Reflexive Pronouns 的疑問

1)I go to school myself.

2)He did his homework by himself.

為什麼句1沒有用“by”,句2有呢?

究竟什麼時候用“by”?

Update:

照第一位回答者所說,逢用”by”字加self-pronoun 解 “獨自”,那我可以這樣寫嗎?

“I go to school by myself.”

    逢用”by”字加self-pronoun 解 “獨自”

    John sits by himself. (John 獨自坐下)

    Do you go to Hong Kong by yourself?

    Can your baby walk by itself? (自己獨自行, 不用他人協助)

    [without (by) = 加勢 emphatic only]

    I myself go. (I和 myself是同位字, myself為句主加勢 emphatic pronoun)

    I go myself. (Myself亦為 nominative case)

    Did you meet Miss Lee herself on the road yesterday? (加勢於Miss Lee, herself為objective case)

    Mr. Kwan was received by the president himself. (加勢於president字, 表示總統本人自己去不是派代表)

    Yes, you can say that. You go to school by yourself, without anybody's help.
