Solitude quotes
Solitude
There are sores which slowly erode the mind in solitude like a kind of canker.

- Sadegh Hedayat
God created man and, finding him not sufficiently alone, gave him a companion to make him feel his solitude more keenly.

- Paul Valery
Reading well is one of the great pleasures that solitude can afford you.

- Harold Bloom
Education is a companion which no misfortune can depress, no crime can destroy, no enemy can alienate,no despotism can enslave. At home, a friend, abroad, an introduction, in solitude a solace and in society an ornament.It chastens vice, it guides virtue, it gives at once grace and government to genius. Without it, what is man? A splendid slave, a reasoning savage.

- Joseph Addison

Alone, even doing nothing, you do not waste your time. You do, almost always, in company. No encounter with yourself can be altogether sterile: Something necessarily emerges, even if only the hope of some day meeting yourself again.

- Cioran, E. M.

It is very easy in the world to live by the opinion of the world. It is very easy in solitude to be self-centered. But the finished man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Solitude shows us what should be; society shows us what we are.

- Robert Cecil

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
