Being alone

These two quotations perhaps sum up the desire for solitude:

"Hell is other people."
Jean-Paul Sartre (1905-1980)

"Do I know where hell is? Hell is in hello"
Lee Marvin (1924-1987) in the song 'Wand'rin' Star' from the movie 'Paint Your Wagon'.

The next line of the song being:
"Heaven is goodbye for ever, it's time for me to go."
