Man was born to live with his fellow human beings. Separate him, isolate him, his character will go bad, a thousand ridiculous affects will invade his heart, extravagant thoughts will germinate in his brain, like thorns in an uncultivated land.

Denis Diderot (1713-1784) French editor, philosopher
La Religieuse [The Nun] [Suzanne Simon] (1796)
