Ultimately, loneliness may be an affliction the intelligent have to bear as the price they pay for their intelligence. Whenever you feel down because you feel like you don’t fit in and never will, remember: you’re in good company.
“A great fire burns within me, but no one stops to warm themselves at it, and passers-by only see a wisp of smoke”
~ Vincent van Gogh
"The delights of a garden, age may add a further interest which can hardly be distinguished from beauty, for the mind, at least with those who have the historic instinct, is always longing to be connected with the past and nature, in this fairy world of echo and suggestion where the Present Age never comes but to commune with the Past, we feel the glamour of a Golden Age, of a state of society just and secure which has grown and blossomed as the rose."
- Sir George Sitwell, On the Making of Gardens, 1909
