I love this quote. I find it to be so serene and noble. And for a while I used this as a mantra to mend a broken heart.

But if you do not find an intelligent companion, a wise and well-behaved person going the same way as yourself, then go on your way alone, like a king abandoning a conquered kingdom, or like a great elephant in the deep forest. – Buddha
