This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge is solitude. Here are some thoughts from writers of the past, accompanied by pictures I’ve chosen to reflect their thoughts.
“Let silence take you to the core of life.” –Rumi
“In solitude, where we are least alone.” — Lord Byron
“The quieter you become the more you are able to hear.” –Rumi
“And yet, there is a solitude, which each and every one of us has always carried with him, more inaccessible than the ice-cold mountains more profound than the midnight sea; the solitude of self. Our inner being, which we call ourself, no eye nor touch of man or angel has every pierced. It is more hidden than the caves of the gnome; the sacred adytum of the oracle; the hidden chamber of Eleusinian mystery; for to it only omniscience is permitted to enter. –Elizabeth Cady Stanton
