„The seraphs descend from heaven, in the solitudes of meditation, in the stillness of prayer.“

I. SPIRIT, 10. Solitude
Orphic Sayings
Kontext: Solitude is Wisdom’s school. Attend then the lessons of your own soul; become a pupil of the wise God within you, for by his tuitions alone shall you grow into the knowledge and stature of the deities. The seraphs descend from heaven, in the solitudes of meditation, in the stillness of prayer.

In the wide waste there still is a tree,
And a bird in the solitude singing,
Which speaks to my spirit of thee.“

„Solitude is fine, but you need someone to tell you that solitude is fine.“

—  Honoré de Balzac French writer 1799 - 1850

La solitude est certainement une belle chose, mais il y a plaisir d'avoir quelqu'un qui sache répondre, à qui on puisse dire de temps en temps, que c'est un belle chose. (Solitude is certainly a fine thing; but there is pleasure in having someone who can answer, from time to time, that it is a fine thing.) —Jean-Louis Guez de Balzac, Dissertations chrétiennes et morales (1665), XVIII: "Les plaisirs de la vie retirée".
