If you are lonely when you are alone, you are in bad company.

Jean-Paul Sartre

What loneliness is more lonely than distrust?

T.S. Eliot

Loneliness the clearest of crystal insight into your own soul, its the fear of one's own self that haunts the lonely.

Keith Haynie

One ceases to be lonely only in recollection; perhaps that is why people read history.

John Andrew Rice

Doubt is a pain too lonely to know that faith is his twin brother.

Kahlil Gibran

Somehow, not only for Christmas, But all the long year through, The joy that you give to others, Is the joy that comes back to you. And the more you spend in blessing, The poor and lonely and sad, The more of your heart's possessing, Returns to you glad.

John Greenleaf Whittier

The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be.

Anne Frank

By Nebos lonely mountain, On this side Jordans wave, In a vale in the land of Moab, There lies a lonely grave.

Cecil Frances Humphreys Alexander

An overcrowded world is the ideal place in which to be lonely.

Brian Wilson Aldiss

My career is one of the few that started at the absolute top and then worked its way down. That was lonely.

Bjrn Johan Andrsen

Human nature is said by many to be good; if so, where have social evils come from? For human nature is the only moral nature in that corrupting thing called "society." Every example set before the child of to-day is the fruit of human nature. It has been planted on every possible field among the snows that never melt; in temperate regions, and under the line; in crowded cities, in lonely forests; in ancient seats of civilization, in new colonies; and in all these fields it has, without once failing, brought forth a crop of sins and troubles.

William Arthur

He suffers from one great literary defect, which is often found in lonely geniuses: he never knows when to stop. Lonely people are apt to fall in love with the sound of their own voice, as Narcissus fell in love with his reflection, not out of conceit but out of despair of finding another who will listen and respond.

Wystan Hugh Auden

At a time when it's possible for thirty people to stand on the top of Everest in one day, Antarctica still remains a remote, lonely and desolate continent. A place where it's possible to see the splendours and immensities of the natural world at its most dramatic and, what's more, witness them almost exactly as they were, long, long before human beings ever arrived on the surface of this planet. Long may it remain so.

Sir David Frederick Attenborough

A lonely day is God's way of saying that he wants to spend some quality time with you.

Criss Jami

Well you could have been lonely every night now, Could have cried a whole lot more, been a little bit blue Oh, you could have been lonely, for your one and only, You could have loved me as much as I love you.

Hoyt Wayne Axton

I sit beside my lonely fire And pray for wisdom yet: For calmness to remember Or courage to forget.

Charles Hamilton Aide

I'm very lonely now, Mary, For the poor make no new friends; But oh they love the better still The few our Father sends!

Helen Blackwood, Baroness Dufferin and Claneboye

Come Grief, and sing a solemn dirge Beneath this midnight shade; From central darkness now emerge, And tread the lonely glade.

Ann Eliza Bleecker

The highest activities are always essentially lonely and private, and these men had a robust sense of their independence and the ultimate self-sufficiency of the mind. In this they were just like Socrates. The only change they operated was to bring philosophy out of the closet into the open, instead of seeking protection behind a little wall like men in a storm. Of course, in so doing they made philosophy, on the one hand, more vulnerable to the public if the hopes of controlling the public are not fulfilled, and, on the other, put at risk that inner intransigence which is the necessary condition of the quest for truth. Not only the rewards but the new responsibilities might prove irresistible temptations to compromise.

Allan David Bloom

Here I was again tonight forcing laughter, faking smiles Same old tired, lonely place

Taylor Swift

And the blue gentian flower, that, in the breeze, Nods lonely, of her beauteous race the last.

William Cullen Bryant

A man of firm convictions does not ask, and does not receive, understanding from those with whom he comes into conflict. ... A mature man is his own judge. In the end, his only firm support is being faithful to his own convictions. The advice of others may be welcome and valuable, but it does not free him from responsibility. Therefore, he may become very lonely.

Dag Hammarskjld
