  1. “We should reserve a store house for ourselves . . .” he wrote in his essay On Solitariness, “altogether ours, and wholly free, wherein we may hoard up and establish our true liberty, and principal retreat and solitariness.”
    Hoarding was acceptable to him at a time when it was looked down upon. We can learn from him that financial independence is a worthy pursuit that we can seek without shame.
