Solitude quotes
Solitude
It is easy in the world to live after the world's opinions; it is easy in solitude to live after your own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Wit is a weapon. Jokes are a masculine way of inflicting superiority. But humor is the pursuit of a gentle grin, usually in solitude.

- Muir, Frank
Fortunately art is a community effort --a small but select community living in a spiritualized world endeavoring to interpret the wars and the solitudes of the flesh.

- Ginsberg, Allen
Solitude is dangerous to reason, without being favorable to virtue. Remember that the solitary mortal is certainly luxurious, probably superstitious, and possibly mad.

- Johnson, Samuel
Go away, I'm all right!

- Wells, H.G.
In solitude, where we are least alone.

- Byron, Lord
I live in that solitude which is painful in youth, but delicious in the years of maturity.

- Einstein, Albert
A good conscience fears no witness, but a guilty conscience is solicitous even in solitude. If we do nothing but what is honest, let all the world know it. But if otherwise, what does it signify to have nobody else know it, so long as I know it myself? Miserable is he who slights that witness.

- Seneca
A writer who writes, I am alone... can be considered rather comical. It is comical for a man to recognize his solitude by addressing a reader and by using methods that prevent the individual from being alone. The word alone is just as general as the word bread. To pronounce it is to summon to oneself the presence of everything the word excludes.

- Blanchot, Maurice
In solitude the mind gains strength and learns to lean upon itself.

- Sterne, Laurence
In solitude, be a multitude to thyself. Tibullus by all means use sometimes to be alone.

- Herbert, George
The power to bring me out of solitude - or to push me back into it - had never belonged to another person. It was mine and only mine.

- Martha Beck
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
There are days when solitude, for someone my age, is a heady wine that intoxicates you with freedom, others when it is a bitter tonic, and still others when it is a poison that makes you beat your head against the wall.

- Colette
With some people solitariness is an escape not from others but from themselves. For they see in the eyes of others only a reflection of themselves.

- Hoffer, Eric
The worst vice of the solitary is the worship of his food.

- Connolly, Cyril
In the desert a fountain is springing, In the wide waste there still is a tree, And a bird in the solitude singing, Which speaks to my spirit of thee.

- Lord Byron
There is convincing evidence that the search for solitude is not a luxury but a biological need. Just as humans posses a herding instinct that keeps us close to others most of the time, we also have a conflicting drive to seek out solitude. If the distance between ourselves and others becomes too great, we experience isolation and alienation, yet if the proximity to others becomes too close, we feel smothered and trapped.

- Kottler, Jeffrey
Educating a son I should allow him no fairy tales and only a very few novels. This is to prevent him from having 1. the sense of romantic solitude (if he is worth anything he will develop a proper and useful solitude) which identification with the hero gives. 2. cant ideas of right and wrong, absurd systems of honor and morality which never will he be able completely to get rid of, 3. the attainment of ideals, of a priori desires, of a priori emotions. He should amuse himself with fact only: he will then not learn that if the weak younger son do or do not the magical honorable thing he will win the princess with hair like flax.

- Trilling, Lionel
Two Paradises t'were in one, to live in Paradise alone.

- Marvell, Andrew
