Solitude can be Fortitude:

“You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet, still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.” Franz Kafka

My Inspired Comment:
In solitude, you have the fortitude to introspect.
This is other than being an introvert. It is a purposeful search for inner realization.
Deep introspection demands the courage to isolate oneself and delve within one’s own inner world.
Low and below, the limited microcosm within thee connects to the wider macrocosm universally ever-present and primordial.
