monasticme:

Quid vero solitudo heremique silentium amatoribus suis utilitatis incudnitatisque divinae conferat, norunt hi soli qui experti sunt

Only those who have experienced the solitude and the silence of the wilderness, can know the benefit and divine joy they bring to those who love them.

Saint Bruno   

When the time comes for you to move from the crowds, the cheering friends, the hugs, the kisses – to the place of solitude. To the place of loneliness. To the place of desolation. Then you will understand how a single look. A syllable of a word spoken directly to you. A smile. Can change everything.

To see the heart of another, when your soul has been depleted of even its own essence, is paradise on earth. It is the face of Christ.
