This quote by author Susan Cain is from her 2012 TED Talk on the vital role and positive qualities of introverts, or shyer individuals, in society. The quote means that the option to spend time by oneself is important, and some people (introverts) require it to thrive. Cain gives examples of Dr. Seuss and Steve Wozniak, introverts whose creative innovations required them to spend lots of time in solitude.
