It is easy in the world to live after the world's opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson
I love solitude. I love being with my people. But I really love Emerson.P.S. Thank you for your always insightful, and thoughtful, and sometimes sassy commentary. Currently don't have a desktop so frustrated with the desire to write with nary an optimal opportunity or way.
Makes me think of Teddy Roosevelt"Do what you can, with what you have, where you are."
