Despite the fact that the introvert is a romanticized figure, in practice the introvert is reviled and pitied. (And offered pharmaceutical cures for her unfortunate existential defect.)…I don’t not want to be your friend. I just don’t want to dance with you.

– Meghan Tifft, The Agony of Community:An Introverted Writer’s Lament

You can work more. You can save more. Or you can want less.

“The exercise of centering oneself is a simple one. Stop thinking of what you intend to do. Stop thinking of what you have just done. Then, stop thinking that you have stopped thinking of these things. Then you will find the NOW, the time that stretches eternal, and is really the only time there is. In that place you will finally have time to be yourself.”
