Quotes and Sayings about Solitude & Loneliness

Loneliness - a painful echo that resonates in silence. In moments of solitude, we are embraced by emptiness and seek for connection. Yet, in loneliness, we also find space for self-reflection and growth. It teaches us to get to know ourselves better and discover our strength. May loneliness remind us that we are never truly alone, for in our hearts and memories, those who once accompanied us continue to live.

Real loneliness is not necessarily limited to when you are alone.

We choose life and for a moment we feel just a little bit less alone.

Forty years ago, the Beatles asked the world a simple question: they wanted to know where all the lonely people came from. My latest theory is that a great many of the lonely people come from hospitals. More precisely, the surgical wing of hospitals. As surgeons, we ignore our own needs so we can meet our patients' needs. We ignore our friends and families so we can save other people's friends and families. Which means that, at the end of the day, all we really have is ourselves. And nothing in this world can make you feel more alone than that.

What is it that we call loneliness. It can't simply be the absence of others, you can be alone and not lonely, and you can be among people and yet be lonely. So what is it? ... it isn't only that others are there, that they fill up the space next to us. But even when they celebrate us or give advice in a friendly conversation, clever, sensitive advice: even then we can be lonely. So loneliness is not something simply connected with the presence of others or with what they do. Then what? What on earth?
