"People seek retreats for themselves in the countryside, by the seashore, in the hills; and you too have make it your habit to long for that above all else. But this is altogether unphilosophical, when it is possible for you to retreat into yourself whenever you please; for nowhere can one retreat into greater peace or freedom from care than within one's own soul, especially when that person has such things within him that he has merely to look at them to recover from that moment perfect ease of mind (and by ease of mind I mean nothing other than having one's mind in good order). So constantly grant yourself this retreat and so renew yourself..."

- Marcus Aurelius
