Quote about loneliness

hurtbs posted 8/24/2014 08:19 AM

Heard this the other day on the radio:

It's better to be lonely because you're alone than to be lonely because you're with the wrong person.

I also like this one: 
Loneliness is the human condition. Cultivate it. The way it tunnels into you allows your soul room to grow. Never expect to outgrow loneliness. Never hope to find people who will understand you, someone to fill that space. An intelligent, sensitive person is the exception, the very great exception. If you expect to find people who will understand you, you will grow murderous with disappointment. The best you'll ever do is to understand yourself, know what it is that you want, and not let the cattle stand in your way. ― Janet Fitch, White Oleander

I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. It's not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people that make you feel alone.

A quote I've always loved, from the late, great Robin Williams.

One of my favorites here on SI has been "Better to be single than wish you were."

Being alone is something I can trust. I already know how it feels.
