Loneliness quotes
Loneliness
Thirty -- the promise of a decade of loneliness, a thinning list of single men to know, a thinning brief-case of enthusiasm, thinning hair.

We enter the world alone, we leave the world alone.

- Froude, James A.
Our language has wisely sensed the two sides of being alone. It has created the word loneliness to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word solitude to express the glory of being alone.

- Tillich, Paul
Loneliness breaks the spirit.

- Proverb, Jewish
Leadership is the other side of the coin of loneliness, and he who is a leader must always act alone. And acting alone, accept everything alone.

- Marcos, Ferdinand E.
Strife is better than loneliness.

- Proverb, Irish
People are lonely because they build walls instead of bridges.

- Newton, Joseph Fort
Have you never been moved by poor men's fidelity, the image of you they form in their simple minds? Why should you always talk of their envy, without understanding that what they ask of you is not so much your worldly goods, as something very hard to define, which they themselves can put no name to; yet at times it consoles their loneliness; a dream of splendor, of magnificence, a tawdry dream, a poor man's dream --and yet God blesses it!

- Bernanos, Georges
There is none more lonely than the man who loves only himself.

- Esra, Abraham Ibn
Only in a house where one has learnt to be lonely does one have this solicitude for things. One's relation to them, the daily seeing or touching, begins to become love, and to lay one open to pain.

- Bowen, Elizabeth
If there is a look of human eyes that tells of perpetual loneliness, so there is also the familiar look that is the sign of perpetual crowds.

- Meynell, Alice
The end comes when we no longer talk with ourselves. It is the end of genuine thinking and the beginning of the final loneliness.

- Hoffer, Eric
You cannot be lonely if you like the person you're alone with.

- Dyer, Wayne
If you are lonely when you are alone, you are in bad company.

- Sartre, Jean-Paul
It's a terrible thing to be alone -- yes it is -- it is -- but don't lower your mask until you have another mask prepared beneath --as terrible as you like --but a mask.

- Mansfield, Katherine
Of my friends I am the only one left.

- Terence
Fatigue dulls the pain, but awakes enticing thoughts of death. So! that is the way in which you are tempted to overcome your loneliness -- by making the ultimate escape from life. -- No! It may be that death is to be your ultimate gift to life: it must not be an act of treachery against it.

- Hammarskjold, Dag
Loneliness is never more cruel than when it is felt in close propinquity with someone who has ceased to communicate.

- Greer, Germaine
One cat in a house is a sign of loneliness, two of barrenness, and three of sodomy.

- Dahlberg, Edward
The penalty of leadership is loneliness.

- Robinson, H. Wheeler
