"No one would choose a friendless existence on condition of having all the other things in the world." Aristotle
"There is no greater sorrow than to recall in misery the time when we were happy." Dante
"The end comes when we no longer talk with ourselves. It is the end of genuine thinking and the beginning of the final loneliness.

It is as if we noted the world and think about it only when we have to report it to ourselves. " Eric Hoffer

"Who knows what true loneliness is - not the conventional word but the naked terror? To the lonely themselves it wears a mask. The most miserable outcast hugs some memory or some illusion." Joseph Conrad
"Ships that pass in the night, and speak each other in passing, Only a signal shown, and a distant voice in the darkness; So on the ocean of life, we pass and speak one another, Only a look and a voice, then darkness again and a silence. " Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
"The person who tries to live alone will not succeed as a human being. His heart withers if it does not answer another heart. His mind shrinks away if he hears only the echoes of his own thoughts and finds no other inspiration." Pearl S. Buck
"Little do men perceive what solitude is, and how far it extendeth. For a crowd is not company, and faces are but a gallery of pictures, and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love." Francis Bacon
"If I'm such a legend, then why am I so lonely? Let me tell you, legends are all very well if you've got somebody around who loves you." Judy Garland
