Solitude

Solitude is as needed to the imagination as society is wholesome to the character.
- Lowell, James Russell
Solitude Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Solitude

1.
Life without a friend is death without a witness.
Proverb, Spanish

2.
The mark of solitude is silence, as speech is the mark of community. Silence and speech have the same inner correspondence and difference as do solitude and community. One does not exist without the other. Right speech comes out of silence, and right silence comes out of speech.
Bonhoeffer, Dietrich

3.
Solitude cherishes great virtues and destroys little ones.
Smith, Sydney

4.
Well has he lived who has lived well in obscurity.
Ovid

5.
Solitude is un-American.
Jong, Erica

6.
If we will be quiet and ready enough, we shall find compensation in every disappointment.
Thoreau, Henry David

7.
The higher we rise, the more isolated we become; all elevations are cold.
Boufflers

8.
Two Paradises t'were in one, to live in Paradise alone.
Marvell, Andrew

9.
In solitude, where we are least alone.
Byron, Lord

10.
The worst vice of the solitary is the worship of his food.
Connolly, Cyril

11.
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

12.
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

13.
History shows that the majority of people that have done anything great have passed their youth in seclusion.
Carlyle, Thomas

14.
The good and the wise lead quiet lives.
Euripides

15.
May God be gracious to each lonely one who walks in silence towards the setting sun.

16.
One hour of thoughtful solitude may nerve the heart for days of conflict -- girding up its armor to meet the most insidious foe.
Percival, Lord

17.
The more powerful and original a mind, the more it will incline towards the religion of solitude.
Huxley, Aldous

18.
By all means use sometimes to be alone. Salute thyself: see what thy soul doth wear. Dare to look in thy chest; for 'Tis thine own: And tumble up and down what thou findst there. Who cannot rest till he good fellows find, he breaks up house, turns out of doors his mind.
Herbert, George

19.
Solitude, though it may be silent as light, is like light, the mightiest of agencies; for solitude is essential to man. All men come into this world alone and leave it alone.
Quincey, Thomas De

20.
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

21.
Go away, I'm all right!
Wells, H.G.

22.
This great misfortune -- to be incapable of solitude.
Bruyere, Jean De La

23.
When from our better selves we have too long been parted by the hurrying world, and droop. Sick of its business, of its pleasures tired, how gracious, how benign in solitude.
Wordsworth, William

24.
Solitude is painful when one is young, but delightful when one is more mature.
Einstein, Albert

25.
Oh to have a lodge in some vast wilderness. Where rumors of oppression and deceit, of unsuccessful and successful wars may never reach me anymore.
Cowper, William

26.
Solitude can be used well by very few people. They who do must have a knowledge of the world to see the foolishness of it, and enough virtue to despise all the vanity.
Cowley, Abraham

27.
An artist is always alone -- if he is an artist. No, what the artist needs is loneliness.
Miller, Henry

28.
In solitude we are in the presence of mere matter (even the sky, the stars, the moon, trees in blossom), things of less value (perhaps) than a human spirit. Its value lies in the greater possibility of attention.
Weil, Simone

29.
The best thinking has been done in solitude.
Edison, Thomas A.

30.
A solitude is the audience-chamber of God.
Landor, Walter Savage

31.
I'm still the little southern girl from the wrong side of the tracks who really didn't feel like she belonged.
Dunaway, Faye

32.
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

33.
I find it wholesome to be alone the greater part of time. To be in company, even with the best, is soon wearisome and dissipating. I love to be alone, I never found the companionable as solitude.
Thoreau, Henry David

34.
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

35.
If you are afraid of being lonely, don't try to be right.
Renard, Jules

36.
Violent passions are formed in solitude. In the busy world no object has time to make a deep impression.
Home, Henry

37.
You have already failed if you need a lot of inspectors.

38.
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

39.
We never touch but at points.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

40.
Solitude is impractical and yet society is fatal.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

41.
The right to be alone -- the most comprehensive of rights, and the right most valued by civilized man.
Brandeis, Louis D.

42.
Solitude begets whimsies.
Montagu, Lady Mary Wortley

43.
In solitude the mind gains strength and learns to lean upon itself.
Sterne, Laurence

44.
If you are afraid of loneliness, don't marry.
Chekhov, Anton

45.
We are a most solitary people, and we live, repelled by one another, in the gray, outcast cities of Cain.
Dahlberg, Edward

46.
Ah, mon cher, for anyone who is alone, without God and without a master, the weight of days is dreadful.
Camus, Albert

47.
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

48.
I live in that solitude which is painful in youth, but delicious in the years of maturity.
Einstein, Albert

49.
I have never found a companion so companionable as solitude.
Thoreau, Henry David

50.
In the world a man lives in his own age; in solitude in all ages.
Mathews, William
