“I waited alone, in the company of orchids, roses and violets wholike people waiting beside you, but to whom you are unknownmaintained a silence which their individuality of living things rendered more imposing and in their chilly manner received the heat from an incandescent coal fire, preciously placed behind a crystal glass, in a white marble tub where it dropped, from time to time, its dangerous rubies.”
—Marcel Proust (18711922)

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me.
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
—Emma Lazarus (18491887)
“People who abhor solitude may abhor company almost as much.”
