solitude

Solitude quotes
Solitude
The more powerful and original a mind, the more it will incline towards the religion of solitude.

- Huxley, Aldous
We never touch but at points.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
The price for independence is often isolation and solitude.

- Schmidt, Steve
We are a most solitary people, and we live, repelled by one another, in the gray, outcast cities of Cain.

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

- Paul Valery
I'm still the little southern girl from the wrong side of the tracks who really didn't feel like she belonged.

- Dunaway, Faye
You have already failed if you need a lot of inspectors.

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

- Sadegh Hedayat
It is easy in the world to live after the world's opinion. It is easy in solitude to live after our own. But the great man is he who, in the midst of the crowd, keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Ah, mon cher, for anyone who is alone, without God and without a master, the weight of days is dreadful.

- Camus, Albert
For I say unto you in all sadness of conviction that to think great thoughts you must be heroes as well as idealists. Only when you have worked alone -- when you have felt around you are a black gulf of solitude more isolating than that which surrounds the dying man, and in hope and despair have trusted to your own unshaken will -- then only can you gain the secret isolated joy of the thinker, who knows that a hundred years after he is dead and forgotten men who have never heard of him will be moving to the measure of his thought -- the subtle rapture of postponed power, which the world knows not because it has no external trappings, but which to his prophetic vision is more real than that which commands an army. And if this joy should not be yours, still it is only thus you can know that you have done what lay in you to do -- can say that you have lived, and be ready for the end.

- Holmes Jr., Oliver Wendell
The best thinking has been done in solitude.

- Edison, Thomas A.
There are persons who cannot make friends. Who are they? Those who cannot be friends. It is not the want of understanding or good nature, of entertaining or useful qualities, that you complain of: on the contrary, they have probably many points of attraction; but they have one that neutralizes all these --they care nothing about you, and are neither the better nor worse for what you think of them. They manifest no joy at your approach; and when you leave them, it is with a feeling that they can do just as well without you. This is not sullenness, nor indifference, nor absence of mind; but they are intent solely on their own thoughts, and you are merely one of the subjects they exercise them upon. They live in society as in a solitude.

- Hazlitt, William
The higher we rise, the more isolated we become; all elevations are cold.

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

- Percival
History shows that the majority of people that have done anything great have passed their youth in seclusion.

- Carlyle, Thomas
Perfectionism is the enemy of creation, as extreme self-solitude is the enemy of well-being.

- Updike, John
Piety practiced in solitude, like the flower that blooms in the desert, may give its fragrance to the winds of heaven, and delight those unbodied spirits that survey the works of God and the actions of men; but it bestows no assistance upon earthly beings, and however free from taints of impurity, yet wants the sacred splendor of beneficence.

- Johnson, Samuel
Solitude is painful when one is young, but delightful when one is more mature.

- Einstein, Albert
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
