Without solitude it is virtually impossible to live a spiritual life. Solitude begins with a time and a place for God, and him alone. If we really believe not only that God exists but also that he is actively present in our lives–healing, teaching, and guiding–we need to set aside a time and space to give him our undivided attention.

~ Henri Nouwen in Making All Things New
