Jean-Jacques Rousseau Quote

J. J. did not always flee from men, but he has always loved solitude. He enjoyed himself with the friends he velieved he had, but he enjoyed himself still more alone. He valued their society, but he sometimes needed to withdraw, and he would perhaps have preferred to live always alone than always with them.


Second Dialogue - Dialogues: Rousseau Judge of Jean-Jacques (published 1782)
