It was a pleasant hillside where I worked, covered with pine woods, through which I looked out on the pond, and a small open field in the woods where pines and hickories were springing up. The other focuses on the representation of solitude in the paintings of American impressionist Walter Launt Palmer Price. To know this I should not need to look farther than to the shanties which every where border our railroads, that last improvement in civilization; where I see in my daily walks human beings living in sties, and all winter with an open door, for the sake of light, without any visible, often imaginable, wood pile, and the forms of both old and young are permanently contracted by the long habit of shrinking from cold and misery, and the development of all their limbs and faculties is checked. Thoreau was restless indoors. If a man was to compare the effect of a single stroke with the pick-axe, or of one impression of a spade, with the general design and last result, he would be overwhelmed with the sense of their disproportion; yet those petty operations, incessantly continued, in time surmount the greatest difficulties; and mountains are levelled, and oceans bounded by the slender force of human beings. Economy in all things spelled freedom to the man from Concord.

The collection covers a time frame of American cultures of solitude ranging from the eighteenth century to today. At a [46]. Solitude amply compensates for every privation, while the devotee of worldly pleasures conceives himself lost if he is deprived of visiting a fashionable assembly, of attending a favorite club, of seeing a new play, of patronizing a celebrated boxer, or of admiring some foreign novelty which the hand-bills of the day have announced. Do I, in my medical character, feel any malignity or hatred to the species, when I study the nature, and explore the secret causes of those weaknesses and disorders which are incidental to the human frame? We must not proceed in forming the moral character, as a statuary proceeds in forming a statue, who works sometimes on the face, sometimes on one part, and sometimes on an other; but we must proceed, and it is in our power to proceed, as nature does in forming a flower, or any other of her productions; rudimenta partium omnium simul parit et producit: she throws out altogether, and at once, the whole system of every being, and the rudiments of all the parts.

From such a being no good can be expected; he cannot pursue any useful science, or possess the faculties of a great man. The collection covers a time frame of American cultures of solitude ranging from the eighteenth century to today. Heraclius [45] descended from his throne to devote his mind to the search of truth. I sometimes try my acquaintances by such tests as this;—who could wear a patch, or two extra seams only, over the knee?

A broad interdisciplinary consideration of the diversity and variety of cultural forms and representations of social retreat in the US is a desideratum. The ice in the pond was not yet dissolved, though there Solitude considered with respect to its influence upon the mind and heart book some open spaces, and it was all dark colored and saturated with water.

Every thing floats loose and disjointed on the surface of their minds, like leaves scattered and blown about on the face of the waters. Thus also the snake casts its slough, and the caterpillar its wormy coat, by an internal industry and expansion; for clothes are but our outmost cuticle and mortal coil.

Characters of this description, it may be said, are no longer to be found; but in my opinion both the idea and assertion would be erroneous. The stars are the apexes of what wonderful triangles! Better paint your house your own complexion; let it turn pale or blush for you.

The profligacy of the world, where vice usurps the seat of greatness, hypocrisy assumes the face of candor, and prejudice overpowers the voice of truth, must, indeed, sting his bosom with the keenest sensations of mortification and regret; but cast his philosophic eye over the disordered scene, he will separate what ought to be indulged from what ought not to be endured; and by a happy, well-timed stroke of satire from his pen, will destroy the bloom of vice, disappoint machinations of hipocrisy, and expose the fallacies on which prejudice is founded.

Loomis finds six areas or topics of interest that Thoreau shares with Zimmermann: 1. The path to spiritual enlightenment is often paved by the neglect of bodily needs. The mind feels a pleasure in the exercise of its powers proportioned to the difficulties it meets with, and the obstacles it has to surmount.

I see young men, my townsmen, whose misfortune it is to have inherited farms, houses, barns, cattle, and farming tools; for these are more easily acquired than got rid of.

He consorted with monarchs and was distinctly patriotic. The enemy will find it out. It was the natural yearning of that portion of our most primitive ancestor which still survived in us.

The celebrated Correggio had so seldom been rewarded during his life, that the paltry payment of ten pistoles of German coin, and which he was obliged to travel as far as Parma, to receive, created in his mind a joy so excessive, that it caused his death.

Charmed with the natural beauties of this rural retreat, he adorned it with an excellent library, and dwelt, for many years, in wise tranquillity and rational repose, employing his leisure in completing and polishing his works: and producing more original compositions during this period than at any other of his life.

Solitude by Zimmerman

These will be good ventures. I have met one or two who had heard the hound, and the tramp of the horse, and even seen the dove disappear behind a cloud, and they seemed as anxious to recover them as if they had lost them themselves.

Economy is a subject which admits of being treated with levity, but it cannot so be disposed of. I thus found that the student who wishes for a shelter can obtain one for a lifetime at an expense not greater than the rent which he now pays annually. From the desperate city you go into the desperate country, and have to console yourself with the bravery of minks and muskrats.

By living as a recluse in nature, she successfully defied traditional gender roles Edwards; Urbanik. To employ our time with economy, we should frequently reflect how many hours escape from us against our inclination.Solitude considered, with respect to its influence upon the mind and the heart.
