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

- Marvell, Andrew
A good conscience fears no witness, but a guilty conscience is solicitous even in solitude. If we do nothing but what is honest, let all the world know it. But if otherwise, what does it signify to have nobody else know it, so long as I know it myself? Miserable is he who slights that witness.

- Seneca
The worst solitude is to have no real friendships.

- Bacon, Francis
Great men are like eagles, and build their nest on some lofty solitude.

- Schopenhauer, Arthur
Solitude shows us what should be; society shows us what we are.

- Robert Cecil
Well has he lived who has lived well in obscurity.

- Ovid
Oh you who have been removed from God in his solitude by the abyss of time, how can you expect to reach him without dying?

- Hallaj
Solitude is as needed to the imagination as society is wholesome to the character.

- Lowell, James Russell
A man must keep a little back shop where he can be himself without reserve. In solitude alone can he know true freedom.

- Michel Eyquem deMontaigne
The great omission in American life is solitude. . . that zone of time and space, free from the outside pressures, which is the incinerator of the spirit.

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

- Miller, Henry
Who knows what true loneliness is -- not the conventional word, but the naked terror? To the lonely themselves it wears a mask. The most miserable outcast hugs some memory or some illusion. Now and then a fatal conjunction of events may lift the veil for an instant. For an instant only. No human being could bear a steady view of moral solitude without going mad.

- Conrad, Joseph
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
The best thinking has been done in solitude.

- Edison, Thomas A.
Violent passions are formed in solitude. In the busy world no object has time to make a deep impression.

- Home, Henry
Letter writing is the only device for combining solitude with good company.

- Byron, Lord
The most dangerous aspect of present-day life is the dissolution of the feeling of individual responsibility. Mass solitude has done away with any difference between the internal and the external, between the intellectual and the physical.

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

- Thoreau, Henry David
