Loneliness quotes
Loneliness
Language has created the word loneliness to express the pain of being alone, and the word solitude to express the glory of being alone.

- Tillich, Paul
We enter the world alone, we leave the world alone.

- Froude, James A.
People are lonely because they build walls instead of bridges.

- Newton, Joseph Fort
Americans become unhappy and vicious because their preoccupation with amassing possessions obliterates their loneliness. This is why production in America seems to be on such an endless upward spiral: every time we buy something we deepen our emotional deprivation and hence our need to buy something.

- Philip Saltier
At the innermost core of all loneliness is a deep and powerful yearning for union with one's lost self.

- Brendan Francis
Man's loneliness is but his fear of life.

- O'Neill, Eugene
A lonely man is a lonesome thing, a stone, a bone, a stick, a receptacle for Gilbey's gin, a stooped figure sitting at the edge of a hotel bed, heaving copious sighs like the autumn wind.

- Cheever, John
Inside myself is a place where I live all alone and that's where you renew your springs that never dry up.

- Pearl Buck
When people are lonely they stoop to any companionship.

- Wallace, Lew
Only in relationship can you know yourself, not in abstraction and certainly not in isolation. The movement of behavior is the sure guide to yourself. It's the mirror of your consciousness: this mirror will reveal its content, the images, the attachments, the fears, the loneliness, the joys and sorrow. Poverty lies in running away from this, either in its sublimations or its identities.

- Krishnamurti, Jiddu
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.
Every deed and every relationship is surrounded by an atmosphere of silence. Friendship needs no words -- it is solitude delivered from the anguish of loneliness.

- Hammarskjold, Dag
Every time I look at you I get a fierce desire to be lonesome.

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

- Dyer, Wayne
No one ever discovers the depths of his own loneliness.

- Bernanos, Georges
Who knows what true loneliness is -- not the conventional word, but the naked terror? To the lonely themselves it wears a mask. The most miserable outcast hugs some memory or some illusion. Now and then a fatal conjunction of events may lift the veil for an instant. For an instant only. No human being could bear a steady view of moral solitude without going mad.

- Conrad, Joseph
Writing, at its best, is a lonely life. Organizations for writers palliate the writer's loneliness, but I doubt if they improve his writing. He grows in public stature as he sheds his loneliness and often his work deteriorates. For he does his work alone and if he is a good enough writer he must face eternity, or the lack of it, each day.

- Hemingway, Ernest
A man is never completely alone in this world. At the worst, he has the company of a boy, a youth, and by and by a grown man --the one he used to be.

- Pavese, Cesare
We are never the same with others as when we are alone. We are different, even when we are in the dark with them.

- Maeterlinck, Maurice
What makes loneliness an anguish is not that I have no one to share my burden, but this: I have only my own burden to bear.

- Hammarskjold, Dag
