That Bit of Needed Quiet Time

british_columbiaWe seek out retreats for ourselves, cottages in the country, lonely seashores and mountains. You, too, are disposed to hanker greatly after such things: and yet all this is the very commonest stupidity; for it is in your power, whenever you wish, to retire into yourself: and nowhere is there any place that a [person] may retire to that is quieter and more free from politics than their own soul.

Marcus Aurelius
