About this Quote

This quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe speaks with the concept that one can learn and be instructed in the company of others, however real inspiration and creativity can just be discovered in solitude. This is due to the fact that when we are alone, we are complimentary to explore our own thoughts and concepts without the influence of others. We can put in the time to assess our experiences and sensations, and utilize them to produce something new. In privacy, we can be open to new ideas and point of views, and can discover the guts to reveal ourselves without worry of judgement. Solitude can also supply us with the space to think deeply and to discover our own distinct voice. Eventually, it is in privacy that we can find the inspiration to create something genuinely significant.
