Sara Maitland
“This about it for a moment. It is truly very odd.
We apparently believe that we own our own bodies as possessions and should be allowed to do with them more or less anything we choose, from euthanasia to a boob job, but we do not want to be on our own with these precise possessions.
We live in a society which sees high self-esteem as a proof of well-being, but we do not want to be intimate with this admirable and desirable person.
We see moral and social conventions as inhibitions on our personal freedoms, and yet we are frightened of anyone who goes away from the crowd and develops 'eccentric' habits.
We believe that everyone has a singular personal 'voice' and is, moreover, unquestionably creative, but we treat with dark suspicion (at best) anyone who uses one of the most clearly established methods of developing that creativity - solitude.
We think we are unique, special and deserving of happiness, but we are terrified of being alone.
We declare that personal freedom and autonomy is both a right and good, but we think anyone who exercises that freedom autonomously is 'sad, mad or bad'. Or all three at once.”
Sara Maitland, How to Be Alone

“Najchętniej jestem sam, wtedy nikt mi nie przeszkadza. Bo wszyscy stale wracają do tematu [...]. Z pewnością i ja tak dawniej żyłem, ale teraz nie umiem się do tego przystosować. Za wiele gadają. Mają troski, cele, życzenia, których nie mogę ujmować tak jak oni. [...] Tak są podzieleni, rozdrobnieni, żaden nie odczuwa tego całym swym jestestwem; ja sam nie umiem dobrze określić, co mam na myśli.”
Remarque Erich Maria del Bourgo Maurice, All Quiet on the Western Front
