Sunday Citar - The Need to Be Alone
We are rarely proud when we are alone. - Voltaire
The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be. - Anne Frank
Inside myself is a place where I live all alone and that is where I renew my springs that never dry up. - Pearl S. Buck
When they are alone they want to be with others, and when they are with others they want to be alone. After all, human beings are like that. - Gertrude Stein
When I discovered this painting, the first thought that came to me was that the princess longed to be alone. There is comfort in finding time to be alone. Living as royalty must have been such a stifling life. I imagine that those precious moments alone would be treasured by someone so under the microscope of all around her.
