By all means use sometimes to be alone. Salute thyself: see what thy soul doth wear. Dare to look in thy chest; for 'Tis thine own: And tumble up and down what thou findst there. Who cannot rest till he good fellows find, he breaks up house, turns out of doors his mind.


George Herbert

George Herbert (April 3, 1593 - March 1, 1633) was a Welsh-born English poet, orator and Anglican priest

    हर तरह से कभी-कभी अकेले होने के लिए उपयोग करें। अपने आप को सलाम करें: देखें कि आपकी आत्मा क्या पहनती है। तेरी छाती में देखने की हिम्मत; 'तीस तेरा अपना: के लिए और नीचे तू जो कुछ मिलता है उसे तुतलाता है। जो तब तक आराम नहीं कर सकता जब तक कि वह अच्छी संगति न पा ले, वह घर तोड़ देता है, अपने मन के दरवाजे खोल देता है।


    gebruik in elk geval soms om alleen te zijn. groet uzelf; zie wat uw ziel draagt. durf in je borst te kijken; want het is van u; en tuimelt op en neer wat u daar vindt. die niet kan rusten totdat hij goede kerels vindt, hij het huis opsplitst, zijn geest verlaat.
