„The end comes when we no longer talk with ourselves. It is the end of genuine thinking and the beginning of the final loneliness.“

—  Eric Hoffer American philosopher 1902 - 1983
Context: The end comes when we no longer talk with ourselves. It is the end of genuine thinking and the beginning of the final loneliness. The remarkable thing is that the cessation of the inner dialogue marks also the end of our concern with the world around us. It is as if we noted the world and think about it only when we have to report it to ourselves. Section 165
