Carl Sandburg On Loneliness

31 08 2012

“Shakespeare, Leonardo da Vinci, Benjamin Franklin and Abraham Lincoln never saw a movie, heard a radio or looked at television. They had ‘Loneliness’ and knew what to do with it. They were not afraid of being lonely because they knew that was when the creative mood in them would work.”

–Carl Sandburg

I agree, Jennifer. Think of all the things that have been created simply because people didn’t surrender to the pain of loneliness but rather used it to advantage. Thanks for reading!
