alone

A Quote by Henry Brooks Adams on friendship, dialogue, universe, alone, and friend

Every one must bear his own universe, and most persons are moderately interested in learning how their neighbors have managed to carry theirs.

A Quote by May Sarton on ambience, order, beauty, alone, inadequate, meditation, and myself

The ambience here is order and beauty.  That is what frightens me when I am first alone again.  I feel inadequate.  I have made an open place, a place for meditation.  What if I cannot find myself inside it?

A Quote by May Sarton on anguish, violence, anger, alone, temperament, fear, silence, heaven, hell, routines, silent, and clamor

The anguish of my life here - its rages - is hardly mentioned...There is violence there and anger never resolved.  I live alone, perhaps for no good reason, for the reason that I am an impossible creature, set apart by a temperament I have never learned to use as it could be used, thrown off by a word,a glance, a rainy day, or one drink too many.  My need to be alone is balanced against my fear of what will happen when suddenly I enter the huge empty silence if I cannot find support there.  I go up to Heaven and down to Hell in an hour, and keep alive only by imposing upon myself inexorable routines...It may be outwardly silent here but in the back of my mind is a clamor of human voices, too many needs, hopes and fear.  I hardly ever sit still without being haunted by the "undone"...

A Quote by Mamkhai Norbu Rinpoche on bee, flowers, teachings, deer, quiet, alone, seclusion, and teachers

From all kinds of flowers,
Seek teachings everywhere,
Like a deer that finds
A quiet place to graze,
Seek Seclusion to digest
All you have gathered. . .

A Quote by Ayn Rand on love, miracle, torn, alone, and one

"We are one...alone...and only...and we love you who are one...alone...and only. We looked into each other's eyes and we knew the breath of a miracle had touched us, and fled, and left us groping vainly. And we felt torn, torn for some word we could not find."

Ayn Rand (1905 - 1982)

A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on voice, eagle, fly, grow, enlighten, move, alone, and independence

A voice cannot carry the tongue and the lips that gave it wings. Alone must it seek the ether.
And alone and without its nest shall the eagle fly across the sun.

Kahlil Gibran (1883 - 1931)
