Loneliness quotes
Loneliness
Americans become unhappy and vicious because their preoccupation with amassing possessions obliterates their loneliness. This is why production in America seems to be on such an endless upward spiral: every time we buy something we deepen our emotional deprivation and hence our need to buy something.

- Philip Saltier
To most people loneliness is a doom. Yet loneliness is the very thing which God has chosen to be one of the schools of training for His very own. It is the fire that sheds the dross and reveals the gold.

- Martin, Bernard M.
It is very lonely sometimes, trying to play God.

- Holmes, Oliver Wendell
Only in relationship can you know yourself, not in abstraction and certainly not in isolation. The movement of behavior is the sure guide to yourself. It's the mirror of your consciousness: this mirror will reveal its content, the images, the attachments, the fears, the loneliness, the joys and sorrow. Poverty lies in running away from this, either in its sublimations or its identities.

- Krishnamurti, Jiddu
Leadership is the other side of the coin of loneliness, and he who is a leader must always act alone. And acting alone, accept everything alone.

- Marcos, Ferdinand E.
Music was invented to confirm human loneliness.

- Durrell, Lawrence
It is strange to be known so universally and yet to be so lonely.

- Einstein, Albert
We are all sentenced to solitary confinement inside our own skins, for life.

- Williams, Tennessee
It is cruel, you know, that music should be so beautiful. It has the beauty of loneliness and of pain: of strength and freedom. The beauty of disappointment and never-satisfied love. The cruel beauty of nature, and everlasting beauty of monotony.

- Britten, Benjamin
An artist is always alone -- if he is an artist. No, what the artist needs is loneliness.

- Miller, Henry
Loneliness and the feeling of being unwanted is the most terrible poverty.

- Mother Teresa
The gift of loneliness is sometimes a radical vision of society or one's people that has not previously been taken into account.

- Walker, Alice
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
When Christ said: I was hungry and you fed me, he didn't mean only the hunger for bread and for food; he also meant the hunger to be loved. Jesus himself experienced this loneliness. He came amongst his own and his own received him not, and it hurt him then and it has kept on hurting him. The same hunger, the same loneliness, the same having no one to be accepted by and to be loved and wanted by. Every human being in that case resembles Christ in his loneliness; and that is the hardest part, that's real hunger.

- Mother Teresa
Moon! Moon! am prone before you. Pity me, and drench me in loneliness.

- Lowell, Amy
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
One's need for loneliness is not satisfied if one sits at a table alone. There must be empty chairs as well.

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

- Mother Teresa
Only in a house where one has learnt to be lonely does one have this solicitude for things. One's relation to them, the daily seeing or touching, begins to become love, and to lay one open to pain.

- Bowen, Elizabeth
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
