People try to get away from it all – to the country , to the beach, to the mountains. You always wish that you could too. Which is idiotic: you can get away with it anytime you like. By going within.
Nowhere you can go is more peaceful – more free of interruption – than your own soul. (…).
So keep getting away from it all – like that. Renew yourself. But keep it brief and basic. A quick visit should be enough to ward off all … and send you back ready to face what awaits you.
Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
