A person who does not know how to use his mind productively will flee from the state of being alone. But when a person has learned how to think, he will greatly appreciate the moments when he is by himself, for then he will be able to utilize those moments for intellectual and spiritual growth.
During a quiet moment today, appreciate the value of being alone.
(see Alai Shur, vol.1, p.178; Gateway to Happiness, p.73)
