The Recluse.  We retire into seclusion, but not from personal misgivings, as if the political and social conditions of the day did not satisfy us; rather because by our retirement we try to save and collect forces which will someday be urgently needed by culture, the more this present is this present, and, as such, fulfils its task.  We form a capital and try to make it secure, but, as in times of real danger, our method is to bury our hoard.
