Withdraw thyself

You can, at any time you want, withdraw thyself. No retreat is more tranquil or less troubled for man than that which he finds in his soul.


Tu peux, à l’heure que tu veux, te retirer en toi-même. Nulle retraite n’est plus tranquille ni moins troublée pour l’homme que celle qu’il trouve en son âme.
