Loneliness quotes

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

All men are lonely. But sometimes it seems to me that we Americans are the loneliest of all. Our hunger for foreign places and new ways has been with us almost like a national disease. Our literature is stamped with a quality of longing and unrest, and our writers have been great wanderers.

- Mccullers, Carson

When people are lonely they stoop to any companionship.

- Wallace, Lew

Loneliness is never more cruel than when it is felt in close propinquity with someone who has ceased to communicate.

- Greer, Germaine

Loneliness and the feeling of being unwanted is the worst poverty of all.

- Mother Teresa

The surest cure for vanity is loneliness.

- Wolfe, Thomas

It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our home. Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start.

- Mother Teresa

There is no loneliness greater than the loneliness of a failure. The failure is a stranger in his own house.

- Hoffer, Eric

Sometimes the lies you tell are less frightening than the loneliness you might feel if you stopped telling them.

- Brock Clarke

To fall in love is easy, even to remain in it is not difficult; our human loneliness is cause enough. But it is a hard quest worth making to find a comrade through whose steady presence one becomes steadily the person one desires to be.

- Anna Louise Strong

The most terrible poverty is loneliness and the feeling of being unloved.

- Mother Teresa

What torments my soul is its loneliness. The more it expands among friends and the daily habits or pleasures, the more, it seems to me, it flees me and retires into its fortress. The poet who lives in solitude, but who produces much, is the one who enjoys those treasures we bear in our bosom, but which forsake us when we give ourselves to others. When one yields oneself completely to one's soul, it opens itself to one, and then it is that the capricious thing allows one the greatest of good fortunes... that of sympathizing with others, of studying itself, of painting itself constantly in its works.

- Delacroix, Eugene

One aged man -- one man -- can't fill a house.

- Frost, Robert

No matter how lonely you get or how many birth announcements you receive, the trick is not to get frightened. There's nothing wrong with being alone.

- Wendy Wasserstein
