isolation

A Quote by Anne Lamott on writing, writers, alone, loneliness, isolation, connection, and life

Writing and reading decrease our sense of isolation. They deepen and widen and expand our sense of life; they feed the soul. When writers make us shake our heads with the exactness of their prose and their truths, and even make us laugh about ourselves or life, our buoyancy is restored. We are given a shot at dancing with, or at least clapping along with, the absurdity of life, instead of being squashed by it over and over again. It's like singing on a boat during a terrible storm at sea. You can't stop the raging storm, but singing can change the hearts and spirits of the people who are together on that ship.

A Quote by Henry David Thoreau on deliberateness, intention, self-knowledge, isolation, solitude, life, walden pond, and woods

I went to the woods because I wished to live dliberately... and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.
