I’ve always liked quiet people: You never know if they’re dancing in a daydream or if they’re carrying the weight of the world.
John Green, Looking for Alaska

“Being alone has a power over me that never fails. My interior dissolves (for the time being only superficially) and is ready to release what lies deeper. When I am willfully alone, a slight ordering of my interior begins to take place and I need nothing more.”
― Franz Kafka, Diaries

I have this storm in my head... In my soul... And I can't calm it, I can't stop it... I can't get used to it either, I can't find peace with myself... I wish I could stop and silence my life and lousy mind.

I'm going to attempt to return to the earth now. The onboard system indicates I'll be arriving in approximately 41 days and 9 hours. My journey will have kept me in an isolate state for a considerable period by that time. I...I am very much looking forward to the day that solitude ends. Over.

That feeling- when you finish a book and time has seemed to have stopped, and the silence of your surroundings is overcome by your deafening thoughts, and it feels as if you lost a piece of your soul but gained so much more in return- that is true love.

Lascia che ti considerino superba e presuntuosa perché non ami mescolarti con la massa. D’altra parte, tu alle pecore hai sempre preferito il lupo.

“Oh God, what a good helper You are! Hear and respond to the cry of those in difficulty.
Oh God, there are so many traps, so many baits, and we are like hungry, greedy birds.
Every moment we’re caught in a new snare, even when we might become a falcon or bird of the Heavens.
Oh You, who are without need, each moment You free us, and then again we fall into another trap.”
- Jalaluddin Rumi

La solitudine non è la mancanza di persone con cui parlare, mangiare,
passeggiare o fare l’amore.
Quella si chiama Carenza.
La solitudine non è ciò che sentiamo per l’assenza di coloro che amiamo,
e che non torneranno.
Quella si chiama Malinconia.
La solitudine non è il ritiro volontario che le persone, a volte, impongono a se stesse nel tentativo di ricostruire i propri pensieri.
Quello si chiama Equilibrio.
La solitudine non è il claustro involontario che il destino ci infligge
affinché possiamo riappropriarci della nostra vita.
Quello si chiama Principio di natura.
La solitudine non è il vuoto intorno a noi.
Quella si chiama Circostanza.
La solitudine è molto più di questo.
La solitudine è ciò che arriva quando smarriamo noi stessi
e girovaghiamo invano alla ricerca di quella che una volta
è stata la nostra anima.
- Chico Buarque de Holanda

'It seems only natural to wish for solitude; I'm sure the stars do— wish they could twinkle, if only for ten minutes, alone; perhaps the peaks of the mountains come to despise the company of the wind; perhaps the flowers imagine that their fellows had never grown.'
'lonely thoughts,' - Megan's Poetry #1077
