"A creation of importance can only be produced when its author isolates himself, it is a child of solitude"
- Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
About this Quote
This quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe recommends that in order to develop something of value, one need to want to isolate themselves from the world. This is since the development is an item of privacy, as well as it is only with this isolation that can truly focus on the task available. This concept is further strengthened by the metaphor of the production being a "kid of seclusion", suggesting that it is just through the process of being alone that the production can be birthed. This quote is a reminder that in order to create something of significance, one need to be willing to take the time to be alone and also focus on the job available. It is just with this process of isolation that a person can genuinely create something of value.
