Point of Solitude

"The point of passing time in solitude is to strip yourself bare, to discover what is essential and true. When you're stripped down to this point, you see how little you amount to. But that little is all that God is interested in. He doesn't give a damn about the rest." (taken from the Music of Silence by Phyllis Rose, an essay written in Atlantic Monthly, 1997)
