(Not the foggiest idea who that is, I saw the quote in a Youtube video )

I have a few tabs open on my laptop. One of them being my emails that gets notifications from SF. As I was listening to this video one came through from the quote thread. Yours about solitude. This was the video

Pema does 100 days of solitude in an off grid cabin. Well, she said it's not totally off grid. No electronic devices though.

“Just as sick people need surgery and cautery to recover the health they have lost, so we need trials, and toils of repentance, and fear of death and punishment, so that we may regain our former health of soul and shake off the sickness which our folly has induced. The more the Physician of our souls bestows upon us voluntary and involuntary suffering, the more we should thank Him for His compassion and accept the suffering joyfully: For it is to help us that He increases our tribulation, both through the sufferings we willingly embrace in our repentance and through the trials and punishments not subject to our will. In this way, if we voluntarily accept affliction, we will be freed from our sickness and from the punishments to come, and perhaps even from present punishments as well.”
― St. Peter of Damascus
