Thought For The Day

Quote #1

“After an hour or two of being socially ‘on’, we introverts need to turn off and recharge. My own formula is roughly two hours alone for every hour of socializing. This isn’t antisocial. It isn’t a sign of depression. It does not call for medication. For introverts, to be alone with our thoughts is as restorative as sleeping, as nourishing as eating. Our motto: ‘I’m okay, you’re okay – in small doses.” (Jonathan Rauch)

Quote #2

“Deep in my heart I know I am a loner. I have tried to blend in with the world and be sociable, but the more people I meet the more disappointed I am, so I’ve learned to enjoy myself, my family, and a few good friends.” (Steve Aitchison)

Quote #3

“Some of the most famous people in history were introverts including Gandhi, Mother Teresa, St. Augustine, and even Jesus, who each knew how very important it was to spend time alone to connect with God.” (Andrew Arthur Dawson)
