ Anne Morrow Lindbergh

  1. Oh..how this quote speaks to me. I am always apologizing for my wish for time alone..and yet - it's what I so crave and need. Beautiful!

  2. I feel the exact same as Marcie. Wishing for solitude and feeling guilty for wanting it. My soul is in so much need of feeding lately...Beautiful quote Mary :-)
