loneliness

A Quote by Anne Frank on alone, afraid, fear, unhappiness, nature, spirituality, god, and loneliness

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 (1929 - 1945)

A Quote by Marilyn Monroe on lonely, alone, self, loneliness, and touch

It's often just enough to be with someone. I don't need to touch them. Not even talk. A feeling passes between you both. You're not alone.

A Quote by Henry Ward Beecher on greatness, strength, solitary, loneliness, and alone

Greatness lies, not in being strong, but in the right using of strength; and strength is not used rightly when it serves only to carry a man above his fellows for his own solitary glory. He is the greatest whose strength carries up the most hearts by the attraction of his own.

Henry Ward Beecher (1813 - 1887)

A Quote by Anne Lamott on writing, writers, alone, loneliness, isolation, connection, and life

Writing and reading decrease our sense of isolation. They deepen and widen and expand our sense of life; they feed the soul. When writers make us shake our heads with the exactness of their prose and their truths, and even make us laugh about ourselves or life, our buoyancy is restored. We are given a shot at dancing with, or at least clapping along with, the absurdity of life, instead of being squashed by it over and over again. It's like singing on a boat during a terrible storm at sea. You can't stop the raging storm, but singing can change the hearts and spirits of the people who are together on that ship.

A Quote by Oscar Fingall O'Flahertie Wills Wilde on love, imagination, wisdom, loneliness, alone, and life

Love is fed by the imagination, by which we become wiser than we know, better than we feel, nobler than we are: by which we can see Life as a whole: by which, and by which alone, we can understand others in their real as in their ideal relations.

Oscar Wilde (1854 - 1900)

A Quote by Søren Aabye Kierkegaard on life, living, loneliness, reality, and self

And this is the simple truth - that to live is to feel oneself lost. He who accepts it has already begun to find himself, to be on firm ground. Instinctively, as do the shipwrecked, he will look around for something to which to cling, and that tragic, ruthless glance, absolutely sincere, because it is a question of his salvation, will cause him to bring order into the chaos of his life. These are the only genuine ideas; the ideas of the shipwrecked. All the rest is rhetoric, posturing, farce.

A Quote by Terry Pratchett on self, self-knowledge, and loneliness

It's vital to remember who you really are. It's very important. It isn't a good idea to rely on other people to do it for you, you see. They always get it wrong.

Terry Pratchett (1948 -)
