Balance in Life Together
“Let him who cannot be alone beware of community...
Let him who is not in community beware of being alone...
Each by itself has profound perils and pitfalls.
One who wants fellowship without solitude
plunges into the void of words and feelings,
and the one who seeks solitude without fellowship
perishes in the abyss of vanity, self-infatuation and despair.”
― Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Life Together
