"There is no way that writers can be tamed and rendered civilized or even cured. The only solution known to science is to provide the patient with an isolation room, where he can endure the acute stages in private and where food can be poked in to him with a stick."
~Robert A. Heinlein

"If isolation tempers the strong, it is the stumbling-block of the uncertain."
~Paul Cezanne

"A good artist should be isolated. If he isn't isolated, something is wrong."
~Orson Welles
