“Each day without solitude weakened me.”

“I was a man who thrived on solitude; without it I was like another man without food or water.  Each day without solitude weakened me.  I took no pride in my solitude; but I was dependent on it.  The darkness of the room was like sunlight to me.”

— Charles Bukowski
