Solitude quotes
Solitude
Two Paradises t'were in one, to live in Paradise alone.

- Marvell, Andrew
In the tumult of men and events, solitude was my temptation; now it is my friend. What other satisfaction can be sought once you have confronted History?

- Gaulle, Charles De
The sorrow for the dead is the only sorrow from which we refuse to be divorced. Every other wound we seek to heal -- every other affliction to forget: but this wound we consider it a duty to keep open -- this affliction we cherish and brood over in solitude.

- Irving, Washington
If you are afraid of being lonely, don't try to be right.

- Renard, Jules
If we will be quiet and ready enough, we shall find compensation in every disappointment.

- Thoreau, Henry David
Talents are best nurtured in solitude; but character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.

- Johan Wolfgang von Goethe
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
Shakespeare, Leonardo Da Vinci, Benjamin Franklin, and Lincoln never saw a movie, heard a radio, or looked at a TV They had loneliness and knew what to do with it. They were not afraid of being lonely because they knew that was when the creative mood in them would mark.

- Sa, Carl
Ah, mon cher, for anyone who is alone, without God and without a master, the weight of days is dreadful.

- Camus, Albert
Solitude shows us what should be; society shows us what we are.

- Robert Cecil
Solitude: sweet absence of faces.

- Milan Kundera
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
The more powerful and original a mind, the more it will incline towards the religion of solitude.

- Huxley, Aldous
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
But the truth was that he died from solitude, the enemy known but to few on this Earth, and whom only the simplest of us are fit to withstand. The brilliant Costaguanaro of the boulevards had died from solitude and want of faith in himself and others.

- Joseph Conrad
In solitude the mind gains strength and learns to lean upon itself.

- Sterne, Laurence
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
One can acquire everything in solitude, except character.

- Marie Stendhal
Life without a friend is death without a witness.

- Proverb, Spanish
Piety practiced in solitude, like the flower that blooms in the desert, may give its fragrance to the winds of heaven, and delight those unbodied spirits that survey the works of God and the actions of men; but it bestows no assistance upon earthly beings, and however free from taints of impurity, yet wants the sacred splendor of beneficence.

- Johnson, Samuel
