There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
there is a rapture on the lonely shore,
there is society where none intrudes,
By the deep sea,and music in it's roar
I love not man the less,but nature more.
George Gordon Byron

Law of Compensation:
All infractions of love and equity in our social relations are speedily punished.They are punished by fear.Whilst I stand in simple relations to my fellow man,I have no displeasure in meeting him.We meet as water meets water,or as two currents of air mix,with perfect diffusion and interpentration of nature.But as soon as there is any departure from simplicity and attempt at halfness,or good for me that is not good for him,my neighbor feels the wrong:he shrinks from me as far as I have shrunk from him..
Ralph Waldo Emerson (essay Compensation)
