Quotable quotes

Posted on: March 27, 2016

I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude. -- Thoreau
I like taking public transport because I can read and work on the train or bus. The journeys give me a limited time to do something focused.

Unfortunately, no matter how efficient public transport might get, it suffers from one unavoidable flaw. It is public and often attracts the loud and boorish.

That is why I think that one of the best modern inventions is noise-cancelling headphones. These marvels of human ingenuity are expensive, but they help create “companionable solitude” by some measure. That peace amid the din is what enables me to think and work.
