A Note on a Pascal Quote

I can't find it now but a few years ago a Philadelphia blogger posted a quote from Blaise Pascal: All of humanity's problems stem from man's inability to sit quietly in a room alone.

It struck me as being very profound though that could be an introvert's general mistrust of crowds.

This evening Christian Martin's blog had a post including a video called "How to be alone," that gives step by step instructions on becoming comfortable being alone. It is quite charming, simple, and an excellent primer for those who are antsy when solely in their own company.
