Here are a few quotes on the effects of loneliness (a manifestation of introversion) upon the creative state of the artist. I find these to be true and they reinforce my idea that the I should work at the FMP in a state of total loneliness and recluseness.

“Talent is nurtured in solitude … A creation of importance can only be produced when its author isolates himself, it is a child of solitude.” ~ Johann Wolfgang Von Göethe

“Wrting is utter solitude, the descent into the cold abyss of oneself.” ~ Franz Kafka

“The mind is sharper and keener in seclusion and uninterrupted solitude. Originality thrives in seclusion free of outside influences beating upon us to cripple the creative mind. Be alone—that is the secret of invention: be alone, that is when ideas are born.” ~ Nikola Tesla

“Without great solitude no serious work is possible.” ~ Pablo Picasso

“… practically all creative people, and certainly most geniuses, have preferred to be alone for long periods, especially when producing their best work.” ~ Raj Persaud, ‘One Hundred Tears of Solitude’

“I’m gonna go live in a cave, just completely live in my interior world.” ~ Tim Burton

“The monotony and solitude of a quiet life stimulates the creative mind.”  ~ Albert Einstein
