"Freedom is the possibility of isolation. You are free if you can withdraw from people, not having to seek them out for the sake of money, company, love, glory or curiosity, none of which can thrive in silence and solitude. If you can’t live alone, you were born a slave."
- Fernando Pessoa - Bernardo Soares, ”The Book of Disquiet” (from Text 283)
