A Place to Hide

Montaigne, Essais 3.3 (De Trois Commerces = Three Kinds of Association, tr. Donald M. Frame):
Sorry the man, to my mind, who has not in his own home a place to be all by himself, to pay his court privately to himself, to hide! .... I find it measurably more endurable to be always alone than never to be able to be alone.

Miserable à mon gré, qui n'a chez soy, où estre à soy : où se faire particulierement la cour : où se cacher....Et trouve aucunement plus supportable, d'estre tousjours seul, que ne le pouvoir jamais estre.
