"To go into solitude, a man needs to retire as much from his chamber as from society. I am not solitary whilst I read and write, though obody is with me. But if a man would be alone, let him look at the stars. The rays that come from those heavenly worlds will separate between him and what he touches. One might think the atmosphere was made transparent with this design, to give man, in the heavenly bodies, the perpetual presence of the sublime."
