It's where I find true peace.

My wits become police.

    ''One hath said, 'As oft as I have gone among men, so oft have I returned less a man.' This is what we often experience when we have been long time in conversation. For it is easier to be altogether silent than it is not to exceed in word. It is easier to remain hidden at home than to keep sufficient guard upon thyself out of doors.'' - Thomas Kempis, 'Of the Love of Solitude and Silence'(Report)Reply
