Adelheid Manefeldt
The endless ocean was his sole companion , and on some deeply sentimental level, it seemed sufficient. Almost apt. He aligned himself with Thoreau and Tolstoy, he felt like their peers. The kinship with nature devoted humans to a mythical state, a heightened persona beyond the reach of mere mortals. At least that was what he told himself on the lonely nights when insomnia played on his fears and the howling wind pierced through his soul.
Adelheid Manefeldt
It had started to drizzle. The lamp poles cast a kaleidoscope of light dancing across the puddles in the road. The rain made Sam feel even more lost now, as if these shadowy events were invisible to the world. As if the night was cloaked in anonymity. This wasn't a peaceful rain - it was a sad one. A drizzle, which wept for the inevitable. Sam knew even if she got Alison out of this alive, the cuts on their lives had already been made, pooling the blood of consequence beneath their feet as the night dragged on. Whichever way this went, they'd have scars from this night. Scars and scabs and things which could not be spoken. And that made her feel utterly hopeless.
Adelheid Manefeldt
The secret tugs at my sleeve.A child looking for attention.It is not a big secret.But it is not the only one either.Strength in numbers they say.For they are many.Many little things that

Anna Kavan
The years passed like the steps of a staircase leading lower and lower. I did not walk any more in the sun or hear the songs of larks like crystal fountains playing against the sky. No hand enfolded mine in the warm clasp of love. My thoughts were again solitary, disintegrate, disharmonious
Anne Carson

Anthony Liccione
I can have patience for anything, but it's waiting for love, that kills me a little each day.
Anthony Liccione
We hide our demons so good, that the angels we show, bare the shame on their faces.
Anthony Trollope
The more she was absolutely in need of external friendship, the more disposed was she to reject it, and to declare to herself that she was prepared to stand alone in the world.

Arthur Miller
I don't know what the hell I'm workin' for. Sometimes I sit in my apartment
Arya vidhan
loneliness gives you opportunity to look the beauty of out of window
Ashly Lorenzana
People accuse me of falling in love easily. It just means that I'm able to see the beauty in most of the people who cross paths with me and I appreciate it for what it is and also for what it isn't. Love is imperfect. Falling for someone's flaws is just as necessary as falling for their strengths. And people like myself, who fall into love easily, are sometimes the loneliest souls around at the end of the day.
Asper Blurry
Maybe people like us can't be happy. Maybe we're too damaged and the only thing we can do is to learn how to hate ourselves a little less.

Being loved is the only thing that is admirable by any stretch of the imagination.
Ayushee Ghoshal, 4 AM Conversations with the Ghosts of Old Lovers
You make me feel like a firefly. Trapped in a belljar; starved for love.
B.A. Paris
I look around at everybody laughing and joking together and struggle to understand my life has become a living hell that nobody present could even begin to imagine
Banana Yoshimoto
When was it I realized that, on this truly dark and solitary path we all walk, the only way we can light is our own? Although I was raised with love, I was always lonely.Someday, without fail, everyone will disappear, scattered into the blackness of time.
Bangambiki Habyarimana
People would rather live in a community with unreasonable claims, than face loneliness with their truth
bell hooks
But many of us seek community solely to escape the fear of being alone. Knowing how to be solitary is central to the art of loving. When we can be alone, we can be with others without using them as a means of escape.
Bertrand Russell
Love is something far more than desire for sexual intercourse; it is the principal means of escape from the loneliness which afflicts most men and women throughout the greater part of their lives. There is a deep-seated fear, in most people, of the cold world and the possible cruelty of the herd; there is a longing for affection, which is often concealed by roughness, boorishness or a bullying manner in men, and by nagging and scolding in women. Passionate mutual love while it lasts puts an end to this feeling; it breaks down the hard walls of the ego, producing a new being composed of two in one.
Betty Smith
She had become accustomed to being lonely. She was used to walking alone and to being considered 'different.' She did not suffer too much.
Björk
I never really understood the word 'loneliness'. As far as I was concerned, I was in an orgy with the sky and the ocean, and with nature.
Bruce Machart
I don't reckon misery loves any damn thing at all.
C. JoyBell C.
I am never alone wherever I am. The air itself supplies me with a century of love. When I breathe in, I am breathing in the laughter, tears, victories, passions, thoughts, memories, existence, joys, moments, and the hues of the sunlight on many tones of skin; I am breathing in the same air that was exhaled by many before me. The air that bore them life. And so how can I ever say that I am alone?
C.S. Lewis
No one ever told me that grief felt so like fear. I am not afraid, but the sensation is like being afraid. The same fluttering in the stomach, the same restlessness, the yawning. I keep on swallowing.At other times it feels like being mildly drunk, or concussed. There is a sort of invisible blanket between the world and me. I find it hard to take in what anyone says. Or perhaps, hard to want to take it in. It is so uninteresting. Yet I want the others to be about me. I dread the moments when the house is empty. If only they would talk to one another and not to me.
Carl Sagan
In all our searching, the only thing we've found that makes the emptiness bearable is each other.
Carson McCullers
In his face there came to be a brooding peace that is seen most often in the faces of the very sorrowful or the very wise. But still he wandered through the streets of the town, always silent and alone.
Cassandra Clare
She was completely alone in the world. There was no one at all for her. No one in the world who cared whether she lived or died. Sometimes the horror of that thought threatened to overwhelm her and plunge her down into a bottomless darkness from which there would be no return. If no one in the entire world cared about you, did you really exist at all?
Charles Bukowski
I didn't like anything. Maybe I was afraid. That was it - I was afraid. I wanted to sit alone in a room with the shades down. I feasted upon that. I was a crank. I was a lunatic.
Charles Bukowski
she slammed the door andwas gone.I looked at the closed doorand at the doorknoband strangelyI didn't feelalone.
Charles de Lint
As the new work fills my notebooks, I've come to realize that the characters in my stories were so real because I really did want to get close to people, I really did want to know them. It was just easier to do it on paper, one step removed.
Charles M. Schulz
Are you upset little friend? Have you been lying awake worrying? Well, don't worry...I'm here. The flood waters will recede, the famine will end, the sun will shine tomorrow, and I will always be here to take care of you.
Charles Yu
I hope you read this, whoever you are, and imagine that there is a hypothetical person out there who needs your love, has been waiting silently, patiently for it all his life, is flawed and downright ugly at times and yet would have just eaten up any tiny bit of affection you had been willing to give, had you ever stopped your own happy life to notice. And then imagine that this hypothetical person is real, because he probably is.... Wish I'd met you. Wish I wasn't your hypothetical. But you're reading this, which means a few minutes ago, I went into that bathroom and pulled the trigger. You probably heard it. Sorry. You're welcome. Thank you. And please. Please, please, please, please, please, please, please.
Charlotte Brontë
Even for me life had its gleams of sunshine.
Charlotte Brontë
The trouble is not that I am single and likely to stay single, but that I am lonely and likely to stay lonely.
Charlotte Brontë
It is a very strange sensation to inexperience youth to feel itself quite alone the world, cut adrift from every connection, uncertain whether the port to which it is bound can be reached, and prevented by many impediments from returning to that it has quitted. The charm of adventure sweetens that sensation, the glow of pride warms it; but then the throb of fear disturbs it; and fear with me became predominant when half an hour elapsed, and still I was alone.
Charlotte Eriksson
Great growth comes from loneliness. You have time to develop, dwell in your own mind and go a bit mad. All great people are a bit mad. That's good to remember. Don't escape it. Great growth comes from time spent in foreign lands, watching foreign people with foreign cultures. It makes you forget about your own land and race and town for a while. Great growth also comes from rooting yourself into one place from time to time. Unpack your bags, get a nice bed, a book shelf, some friends. Learn to show up, keep in touch, stick around. Growth comes in all sort of forms and shapes, everywhere at all times, and it's yours to take and consume. Do what ought to be done. Here and now, to get you somewhere

Charlotte Eriksson
I'm still lonely and it's a glorification of something I'm not finished with. I don't want to be distracted from my work by other people, but the absence of it all distracts me from my work and that's why I run towards the city, to get a little glimpse of it.
Charlotte Leonetti
Pilar, if anyone, should have understood how awful it was to be surrounded by people who had their own version of the truth. People who wouldn't listen to you long enough to know you at a
Chinonye J. Chidolue
Her eyes bled from venomous anger...Her flower had been gruesomely deflowered...Her life had slowly turned into a blunder...There was no more thinking further....She would rather become a Foetus murderer Than end up a hopeless mother....Of course, she found peace in the formerUntil later years of emotional traumaOh, the foetus hunt was forever!The only thing you should abort is the thought of aborting your baby. Stop the hate and violence against innocent children.
Chris Dee
People who live in the night are acquainted with all kinds of quiet. There's quiet enough to hear the distant traffic. Quiet enough to hear your breathing. Quiet enough to hear a lover's heartbeat. There's please-god-don't-let-me-die quiet, and can't-remember-her-name quiet. Is-he-lying quiet and can't-make-rent quiet. There's the quiet that inspires poets, and quiet that torments the lonely.
Christiane Northrup
We are all hungry for genuine connection and caring, and we will not get this unless we find our Soul's tribe. If we don't find this, we'll kill ourselves, either by finding an addiction to mask the pain or by ignoring what we need to stay healthy.
Christopher Buehlman
There comes a time when loneliness is stronger than fear.
Compton Gage
When was it that they who dwell upon the earth have not sinned in thy sight? or what people have so kept thy commandments? Thou shall find that you all by name had kept thy precepts; but not the heathen.
Compton Gage
Like as a young child may not bring forth the things that belong to the aged, even so have I disposed the world which I created.
Compton Gage
I will liken my judgment unto a ring: like as there is no slackness of the last, even so there is no swiftness of the first.
Compton Gage
As thou hast said unto thy servant, that thou, which gives life to all, hast given life at once to the creature that thou hast created, and the creature bare it: even so it might now also bear them that now be present at once.
Compton Gage
One land also shall ask another, and say, 'Is righteousness that makes a man righteous gone through thee?' And it shall say, 'No.
Compton Gage
How, and when shall these things come to pass? wherefore are our years few and evil?
Compton Gage
To shew thee such tokens I have leave; and if thou wilt pray again, and weep as now, and fast even days, thou shall hear yet greater things.
Compton Gage
Nevertheless now have I asked thee but only of the fire and wind, and of the day where-through thou hast passed, and of things from which thou canst not be separated, and yet canst thou give me no answer of them.
Compton Gage
As for the tokens whereof thou ask me, I may tell thee of them in part: but as touching thy life, I am not sent to shew thee.
Compton Gage
Truly the light is sweet, and a pleasant thing it is for the eyes to behold the sun: But if a man live many years, and rejoice in them all; yet let him remember the days of darkness; for they shall be many. And all that cometh is vanity.
Compton Gage
What betrayed me? Was it my heart? Or my Soul?
Compton Gage
Like as thou canst do none of these things that I have spoken of, even so canst thou not find out my judgment, or in the end the love that I have promised unto my people.
Compton Gage
In the grave the chambers of souls are like the womb of a woman: For like as a woman that travails make haste to escape the necessity of the travail: even so do these places haste to deliver those things that are committed unto them.
Compton Gage
As concerning the things whereof thou asked me, I will tell thee; for the evil is sown, but the destruction thereof is not yet come.
Compton Gage
Thou hast given a right judgment, but why judge thou not thyself also?
Compton Gage
He shall rule, whom they look not for that dwell upon the earth, and the fowls shall take their flight away together:
Compton Gage
Thy heart had gone too far in this world, and think thou to comprehend the way of the most High?
Compton Gage
From the beginning, look, what thou desires to see, it shall be shew thee.
Compton Gage
Number me the things that are not yet come- gather me together the dross that are scattered abroad- make me the flowers green again that are withered- Open me the places that are closed, and bring me forth the winds that in them are shut up- shew me the image of a voice: and then I will declare to thee the thing that thou labor to know.
Compton Gage
Ask the womb of a woman, and say unto her, If thou bring forth children, why dost thou it not together, but one after another? pray her therefore to bring forth ten children at once.
Compton Gage
Weigh thou therefore their wickedness now in the balance, and theirs also that dwell the world; and so shall thy name no where be found anymore.
Compton Gage
At the same time shall men hope, but nothing obtain: they shall labor, but their ways shall not prosper.
Compton Gage
Do not thou hasten above the most Highest: for thy haste is in vain to be above him, for thou hast much exceeded.
Compton Gage
Why the law of our forefathers are brought to nought, and the written covenants come to none effect-
Compton Gage
Thine own things, and such as are grown up with thee, canst thou not know; How should thy vessel then be able to comprehend the way of the Highest, and, the world being now outwardly corrupted to understand the corruption that is evident in my sight?
Compton Gage
Iniquity shall be increased above that which now thou see, or that thou hast heard long ago.
Compton Gage
These be they that have put off the mortal clothing, and put on the immortal, and have confessed the name of God: now are they crowned, and receive palms.
Compton Gage
How my adventures become your sins?
Compton Gage
Behold, O Lord, yet art thou nigh unto them that be reserved till the end: and what shall they do that have been before me, or we that be now, or they that shall come after us?
Compton Gage
What will he then do unto his name whereby we are called? ...of these things have I asked.
Compton Gage
If therefore that which is sown be not turned upside down, and if the place where the evil is sown passes not away, then cannot it come that is sown with good?
Compton Gage
For like as the ground is given unto the wood, and the sea to his floods: even so they that dwell upon the earth may understand nothing but that which is upon the earth: and he that dwell above the heavens may only understand the things that are above the height of the heavens.
Compton Gage
The Sodomy sea shall cast out fish, and make a noise in the night, which many have not known: but they shall all hear the voice thereof.
Compton Gage
Go thy way, weigh me the weight of the fire, or measure me the blast of the wind, or call me again the day that is past.
Compton Gage
If I have found favor in thy sight, and if it be possible, and if I be meet therefore, shew me then whether there be more to come than is past, or more past than is to come.
Compton Gage
Thou art sore troubled in mind for the people in the world's sake: loves thou that people better than he that made them?
Compton Gage
Even so have I given the womb of the earth to those that be sown in it in their times.
Compton Gage
The greatest futility! says the congregator, The greatest futility! Everything is futile! What does a person gain from all his hard work- At which he toils under the sun? A generation goes and another cometh forth, but the earth remains the same.
Compton Gage
After seven days of fasten so it was, that the thoughts of my heart were very grievous unto me- and my soul recovered the spirit of understanding.
Compton Gage
Did not the souls also of the righteous ask question of these things in their chambers, saying, How long shall I hope on this fashion? when cometh the fruit of the floor of our reward?
Compton Gage
We pass away out of the world as grasshoppers, and our life is astonishment and fear, and we are not worthy to obtain mercy.
Compton Gage
It were better that we were not at all, than that we should live still in wickedness, and to suffer, and not to know wherefore.
Compton Gage
The land, that thou see now to have root, shall thou see wasted suddenly.
Compton Gage
Go thy way, and tell my people, the people of thy Lord God what manner of things, and how great wonders of the Lord thy God, thou hast seen.
Compton Gage
They that be born in the strength of youth are of one fashion, and they that are born in the time of age, when the womb fail, are otherwise.
Compton Gage
Could thou not make those that have been made, and be now, and that are for to come, at once; that thou might shew thy judgement the sooner?
Compton Gage
The more thou search, the more thou shall marvel; for the world hast fast to pass away-
Compton Gage
The grain of evil seed had been sown in the heart of Adam from the beginning, and how much ungodliness had it brought up unto this time? and how much shall it yet bring forth until the time of threshing come?
Compton Gage
I beseech thee, O Lord, let me have understanding: For it was not my mind to be curious of the high things, but of such as pass by us daily.
Compton Gage
There shall be confusion also in many places, and the fire shall be oft sent out again, and the wild beasts shall change their places, and menstruate women shall bring forth monsters:
Compton Gage
Hear me, and I will instruct thee; hearken to the thing that I say, and I shall tell thee more.
Compton Gage
What man is able to do that, that thou should ask such things of me?
Compton Gage
Stand up upon the right side, and I shall expound the similitude unto thee.
Compton Gage
She cannot: but must do it by distance of time.
Compton Gage
As thou know not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou know not the works of what makes all.
Compton Gage
O Lord that bear rule, who may know these things, but he that had not his dwelling with men?
Compton Gage
O Lord that bear rule, even we all are full of impiety. And for our sakes peradventure it is that the floors of the righteous are not filled, because of the sins of them that dwell upon the earth.
Compton Gage
The more thou search, the more thou shall marvel.
Compton Gage
I went into a forest into a plain, and the trees took counsel- And said, Come, let us go and make war against the sea that it may depart away before us, and that we may make us more woods. The floods of the sea also in like manner took counsel, and said, Come, let us go up and subdue the woods of the plain, that there also we may make us another country. The thought of the wood was in vain, for the fire came and consumed it. The thought of the floods of the sea came likewise to nought, for the sand stood up and stopped them. If thou wart judge now betwixt these two, whom would thou begin to justify? or whom would thou condemn?
Compton Gage
If the most High grant thee to live, thou shall see after the third trumpet that the sun shall suddenly shine again in the night, and the moon thrice in the day:
Compton Gage
And yet their reward appear not, and their labor had no fruit: for I have gone here and there through the heathen, and I see that they flow in wealth, and think not upon thy commandments.
Compton Gage
Seeing thou hast now given me the way, I will proceed to speak before thee: for our mother, of whom thou hast told me that she is young, draw now nigh unto age.
Compton Gage
The creature may not haste above the maker; neither may the world hold them at once that shall be created therein.
Compton Gage
Ponder now by thyself, how great fruit of wickedness the grain of evil seed had brought forth. And when the ears shall be cut down, which are without number, how great a floor shall they fill?
Compton Gage
Wherefore the present age is given up as a reproach to the heathen, and for what cause the people whom thou hast loved is given over unto ungodly nations?!
Compton Gage
Salt waters shall be found in the sweet, and all friends shall destroy one another; then shall wit hide itself, and understanding withdraw itself into his secret chamber-
Compton Gage
An extreme fearfulness moves through all your body, and your mind is troubled more.
Compton Gage
If I should ask thee how great dwellings are in the midst of the sea, or how many springs are in the beginning of the deep, or how many springs are above the firmament, or which are the outgoings of paradise: Peradventure thou would say unto me, 'I never went down into the deep, nor as yet into hell, neither did I ever climb up into heaven.
Compton Gage
Consider with thyself; as the rain is more than the drops, and as the fire is greater than the smoke; but the drops and the smoke remain behind: so the quantity which is past did more exceed.

Nu pot iubi plânsul sau râsul unui om alături de care n-am trăit măcar o singură întâmplare cu sens.
D.H. Lawrence
It's no good trying to get rid of your own aloneness. You've got to stick to it all your life. Only at times, at times, the gap will be filled in. At times! But you have to wait for the times. Accept your own aloneness and stick to it, all your life. And then accept the times when the gap is filled in, when they come. But they've got to come. You can't force them.
Dag Hammarskjold
Friendship needs no words - it is solitude delivered from the anguish of loneliness.

I don't know what's worse: to not know what you are and be happy, or to become what you've always wanted to be, and feel alone.
David Foster Wallace
Lonely people tend, rather, to be lonely because they decline to bear the psychic costs of being around other humans. They are allergic to people. People affect them too strongly.
Dean Koontz
Given enough time, you could convince yourself that loneliness was something better, that it was solitude, the ideal condition for reflection, even a kind of freedom.Once you were thus convinced, you were foolish to open the door and let anyone in, not all the way in. You risked the hard-won equilibrium, that tranquility that you called peace
Deb Caletti

Do you think you can cause something to happen just from wanting it so much?' she asked. 'I don't get what you mean. Does this have to do with your dad?' asked Frannie. 'Not really. I'm talking about loneliness.' Frannie turned around and considered her answer. For awhile she seemed to be in a wilderness of her own. 'Do you mean that you imagined that Issy was your friend?' 'Yes, so completely that it was real.' 'Oh, that can happen. I believe that totally. Loneliness is powerful.
Denice Envall
To me, you were more than just a person. You were a place where I finally felt at home.
Diana Joseph
...maybe she's a slut because she's lonely, she's sad, she's hoping someone or something will make the lonely and sad go away.It won't, of course. It never does. But nonetheless, there's not a girl who's more hopeful than a slut, more optimistic. She may give in but she doesn't give up. She keeps looking, she keeps hoping, she's always waiting for that someone who will say it: I love you, too.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Many people seek fellowship because they are afraid to be alone...let him who cannot be alone beware of community. He will do harm to himself and to the community. Alone you stood before God when he called you; alone you had to answer that call; alone you had to struggle and pray; and alone you will die and give an account to God. You cannot escape yourself, for God has singled you out.
Dorothy Day
We have all known the long loneliness and we have learned that the only solution is love and that love comes with community.
