The benefit of solitude

Artist: Giovanni Fattori

It grieves me when people have an aversion to being alone, who have not discovered the richness of a purposeful and chosen solitude. Here's a little encouragement in that regard:

We need not wings to go in search of Him, but have only to find a place where we can be alone -- and look upon Him present within us.

- Teresa of Avila
