US author May Sarton who was a friend of Janet Frame's, once said:

"Loneliness is the poverty of self; solitude is the richness of self."

Janet Frame also had much to say about solitude, for instance in a 1983 radio interview she said this:

"I think a writer needs to lead a solitary life. When I say that, you have to be in isolation to do your work. After you've done your work, well that's another matter!"
