Lonely quotes by Gordon Lightfoot
#1. You will go with me everywhere. When I'm dreaming, you still share my lonely nights. #Quote by Gordon Lightfoot
Lonely quotes by Marina & The Diamonds
#2. Homewrecker"

Every boyfriend is the one
Until otherwise proven
The good are never easy
The easy never good
And love it never happens like you think it really should

Deception and perfection are wonderful traits
One will breed love
The other hate
You'll find me in the lonely hearts
Under 'I'm after a brand new start'

And I don't belong to anyone

They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker
They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker

Girls and their curls and their gourmet vomit
Boys and their toys and their six inch rockets
We're all very lovely 'til we get to know each other
As we stop becoming friends and we start becoming lovers

And I don't belong to anyone

They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker (I'm only happy when I'm on the run)
They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker (I broke a million hearts just for fun)
They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker (I'm only happy when I'm on the run)
They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker (I broke a million hearts just for fun)

I'm only happy when I'm on the run
I break a million hearts just for fun
I don't belong to anyone

I guess you could say that my life's a mess
But I'm still looking pretty in this dress
I'm the image of deception

When everything is life and death
You may feel like there's nothing left
Instead of love #Quote by Marina & The Diamonds
Lonely quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#3. The farther one gets into the wilderness, the greater is the attraction of its lonely freedom. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Lonely quotes by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
#4. Forth from his dark and lonely hiding-place, (Portentous sight!) the owlet Atheism, sailing on obscene wings athwart the noon, drops his blue-fringed lids, and holds them close, and hooting at the glorious sun in Heaven, cries out, 'Where is it?' #Quote by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Lonely quotes by Alexander McCall Smith
#5. Dear friends, he began, there is no timetable for happiness; it moves, I think, according to rules of its own. When I was a boy I thought I'd be happy tomorrow, as a young man I thought it would be next week; last month I thought it would be never. Today, I know it is now. Each of us, I suppose has at least one person who thinks that our manifest faults are worth ignoring; I have found mine, and am content. When we are far from home we think of home; I, who am happy today, think of those in Scotland for whom such happiness might seem elusive; may such powers as listen to what is said by people like me, in olive groves like this, grant to those who want a friendship a friend, attend to the needs of those who have little, hold the hand of those who are lonely, allow Scotland, our place, our country, to sing in the language of her choosing that song she has always wanted to sing, which is of brotherhood, which is of love. #Quote by Alexander McCall Smith
Lonely quotes by Lady Augusta Gregory
#6. And my desire,' he said, 'is a desire that is as long as a year; but it is love given to an echo, the spending of grief on a wave, a lonely fight with a shadow, that is what my love and my desire have been to me. #Quote by Lady Augusta Gregory
Lonely quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#7. I don't know,' said Frodo. 'It came to me then, as if I was making it up; but I may have heard it long ago. Certainly it reminds me very much of Bilbo in the last years, before he went away. He used often to say there was only one Road; that it was like a great river: its springs were at every doorstep, and every path was its tributary. "It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out of your door," he used to say. "You step into the Road, and if you don't keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to. Do you realize that this is the very path that goes through Mirkwood, and that if you let it, it might take you to the Lonely Mountain or even further and to worse places?" He used to say that on the path outside the front door at Bag End, especially after he had been out for a long walk. #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Lonely quotes by O.J. Simpson
#8. Life was good to me. I had a great wife, good kids, money, my own health
and I'm lonely and bored. #Quote by O.J. Simpson
Lonely quotes by Mitch Albom
#9. I was so lonely." And Father Time said, "You were never alone. #Quote by Mitch Albom
Lonely quotes by Helen Simonson
#10. He was struck by the thought that he was often lonely, even in the midst of many friends. #Quote by Helen Simonson
Lonely quotes by Andre Kostelanetz
#11. We listen too much to the telephone and too little to nature. The wind is one of my sounds. A lonely sound, perhaps, but soothing. #Quote by Andre Kostelanetz
Lonely quotes by Bill Hader
#12. I got invited to the Playboy Mansion with the Lonely Island guys after their first season on 'SNL,' and I sat in the corner drinking coffee and talking to Akiva Schaffer about what aspect ratio he was going to shoot 'Hot Rod' in. Like, that's what we talk about. #Quote by Bill Hader
Lonely quotes by Jacqueline E. Smith
#13. They'd never scared him, really. When he was younger, he hadn't known that there was anything different about them. By the time he was old enough to figure out that no one else could see them, he was also old enough to realize that being dead didn't turn people into monsters. It just meant that most of them were lonely. #Quote by Jacqueline E. Smith
Lonely quotes by Jennifer Arnold
#14. Hunger, safety, & social attachment seem to be more important than play. If an animal is hungry, stressed or lonely, he is unlikely to play. #Quote by Jennifer Arnold
Lonely quotes by Daul Kim
#15. I'm lonely. What kind of loneliness? Every kind. I feel disconnected. Abandoned. As always. Repetition. So what, my love? So what? At first, I just wanted to run away. Now I have no where else to run to, nothing to run from. I don't belong anywhere, I don't want to go anywhere, I just want to be happy. #Quote by Daul Kim
Lonely quotes by Criss Jami
#16. The writer's curse is that even in solitude, no matter its duration, he never grows lonely or bored. #Quote by Criss Jami
Lonely quotes by Louise Suzanne Boyd
#17. The road of grief is often long and lonely and many stones need to be moved out of the way, but it is not without its lighter moments. #Quote by Louise Suzanne Boyd
Lonely quotes by Don Kardong
#18. In those long, lonely miles you put in during the off-season, and in those knife-in-the-gut track repetitions and hill repeats that buckle your knees - at that moment in almost every race when you ask yourself how much you're willing to hurt to catch one more runner - you can draw strength and inspiration from your running mates. #Quote by Don Kardong
Lonely quotes by Leonard Ravenhill
#19. If you're going to be a true Christian, I'll tell you one thing amongst others: it'll be a lonely life. It's a narrow way and it becomes narrower and narrower and narrower. #Quote by Leonard Ravenhill
Lonely quotes by Virginia Woolf
#20. I to whom there is not beauty enough in moon or tree; to whom the touch of one person with another is all, yet who cannot grasp even that, who am so imperfect, so weak, so unspeakably lonely. There I sat. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Lonely quotes by Frederic Farrar
#21. No true work since the world began was ever wasted; no true life since the world began has ever failed. Oh, understand those two perverted word, failure and success and measure them by the eternal, not the earthly, standard. When after thirty obscure, toilsome, unrecorded years in the shop of the village carpenter, one came forth to be pre-eminently the man of sorrows, to wander from city to city in homeless labors, and to expire in lonely agony upon the shameful cross
was that a failure. #Quote by Frederic Farrar
Lonely quotes by Alan Bradley
#22. There's a lot to be said for being alone. But you and I know, don't we, Flavia, that being alone and being lonely are not at all the same thing? #Quote by Alan Bradley
Lonely quotes by Jane Leavy
#23. He really loved baseball and loved being on the field. But Mantle was lonely in a lot of ways. He had many great friends, and by all accounts was a good, generous and loyal friend. But there were a lot of people who wanted only a piece of him. #Quote by Jane Leavy
Lonely quotes by Natsuki Takaya
#24. It's lonely to say goodbye. Very lonely. Please. Cry with me. Maybe there's nothing we can do about this. But at least, for now ... cry with me. Like your entire body ... is screaming at the sky. Like it's raging against the world. I lost something. And I don't have a single guarantee. The fear of living in this world again after that ... I have only a shred of hope to sustain me. So I want you at least ... to cry. Cry. Cry with me. Like the day you were first born into this world. #Quote by Natsuki Takaya
Lonely quotes by Courtney Milan
#25. Sometimes I wish that this quest had not come to me. Justice is an impossible beast to track. The trail is lonely, and she offers no reward when she's caught but the promise of another hunt. #Quote by Courtney Milan
Lonely quotes by John O'Donohue
#26. There is a lantern in the soul, which makes your solitude luminous. Solitude need not remain lonely. It can awaken to its luminous warmth. The soul redeems and transfigures everything because the soul is the divine space. When you inhabit your solitude fully and experience its outer extremes of isolation and abandonment, you will find that at its heart there is neither loneliness nor emptiness but intimacy and shelter. #Quote by John O'Donohue
Lonely quotes by Morrissey
#27. We're all lonely, but I'd rather be lonely by myself than with a long list of duties and obligations. I think that's why people kill themselves, really. #Quote by Morrissey
Lonely quotes by Henry Kissinger
#28. To undertake a journey on a road never before traveled requires character and courage: character because the choice is not obvious; courage because the road will be lonely at first. #Quote by Henry Kissinger
Lonely quotes by Prince
#29. It's 2 o'clock in the morning and I just can't sleep Outside the rain is pourin', I'm lonely as can be Maybe 2night'll be different than the nights before I need 2 feel someone beside me, I can't be alone no more #Quote by Prince
Lonely quotes by Richard Ford
#30. ...since he seemed to be the one left out somehow, the one who would be lonely soon, the one who had done something he would someday wish he hadn't and would have no one to tell him that it was all right, that they forgave him, that these things happen in the world. #Quote by Richard Ford
Lonely quotes by Zøe Haslie
#31. It's hard, and it's painful, and it's tiresome, and it's lonely, and if on top of i, you really don't think you're gonna make it, it's just cruel and pointless. #Quote by Zøe Haslie
Lonely quotes by Joseph Conrad
#32. The artist descends within himself, and in that lonely region of stress and strife, if he be deserving and fortunate, he finds the terms of his appeal. His appeal is made to our less obvious capacities: to that part of our nature which, because of the warlike conditions of existence, is necessarily kept out of sight within the more resisting and hard qualities ... His appeal is less loud, more profound, less distinct, more stirring - and sooner forgotten. Yet its effect endures forever ... the artist appeals to that part of our being which is not dependent on wisdom: to that in us which is a gift and not an acquisition - and, therefore, more permanently enduring. #Quote by Joseph Conrad
Lonely quotes by Melissa Etheridge
#33. I've sold my soul for freedom. It's lonely but it's sweet. #Quote by Melissa Etheridge
Lonely quotes by Charles Dickens
#34. You!' said the old man contemptuously. 'What do you know of the time when young men shut themselves up in those lonely rooms, and read and read, hour after hour, and night after night, till their reason wandered beneath their midnight studies; till their mental powers were exhausted; till morning's light brought no freshness or health to them; and they sank beneath the unnatural devotion of their youthful energies to their dry old books? #Quote by Charles Dickens
Lonely quotes by Leonard Cohen
#35. It's coming to America first, The cradle of the best and of the worst. It's here they got the range And the machinery for change And it's here they got the spiritual thirst. It's here the family's broken And it's here the lonely say That the heart has got to open In a fundamental way: Democracy is coming to the U.S.A. O mighty Ship of State! To the Shores of Need Past the Reefs of Greed Through the Squalls of Hate Sail on, sail on. #Quote by Leonard Cohen
Lonely quotes by Brit Bennett
#36. She hadn't realized how long it takes to become somebody else, or how lonely it can be living in a world not meant for you. #Quote by Brit Bennett
Lonely quotes by Marlene Dietrich
#37. You're never lonely with a book. #Quote by Marlene Dietrich
Lonely quotes by Kyung-Sook Shin
#38. I wish someone would promise me that nothing is meaningless," he said. "I wish there were promises worth believing in. That after we've been hunted and lonely and anxious and living in fear, there is something else. Considering the way we are living right now, if we were young at the end of our lives instead, then maybe our dreams could come true. #Quote by Kyung-Sook Shin
Lonely quotes by Alexandra Bracken
#39. So thought crossed my mind," Liam said suddenly.
"That must've been a lonely journey," Chubs said flipping the pages of his book. #Quote by Alexandra Bracken
Lonely quotes by Barbara Abercrombie
#40. Writing can be a lonely business. But gradually your characters, or the scenes and peopl from your past, begin to rise up around you, and you find yourself writing your way out of loneliness, writing into your own company. #Quote by Barbara Abercrombie
Lonely quotes by Riley Sager
#41. I try to pretend I'm not as lonely as I feel. #Quote by Riley Sager
Lonely quotes by David Boehi
#42. Notice that God did much more than give Adam someone so that he wouldn't be lonely. God's solution for Adam's need was to "make him a helper suitable for him." It's important here to note that "helper" does not mean "inferior person." On the contrary, in the day when Moses penned these words, to identify a woman as a "helper" ran countercultural to the common low view of women. Moses actually elevated the sense of a woman's worth and role by calling her by the same name used in other places in the Old Testament to describe God Himself (see Pss. 30:10 and 54:4). To be called a "helper" here speaks more to the simple fact that God had plans for Adam that he could not fulfill without a mate - he was incomplete. Adam needed Eve. #Quote by David Boehi
Lonely quotes by Jarod Kintz
#43. When I'm lonely I stand in the corner and play my saxophone and feel sorry for myself. I would ask you to accompany me on the piano, but if I did that I wouldn't be lonely, would I? And what's the point of a saxophone if not to celebrate despair? #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Lonely quotes by Colleen Houck
#44. I don't mind being alone either. The only problem is that if you're always alone, you get lonely. #Quote by Colleen Houck
Lonely quotes by Manal Al-Sharif
#45. I was lonely, desperate, and angry. At that moment, I truly understood what it meant to be a Saudi woman. It meant being confronted with every possible kind of
obstacle and discrimination. It meant being told that if you want to race with men, you'd have to do it with your hands and legs cut off. I started to wish I had been born somewhere - anywhere - else. #Quote by Manal Al-Sharif
Lonely quotes by AVA.
#46. there is a difference between
loneliness and solitude,
one will empty you and
one will fill you.

you have the power to choose. #Quote by AVA.
Lonely quotes by Stephen Fry
#47. He had quickly happened upon the truth which many lonely contemporaries would never discover, the truth that everybody, simply everybody, was panting for it and could, with patience, be shown that they were panting for it. So Adrian grabbed what was to hand and had the time of his life genitally - focusing exclusively on his own gender of course, for this was 1973 and girls had not yet been invented. #Quote by Stephen Fry
Lonely quotes by Anna Kavan
#48. In a polished surface of metal I happen to notice my reflected face; it wears a pale, beaten lonely look, eyes looking out at nothing with an expression of fear, frightened and lonely in a nightmare world. Something, I don't know what, makes me think of my childhood; I remember myself as a schoolchild sitting at a hard wooden desk, and then as a little girl with thick, fair, wind-tossed hair, feeding the swans in a park. And it seems both strange and sad to me that all those childish years were spent in preparation for this – that, forgotten by everybody, with a beaten face, I should serve machinery in a place far away from the sun. #Quote by Anna Kavan
Lonely quotes by Joseph Wood Krutch
#49. The snow itself is lonely or, if you prefer, self-sufficient. There is no other time when the whole world seems composed of one thing and one thing only. #Quote by Joseph Wood Krutch
Lonely quotes by Ruta Sepetys
#50. What a group we were. A pregnant girl in love, a kindly shoemaker, an orphan boy, a blind girl, and a giantess who complained that everyone was in her way when she herself took up the most room. And me, a lonely girl who missed her family and begged for a second chance. #Quote by Ruta Sepetys
Lonely quotes by Henryk Sienkiewicz
#51. The sky is one whole, the water another; and between those two infinities the soul of man is in loneliness. #Quote by Henryk Sienkiewicz
Lonely quotes by Jan Morris
#52. Sigmund Freud was also frustrated here. In a city that later embraced his ideas with particular zeal, being organically inclined towards neurosis, he himself found only failure. He came to Trieste on the train from Vienna in 1876, commissioned by the Institute of Comparative Anatomy at Vienna University to solve a classically esoteric zoological puzzle: how eels copulated. Specialist as he later became in the human testicle and its influence upon the psyche, Freud diligently set out to discover the elusive reproductive organs whose location had baffled investigators since the time of Aristotle. He did not solve the mystery, but I like to imagine him dissecting his four hundred eels in the institute's zoological station here. Solemn, earnest and bearded I fancy him, rubber-gloved and canvas-aproned, slitting them open one after the other in their slimy multitudes. Night after night I see him peeling off his gloves with a sigh to return to his lonely lodgings, and saying a weary goodnight to the lab assistant left to clear up the mess - "Goodnight, Alfredo", "Goodnight, Herr Doktor. Better luck next time, eh?" But the better luck never came; the young genius returned to Vienna empty-handed, so to speak, but perhaps inspired to think more exactly about the castration complex. #Quote by Jan Morris
Lonely quotes by Journey
#53. Just a small town girl, living in a lonely world, took the midnight train going anywhere ...
Just a city boy, born and raised in South Detroit, took the midnight train going anywhere ... #Quote by Journey
Lonely quotes by Haruki Murakami
#54. Reality was utterly coolheaded and utterly lonely. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Lonely quotes by Rollo May
#55. Anxiety, the other characteristic of modern man, is even more basic than emptiness and loneliness. For being "hollow" and lonely would not bother us except that it makes us prey to that peculiar psychological pain and turmoil called anxiety. #Quote by Rollo May
Lonely quotes by Deb Caletti
#56. The loneliness you feel with another person, the wrong person, is the loneliest of all. #Quote by Deb Caletti
Lonely quotes by Khaled Hosseini
#57. I was an only, and often lonely, child. After they'd had me, my parents, who'd met back in Pakistan when they were both around forty, had decided against tempting fate a second time. I remember how I would eye with envy all the kids in our neighborhood, in my school, who had a little brother or sister. How bewildered I was by the way some of them treated each other, oblivious to their own good luck. They acted like wild dogs. Pinching, hitting, pushing, betraying one another any way they could think of. Laughing about it too. They wouldn't speak to one another. I didn't understand. Me, I spent most of my early years craving a sibling. #Quote by Khaled Hosseini
Lonely quotes by Edmond Rostand
#58. CYRANO:
Thy name is in my heart as in a sheep-bell,
And as I ever tremble, thinking of thee,
Ever the bell shakes, ever thy name ringeth!
All things of thine I mind, for I love all things;
I know that last year on the twelfth of May-month,
To walk abroad, one day you changed your hair-plaits!
I am so used to take your hair for daylight
That,--like as when the eye stares on the sun's disk,
One sees long after a red blot on all things--
So, when I quit thy beams, my dazzled vision
Sees upon all things a blonde stain imprinted.

ROXANE (agitated):
Why, this is love indeed!. . .

CYRANO:
Ay, true, the feeling
Which fills me, terrible and jealous, truly
Love,--which is ever sad amid its transports!
Love,--and yet, strangely, not a selfish passion!
I for your joy would gladly lay mine own down,
--E'en though you never were to know it,--never!
--If but at times I might--far off and lonely,--
Hear some gay echo of the joy I bought you!
Each glance of thine awakes in me a virtue,--
A novel, unknown valor. Dost begin, sweet,
To understand? So late, dost understand me?
Feel'st thou my soul, here, through the darkness mounting?
Too fair the night! Too fair, too fair the moment!
That I should speak thus, and that you should hearken!
Too fair! In moments when my hopes rose proudest,
I never hoped such guerdon. Naught is left me
#Quote by Edmond Rostand
Lonely quotes by Taylor Swift
#59. If I looked at every other girl in the entertainment industry as competition, my life would be really lonely. I wouldn't have some of the coolest friends that I'm so glad I've gotten to know. #Quote by Taylor Swift
Lonely quotes by Bob Seger
#60. Some people say love is a losing game, you start with fire and you lose the flame. The ashes smolder, but the warmth's soon gone, you end up cold and lonely on your own. #Quote by Bob Seger
Lonely quotes by Meg Cabot
#61. Once in a While
Once in a while you regret the road not taken
Start giving up on the plans you made
Once in a while you feel so forsaken
Wondering why so many took, not gave
Once in a while you ask, how could this happen?
How did I end up in these shoes?
But once in a while you meet a special someone
Someone who chose the same path as you
And suddenly it stops feeling so lonely
Out on that road that you had to choose
And that's when you know it all was worth it
Because once in a while dreams do come true #Quote by Meg Cabot
Lonely quotes by Sherry Turkle
#62. People are lonely. The network is seductive. But if we are always on, we may deny ourselves the rewards of solitude. #Quote by Sherry Turkle
Lonely quotes by Ron Rash
#63. She realized that being starved for words was the same as being starved for food, because both left a hollow place inside you, a place you needed filled to make it through another day. Rachel remembered how growing up she'd thought living on a farm with just a father was as lonely as you could be. (130) #Quote by Ron Rash
Lonely quotes by Alain De Botton
#64. Solitary though we may have become, we haven't of course given up all hope of forming relationships. In the lonely canyons of the modern city, there is no more honoured emotion than love. However, this is not the love of which religions speak, not the expansive, universal brotherhood of mankind; it is a more jealous, restricted and ultimately meaner variety. It is a romantic love which sends us on a maniacal quest for a single person with whom we hope to achieve a life-long and complete communion, one person in particular who will spare us any need for people in general. #Quote by Alain De Botton
Lonely quotes by David Nichollss
#65. He rests his head against the mirror and exhales. In the years he was with Emma he sometimes wondered idly what it would be like if she weren't around; not in a morbid way, just pragmatically, speculatively, because don't all lovers do this? Wonder how he would be without her? Now the answer is in the mirror. Loss has endowed him stupid and banal. Without her he is without merit or virtue or purpose a shabby, lonely, middle aged drunk, poisoned with regret and shame. #Quote by David Nichollss
Lonely quotes by Ken Hollings
#66. We will never understand our world until we have come to terms with its future: it is the age in which we live. The Cold War depended upon internal division in order to maintain itself. Behind its various feints, games and strategies lay a perception of behavior as a form of enforced conformity. People would only do what they were prompted to do. This was the thinking that held the lonely crowd together, briefly connecting the forward thrust of material progress with the broader evolutionary curve. #Quote by Ken Hollings
Lonely quotes by J.C. Patrick
#67. After a few more minutes of daydreaming about how fabulous I could become, I look down at the heading on my paper: Janey's Reinvention Plan. It appears lonely at the top of the page. I should probably add some bullets beneath, but I've never been much of a list maker. #Quote by J.C. Patrick
Lonely quotes by Wilhelm Reich
#68. For centuries great, brave, lonely men have been telling you what to do. Time and again you have corrupted, diminished and demolished their teachings; time and again you have been captivated by their weakest points, taken not the great truth, but some trifling error as your guiding principal. #Quote by Wilhelm Reich
Lonely quotes by Joseph Fink
#69. She left the shower as most people leave showers, clean and a little lonely. #Quote by Joseph Fink
Lonely quotes by Markus Zusak
#70. For a long time, she sat and saw.
She had seen her brother die with one eye open, on still in a dream. She had said goodbye to her mother and imagined her lonely wait for a train back home to oblivion. A woman of wire had laid herself down, her scream traveling the street, till it fell sideways like a rolling coin starved of momentum. A young man was hung by a rope made of Stalingrad snow. She had watched a bomber pilot die in a metal case. She had seen a Jewish man who had twice given her the most beautiful pages of her life marched to a concentration camp. And at the center of all of it, she saw the Fuhrer shouting his words and passing them around.
Those images were the world, and it stewed in her as she sat with the lovely books and their manicured titles. It brewed in her as she eyed the pages full to the brims of their bellies with paragraphs and words. #Quote by Markus Zusak
Lonely quotes by Jodie Foster
#71. When I went home, my family became a little lonely family because it was just me and my mom. Part of my longing to go back to work was wanting to be surrounded by these people who were teaching me things and drinking bad coffee at three in the morning while we were lying around in a bikini in the winter. Somehow it just felt like real life. It felt more like real life than my life. #Quote by Jodie Foster
Lonely quotes by Alan W. Watts
#72. The sensation of "I" as a lonely and isolated center of being is so powerful and commonsensical, and so fundamental to our modes of speech and thought, to our laws and social institutions, that we cannot experience selfhood except as something superficial in the scheme of the universe. I seem to be a brief light that flashes but once in all the aeons of time - a rare, complicated, and all-too-delicate organism on the fringe of biological evolution, where the wave of life bursts into individual, sparkling, and multicolored drops that gleam for a moment only to vanish forever. Under such conditioning it seems impossible and even absurd to realize that myself does not reside in the drop alone, but in the whole surge of energy which ranges from the galaxies to the nuclear fields in my body. #Quote by Alan W. Watts
Lonely quotes by Paul Celan
#73. The poem is lonely. It is lonely and en route. Its author stays with it. Does this very fact not place the poem already here, at its inception, in the encounter, in the mystery of encounter? #Quote by Paul Celan
Lonely quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#74. [O]n general principles it is best that I should not leave the country. Scotland Yard feels lonely without me, and it causes an unhealthy excitement among the criminal classes. #Quote by Arthur Conan Doyle
Lonely quotes by Deborah Heiligman
#75. How much there is in art that is beautiful, if only one can remember what one has seen, one is never empty or truly lonely, and never alone.
-Vincent Van Gogh #Quote by Deborah Heiligman
Lonely quotes by Ann Miller
#76. Honestly, I have had to live like a high priestess in this show. It is a very, very lonely life. When you work the way I work - that means hard - there's no time for play. #Quote by Ann Miller
Lonely quotes by Stephane Mallarme
#77. In reading, a lonely quiet concert is given to our minds; all our mental faculties will be present in this symphonic exaltation. #Quote by Stephane Mallarme
Lonely quotes by Germaine Greer
#78. Loneliness is never more cruel than when it is felt in close propinquity with someone who has ceased to communicate. #Quote by Germaine Greer
Lonely quotes by William Makepeace Thackeray
#79. How lonely we are in the world; how selfish and secret, everybody! #Quote by William Makepeace Thackeray
Lonely quotes by Richard Brautigan
#80. Your Catfish Friend

If I were to live my life
in catfish forms
in scaffolds of skin and whiskers
at the bottom of a pond
and you were to come by
one evening
when the moon was shining
down into my dark home
and stand there at the edge
of my affection
and think, "It's beautiful
here by this pond. I wish
somebody loved me,"
I'd love you and be your catfish
friend and drive such lonely
thoughts from your mind
and suddenly you would be
at peace,
and ask yourself, "I wonder
if there are any catfish
in this pond? It seems like
a perfect place for them. #Quote by Richard Brautigan
Lonely quotes by John F. Kennedy
#81. Too often in the past, we have thought of the artist as an idler and dilettante and of the lover of arts as somehow sissy and effete. We have done both an injustice. The life of the artist is, in relation to his work, stern and lonely. He has labored hard, often amid deprivation, to perfect his skill. He has turned aside from quick success in order to strip his vision of everything secondary or cheapening. His working life is marked by intense application and intense discipline. #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Lonely quotes by Anna Kavan
#82. It's lonely? Sure, it's lonely. That's what you asked for, didn't you? After all, if you hadn't been too superior for the gang, you wouldn't be here. And think how much more distinguished it is to be on your own, or with one or two individualists like yourself, than to be an ordinary gregarious animal going about with the herd. #Quote by Anna Kavan
Lonely quotes by Ethan Hawke
#83. It's kind of like this," Decker said: "You wake up in the middle of the night and you're dying for a glass of milk. So you stumble out of bed, stub your toe in the darkness, scream with pain, and limp your way to the refrigerator. You open it up and the light is brilliant. You're saved. Then you fold back the paper container, open up the milk, take a deep breath, and put it to your lips. Only
yhrch!
the milk is spoiled. Sure, you're bummed. You fold the thing close and put it back in the fridge. It's dark again. But as you're making your way to your lonely old bed, you think to yourself, Wait a minute, maybe that milk wasn't so bad. And I am still thirsty? So you do an about-face and go back to the fridge. The light warms you up again. You take a sip and yup, it's still spoiled. That, to me, is the fitting metaphor for most every relationship I've ever been in. #Quote by Ethan Hawke
Lonely quotes by Malcolm Lowry
#84. There was no mistaking, even in the uncertain light, the hand, half crabbed, half generous, and wholly drunken, of the Consul himself, the Greek e's, the flying buttresses of d's, the t's like lonely wayside crosses save where they crucified an entire word. #Quote by Malcolm Lowry
Lonely quotes by Haruki Murakami
#85. April and May were painful, lonely months for me because I couldn't talk to you. I never knew that spring could be so painful and lonely. Better to have three Februaries than a spring like this. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Lonely quotes by Joseph Conrad
#86. We wander in our thousands over the
face of the earth, the illustrious and the obscure, earning beyond the
seas our fame, our money, or only a crust of bread; but it seems to me
that for each of us going home must be like going to render an account.
We return to face our superiors, our kindred, our friends
those whom we
obey, and those whom we love; but even they who have neither, the most
free, lonely, irresponsible and bereft of ties,
even those for whom
home holds no dear face, no familiar voice,
even they have to meet the
spirit that dwells within the land, under its sky, in its air, in its
valleys, and on its rises, in its fields, in its waters and its trees
a
mute friend, judge, and inspirer. #Quote by Joseph Conrad
Lonely quotes by Helen Hoang
#87. Yes, she was lonely. Yes, she had a broken heart. But at least she had herself. #Quote by Helen Hoang
Lonely quotes by Frank Herbert
#88. Some say," Scytale said, "that people cling to Imperial leadership because space is infinite. They feel lonely without a unifying symbol. For a lonely people, the Emperor is a definite place. They can turn toward him and say: 'See, there He is. He makes us one.' Perhaps religion serves the same purpose, m'Lord. #Quote by Frank Herbert
Lonely quotes by J.K. Rowling
#89. There were once three brothers who were traveling along a lonely, winding road at twilight - '"
"Midnight, our mum always told us," said Ron, who had stretched out, arms behind his head, to listen. Hermione shot him a look of annoyance.
"Sorry, I just think it's a bit spookier if it's midnight!" said Ron.
"Yeah, because we really need a bit more fear in our lives," said Harry before he could stop himself. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Lonely quotes by Henry Abbey
#90. Our yesterdays Are like a lonely and a ruined land Wherein a breeze of recollection sighs
A fading land to which is no return. #Quote by Henry Abbey
Lonely quotes by Desmond Tutu
#91. Much depends on your attitude. If you are filled with negative judgment and anger, then you will feel separate from other people. You will feel lonely. But if you have an open heart and are filled with trust and friendship, even if you are physically alone, even living a hermit's life, you will never feel lonely. #Quote by Desmond Tutu
Lonely quotes by Seema Gupta
#92. He could not fit in my imagination and I was not fit for his Real and the conflict between imagination and real sadly made us apart #Quote by Seema Gupta
Lonely quotes by Betty Smith
#93. Francie always remembered what the kind teacher told her. 'You know, Francie, a lot of people would think that these stories that you're making up all the time were terrible lies because they are not the truth as people see the truth. In the future, when something comes up, you tell exactly how it happened but write down for yourself the way you think it should have happened. Tell the truth and write the story. Then you won't get mixed up.'
It was the best advice Francie ever got. Truth and fancy were so mixed up in her mind
as they are in the mind of every lonely child
that she didn't know which was which. #Quote by Betty Smith
Lonely quotes by Munia Khan
#94. If you feel all damp and lonely like a mushroom, find the thick, creamy soup of joyfulness and just dive into it in order to make life tastier #Quote by Munia Khan
Lonely quotes by Michael     Ryan
#95. THIS IS WHY

He will never be given to wonder much
if he was the mouth for some cruel force
that said it. But if he were
(this will comfort her) less than one moment
out of millions had he meant it.

So many years and so many turns
they had swerved around the subject.
And he will swear for many more
the kitchen and everything in it vanished --

the oak table, their guests, the refrigerator door
he had been surely propped against--
all changed to rusted ironwork and ash
except in the center in her linen caftan:
she was not touched.

He remembers the silence before he spoke
and her nodding a little,
as if in the meat of this gray waste
here was the signal

for him to speak what they had long agreed,
what somewhere they had prepared together.
And this one moment in the desert of ash
stretches into forever.

They had been having a dinner party.
She had been lonely.
A friend asked her almost joking
if she had ever felt really crazy,

and when she started to unwind her answer
in long, lovely sentences like scarves within her
he saw this was the way
they could no longer talk together.

And that is when he said it,
in front of the guests,
because he couldn't bear to hear her.
And this is why the guests have left
and she screams as he comes near her. #Quote by Michael Ryan
Lonely quotes by Lee Eisenberg
#96. Anais Nin responds to the age-old question of why some people are compelled to write:

We... write to heighten our own awareness of life, we write to lure and enchant and console others, we write to serenade our lovers. We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospection. We write, like Proust, to render all of it eternal, and to persuade ourselves that it is eternal. We write to be able to transcend our life, to reach beyond it. We write to teach ourselves to speak with others, to record the journey into the labyrinth, we write to expand our world when we feel strangled, or constricted, or lonely. We write as the birds sing. As the primitive dance their rituals. If you do not breathe through writing, if you do not cry out in writing, or sing in writing, then don't write.

Now, please read that one more time. But this time, substitute the word "live" for the word "write" and there you have it - the point that's always been right there in front of our nose. #Quote by Lee Eisenberg
Lonely quotes by Brian Stann
#97. If you don't take charge of your transition, it is a dark and lonely road #Quote by Brian Stann
Lonely quotes by Anusha Atukorala
#98. Sometimes the journey is too long; sometimes it is too short. Sometimes too lonely; sometimes too difficult. But God's love is your resting place and anchor; His light your pathway. #Quote by Anusha Atukorala
Lonely quotes by Sharon Lynn Fisher
#99. I liked to tinker with things, like Father. Make things with my hands. I liked to be alone, but not to be lonely. You were my only friend. You and Dutch. #Quote by Sharon Lynn Fisher
Lonely quotes by Immortal Technique
#100. And crying out to the sky cause he was lonely and scared
But only the devil responded, cause God wasn't there
And right then he knew what it was to be empty and cold
And so he jumped off the roof and died with no soul #Quote by Immortal Technique
Lonely quotes by Yul Brynner
#101. We are born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Everything in-between is a gift. #Quote by Yul Brynner
Lonely quotes by Kristin Michelle Elizabeth
#102. The life of the party is actually an introverted recluse. She knows the difference between being alone and being lonely. The latter is a feeling she has yet to experience. If she invites you into her world, she plans on keeping you. #Quote by Kristin Michelle Elizabeth
Lonely quotes by Timeri N. Murari
#103. Isa looked down the river to the Taj Mahal. It shone harshly in the midday sun, the marble glared back at the sky and it stood isolated and alone. It needed a companion of beauty, but there was none in this world. Isa had thought long about the tomb; it had life, it breathed. He imagined the rise and fall of the stone as it sighed. He realized it was lonely. It was a perfect thing in an imperfect world, and that was an awesome burden. #Quote by Timeri N. Murari
Lonely quotes by J.K. Rowling
#104. DRACO: Astoria always knew that she was not destined for old age. She wanted me to have somebody when she left, because...it is exceptionally lonely, being Draco Malfoy. I will always be suspected. There is no escaping the past. I never realized, though, that by hiding him away from this gossiping, judgmental world, I ensured that my son would emerge shrouded in worse suspicion than I ever endured. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Lonely quotes by Sanhita Baruah
#105. Do you know that pain of leaving when you look back expecting to see a face waving goodbye at you but all you see is a dark abandoned corner?
There won't be any reason to return then.
All you can do is look ahead and not to stumble and fall on the pit ahead waiting for you. #Quote by Sanhita Baruah
Lonely quotes by Swami Dhyan Giten
#106. When our heart is closed, it creates a lonely and isolated feeling. It prevents us from seeing the love that surrounds us all the time. It is when we begin to open our heart that we discover a feeling of oneness in love with other people, with nature, with the trees, with the stones, with the ocean and with the blue sky. #Quote by Swami Dhyan Giten
Lonely quotes by Debasish Mridha
#107. I often choose to be alone, but I never feel lonely. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Lonely quotes by Agnes Denes
#108. One thing that's paramount in my life is that I am alone. I'm a loner. And yet I have many friends and I don't feel lonely. And I even like my own company. But when I'm alone, it's to read or write. I'm in my thoughts. Mostly I'm learning. #Quote by Agnes Denes
Lonely quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
#109. The more we speak of solitude, the clearer it becomes that at the bottom it is not something one can choose to take or leave. We are lonely. One can deceive oneself about it and act as if it were not so. That is all. But it is so much better to see that we are so, indeed even to presuppose it. It will make us dizzy, of course; because all the focal points on which our eyes were used to resting are taken away from us, there is nothing near us anymore, and everything distant is infinitely distant. #Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke
Lonely quotes by J.K. Rowling
#110. She often felt lonely and drained these days, shuttling between her husband and son, who seemed to exist entirely independently, as alien to each other as landlord and lodger. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Lonely quotes by Niels Hoyer
#111. If I had the strength, I would write and tell her [Grete] that I am progressing. She would come to me; but that I don't want. I am so lonely and so weak. But when I am most dejected, a letter comes from Claude; he is waiting for me--dear, dear Claude."

The shadows were closing round Lili Elbe. She wrote one more letter at the beginning of September. It was addressed to her sister.

"Now I know that death is near. Last night I dreamt about Mother. She took me in her arms and she called me Lili..and Father was also there. #Quote by Niels Hoyer
Lonely quotes by Andrea Seigel
#112. One of the many advantages of being a loner is that often there's time to think, ponder, brood, meditate deeply, and figure things out to one's satisfaction. #Quote by Andrea Seigel
Lonely quotes by Kristian Birkeland
#113. A very few lonely pioneers make their way to high places never before visited ... they create the living conditions of mankind and the majority are living on their work. #Quote by Kristian Birkeland
Lonely quotes by Paula Modersohn-Becker
#114. It is my experience that marriage does not make one happier. It destroys the illusion that has been the essence of one's previous existence, that there existed something like a soul-mate. The feeling of not being understood is heightened in marriage by the fact that one's entire life beforehand had the aim of finding a being who would understand one. But isn't it better to exist without such an illusion and look this great lonely truth straight in the eye? #Quote by Paula Modersohn-Becker
Lonely quotes by Michael Muhammad Knight
#115. People say that America has no religion, but it's the opposite: America has every religion, all the old ones, and produces more new ones than anywhere else on earth. America;'s religious life is like the photo mosaic in which a thousand little images add up to one big picture, except there's no big picture, just a blob of unrelated and unrelatable images, texts, and poses, the freedom to take what you want from a religion and reject hte rest and be lonely, standing outsdie the warm shelters of temples with your own goon god that no one else can understand. #Quote by Michael Muhammad Knight
Lonely quotes by Winston Churchill
#116. Happy are the painters, for they shall not be lonely. Light and colour, peace and hope, will keep them company to the end of the day. #Quote by Winston Churchill
Lonely quotes by Kapka Kassabova
#117. What if love is made and nothing else?
asked Narcissus, leaning over the green iris of water.

Nothing else,
cried Echo from the green cochlea of the woods.

And they were both right.
And they were both lonely. #Quote by Kapka Kassabova
Lonely quotes by Tom Robbins
#118. No. No, it was a lonely writer I met one stormy day in Laguna Beach. He had a poem about Thelonious Monk that he sealed in a tin can and labeled Campbell's Cream of Piano Soup. Later I hear he killed himself to avoid the draft. #Quote by Tom Robbins
Lonely quotes by Emily P. Freeman
#119. I don't remember anything about that summer because I existed in a lonely fog of memories, longing, and rejection. #Quote by Emily P. Freeman
Lonely quotes by Douglas Coupland
#120. Remember: the time you feel lonely is the time you most need to be by yourself. Life's cruelest irony. #Quote by Douglas Coupland
Lonely quotes by John Steinbeck
#121. He stopped, feeling lonely in his long speech. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Lonely quotes by Matt Haig
#122. The lonely mind in the busy city yearns for connection because it thinks human-to-human connection is the point of everything. But amid pure nature...solitude took on a different character. It became in itself a kind of connection. A connection between herself and the world. And between her and herself. #Quote by Matt Haig
Lonely quotes by Caitlyn Jenner
#123. Living by myself out in Malibu has been really good. I kind of have my freedom; I've got a whole house to myself. The tough part comes when sometimes, you know, you get pretty lonely. #Quote by Caitlyn Jenner
Lonely quotes by Eugene Delacroix
#124. The things one experiences alone with oneself are very much stronger and purer. #Quote by Eugene Delacroix
Lonely quotes by Elisabeth Elliot
#125. Lonely? Give it to Jesus. The loneliness itself is material for sacrifice. #Quote by Elisabeth Elliot
Lonely quotes by Ray Bradbury
#126. The crickets were listening. The night was listening to her. For a change, all of the far summer-night meadows and close summer-night trees were suspending motion; leaf, shrub, star, and meadow grass ceased their particular tremors and were listening to Lavinia Nebbs's heart. And perhaps a thousand miles away, across locomotive-lonely country, in an empty way station, a single traveler reading a dim newspaper under a solitary naked bulb, might raise up his head, listen, and think, What's that? and decide, Only a woodchuck, surely, beating on a hollow log. But it was Lavinia Nebbs, it was most surely the heart of Lavinia Nebbs. #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Lonely quotes by Deepak Chopra
#127. Emotional Freedom is a must-read for anyone who's tired of feeling frustrated, lonely, or stopped by fear. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Lonely quotes by Wordions
#128. It's sad to see just how many people are lonely together. #Quote by Wordions
Lonely quotes by Charlotte Eriksson
#129. No more blurry memories of nights with strangers but still alone... I'd had enough of homeless travelling just to feed my art and I wanted stability and comfort; a calm sense of existence. I wanted a friend, a hand to hold, arms to fall asleep in. #Quote by Charlotte Eriksson
Lonely quotes by Prince
#130. It's been so lonely without you here.
Like a bird, without a song.
Nothing can stop these lonely tears from falling.
So tell me baby, where did I go wrong? #Quote by Prince
Lonely quotes by R.K. Lilley
#131. You were wrong, Gram," I said softly, tone emotionless because I was resigned to the awful, lonely truth of it. "Love doesn't save our souls. It kills them. #Quote by R.K. Lilley
Lonely quotes by Patrick DeWitt
#132. The creak of bed springs suffering under the weight of a restless man is as lonely a sound as I know. #Quote by Patrick DeWitt
Lonely quotes by Marianne Williamson
#133. I surrender my fears and burdens to God. I needn't carry into my day the burdens of my existence. Rather, I surrender them into the hands of God. I know that they will be lifted from me, for what I place on the altar in my mind is then altered in my life. When I do not know what to say or do, He who is alive within me will illumine my thinking and guide my words. When a possible outcome makes me weak with fear, I will feel His arms around me. And when the road seems lonely and long before me, I will know I am not alone. Dear God, Please take from me the burdens that I carry. Please uplift my thinking and bring forth a miracle. Send a wave of love to disperse my fear. And so it is. Amen. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Lonely quotes by Sanhita Baruah
#134. Rule #1 of Traveling-

Lonely quotes by Lexi Ryan
#135. Single and independent are words women use to make themselves feel better about being lonely and overwhelmed. #Quote by Lexi Ryan
Lonely quotes by Peter Watts
#136. You know what happens when you keep a dog locked away from every living thing, except you visit once a day and kick the shit out of him?"
Perreault laughed nervously. "Someone actually tried that?"
"What happens is, the dog's a social animal, and it gets so lonely it actually looks forward to the shit-kicking. It asks to be kicked. It begs. #Quote by Peter Watts
Lonely quotes by Joseph McElroy
#137. Do we not use each other to slip across the frontiers of self-scrutiny as something other than lonely people? #Quote by Joseph McElroy
Lonely quotes by David Nicholls
#138. I have always been well liked, I think, always well regarded and respected, but having few enemies is not the same as having many friends, and there was no denying that I was, if not "lonely", more solitary than I'd hoped to be at that time. #Quote by David Nicholls
Lonely quotes by Pope Paul VI
#139. In America, you are not required to offer food to the hungry or shelter the homeless. There is no ordinance forcing you to visit the lonely, or comfort the infirmed. No where in the Constitution does it say you have to provide clothing to the poor. In fact, one of the nicest things about living here in America, is that you really don't have to do anything for anybody. But when you do, you give meaning and provide soul to the concept of community ... and develop a sense of purpose to something greater than one's self ... #Quote by Pope Paul VI
Lonely quotes by Edward Abbey
#140. The red dust and the burnt cliffs and the lonely sky- all that which lies beyond the end of the roads. #Quote by Edward Abbey
Lonely quotes by Janis Joplin
#141. Being an intellectual creates a lot of questions and no answers. #Quote by Janis Joplin
Lonely quotes by Susanna Clarke
#142. Perhaps I am too tame, too domestic a magician. But how does one work up a little madness? I meet with mad people every day in the street, but I never thought before to wonder how they got mad. Perhaps I should go wandering on lonely moors and barren shores. That is always a popular place for lunatics - in novels and plays at any rate. Perhaps wild England will make me mad. #Quote by Susanna Clarke
Lonely quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#143. Then what do you want?" she asked softly.
He shook his head without answering. But Sara knew. He wanted to be safe. If he were rich and powerful enough, he would never be hurt, lonely, or abandoned. He would never have to trust anyone. She continued to stroke his hair, playing lightly with the thick raven locks. 'Take a chance on me," she urged. "Do you really have so much to lose?"

He gave a harsh laugh and loosened his arms to release her. "More than you know."

Clinging to him desperately, Sara kept her mouth at his ear. "Listen to me." All she could do was play her last card. Her voice trembled with emotion. "You can't change the truth. You can act as though you're deaf and blind, you can walk away from me forever, but the truth will still be there, and you can't make it go away. I love you." She felt an involuntary tremor run through him. "I love you," she repeated. "Don't lie to either of us by pretending you're leaving for my good. All you'll do is deny us both a chance at happiness. I'll long for you every day and night, but at least my conscience will be clear. I haven't held anything back from you, out of fear or pride or stubbornness." She felt the incredible tautness of his muscles, as if he were carved from marble. "For once have the strength not to walk away," she whispered. "Stay with me. Let me love you, Derek."

He stood there frozen in defeat, with all the warmth and promise of her in his arms ... and he couldn't allow him #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Lonely quotes by Ismaaciil C. Ubax
#144. They say that difficult roads lead to beautiful destinations. If I had known that you'd be my destination, I wouldn't have been afraid of the dark lonely nights. I wouldn't have cursed the bumpy ride through the cruel Demonland of my thoughts. I would've laughed through the pain if I had known that you were waiting for me on the other side of the cactus field #Quote by Ismaaciil C. Ubax
Lonely quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#145. Some people hate being single so much that they are often the boyfriend or girlfriend of someone who they do not love. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Lonely quotes by Leo Buscaglia
#146. I believe that you control your destiny, that you can be what you want to be. You can also stop and say, 'No, I won't do it, I won't behave his way anymore. I'm lonely and I need people around me, maybe I have to change my methods of behaving,' and then you do it. #Quote by Leo Buscaglia
Lonely quotes by Marcia Sa Cavalcante Schuback
#147. Man is compelled to compel beings to his control, and thus he becomes a slave of his will to control, a slave of his own rights. Individuals become so individualistic that they become nothing more than a lonely crowd. #Quote by Marcia Sa Cavalcante Schuback
Lonely quotes by Pat Conroy
#148. I will take you down my own avenue of remembrance, which winds among the hazards and shadows of my single year as a plebe. I cannot come to this story in full voice. I want to speak for the boys who were violated by this school, the ones who left ashamed and broken and dishonored, who departed from the Institute with wounds and bitter grievances. I want also to speak for the triumphant boys who took everything the system could throw at them, endured every torment and excess, and survived the ordeal of the freshman year with a feeling of transformation and achievement that they never had felt before and would never know again with such clarity and elation.

I will speak from my memory- my memory- a memory that is all refracting light slanting through prisms and dreams, a shifting, troubled riot of electrons charged with pain and wonder. My memory often seems like a city of exiled poets afire with the astonishment of language, each believing in the integrity of his own witness, each with a separate version of culture and history, and the divine essentional fire that is poetry itself.

But i will try to isolate that one lonely singer who gathered the fragments of my plebe year and set the screams to music. For many years, I have refused to listen as his obsessive voice narrated the malignant litany of crimes against my boyhood. We isolate those poets who cause us the greatest pain; we silence them in any way we can. I have never allowed this furious dissi #Quote by Pat Conroy
Lonely quotes by Louisa May Alcott
#149. It takes so little to make a child happy, that it is a pity in a world full of sunshine and pleasant things, that there should be any wistful faces, empty hands, or lonely little hearts. #Quote by Louisa May Alcott
Lonely quotes by Sendhil Mullainathan
#150. One cost, for the lonely: If you want to be interesting, the one thing you shouldn't do is really focus on the fact that 'I want this person to like me.' That's going to make you very uninteresting. But the lonely, they just can't help but focus on that. #Quote by Sendhil Mullainathan
Lonely quotes by Northrop Frye
#151. The purest human act, and a model for all human acts, is an informative, creative act which transforms a world that is merely objective, set against us, in which we feel lonely and frightened and unwanted, into a home. #Quote by Northrop Frye
Lonely quotes by Julie Metz
#152. I learned that day that there is no more lonely state than being in a lonely marriage. #Quote by Julie Metz
Lonely quotes by Waylon H. Lewis
#153. I like the feeling of hunger for it reminds me of all those hundreds of months without you.

Missing you, thinking of you, like a friendly lonely thin tiger smelling the slip of a season into a new season. #Quote by Waylon H. Lewis
Lonely quotes by Sarah Wilson
#154. One of the dear, dear things about getting older, is that it does eventually dawn on you that there is no guidebook. One day it suddenly emerges: No one bloody gets it! None of us knows what we're doing.
Thing is, we all put a lot of effort into looking like we did get the guide, that of course we know how to do this caper called life. We put on a smile rather than tell friends we are desperately lonely. And we make loud, verbose claims at dinner parties to make everyone certain of our certainty. We're funny like that. #Quote by Sarah Wilson
Lonely quotes by Caroline Yawn
#155. I may be too young to be lonely, but I am too lonely to be young. #Quote by Caroline Yawn
Lonely quotes by Sherman Alexie
#156. Teenagers read millions of books every year. They read for entertainment and for education. They read because of school assignments and pop culture fads.
And there are millions of teens who read because they are sad and lonely and enraged. They read because they live in an often-terrible world. They read because they believe despite the callow protestations of certain adults that books-especially the dark and dangerous ones-will save them. #Quote by Sherman Alexie
Lonely quotes by Jincy Willett
#157. We are so lonely here, with only our loved ones for company. We kill, maim, insult our loved ones, or dream of doing so, to keep from going mad. And then disaster strikes. God, how we love disaster. #Quote by Jincy Willett
Lonely quotes by Anthony Hopkins
#158. I visualized a lot of things happening to me, because I was a lonely kid because I didn't understand anything about school. #Quote by Anthony Hopkins
Lonely quotes by Anne Sexton
#159. Her Kind

I have gone out, a possessed witch,
haunting the black air, braver at night;
dreaming evil, I have done my hitch
over the plain houses, light by light:
lonely thing, twelve-fingered, out of mind.
A woman like that is not a woman, quite.
I have been her kind.

I have found the warm caves in the woods,
filled them with skillets, carvings, shelves,
closets, silks, innumerable goods;
fixed the suppers for the worms and the elves:
whining, rearranging the disaligned.
A woman like that is misunderstood.
I have been her kind.

I have ridden in your cart, driver,
waved my nude arms at villages going by,
learning the last bright routes, survivor
where your flames still bite my thigh
and my ribs crack where your wheels wind.
A woman like that is not ashamed to die.
I have been her kind. #Quote by Anne Sexton
Lonely quotes by Ana Tejano
#160. He made me feel less lonely tonight by letting me into his world, and I found that I really liked being there. I wasn't ready to go back to my own. #Quote by Ana Tejano
Lonely quotes by Henry Rollins
#161. Just understand that the end began long ago We got here just in time Look All the squares in the sidewalks were already there All these strangers have more money than you do All the good riffs have been taken And everyone is so scared Murder is commonplace I don't even flinch at the gunshots outside my window I feel lonely without them #Quote by Henry Rollins
Lonely quotes by Frederick Buechner
#162. The congregation just sat or stood on the sidelines watching the splendor of it but without, as far as my experience went anyway, having any very satisfactory part in it. I felt like a child with his nose pressed to a bakery shop window - impressed by what I saw but a little lonely and unnourished. The sermon, on the other hand, was one that I will long remember. It was preached by a huge monk in cloth of gold, and his point was that there are many people in this world who do not realize how impoverished they are spiritually. "Even a dog knows when it is uncomfortable" was a phrase he used, but we whose spiritual discomfort is apt to be so profound are in many cases entirely unaware of it. #Quote by Frederick Buechner
Lonely quotes by Felix Arvers.
#163. My soul nurtures a secret,my heart a mystery
A lasting love I conceived in a brief moment
I bare without a word it's hopeless pain's torment
And the one who caused it will know of it hardly....

Alas,I would walk near her,but be unnoticed,
Always at her side and always will be lonely.
Thus I will pass my time on this earth so weary
Daring to ask for nothing,nothing to receive...

She whom has been made,so sweet and tender,
Goes her absent minded way,hearing nothing
Of this murmur of love raised in her steps...

Piously dutiful,unswervingly faithful,
She will say, reading these verses,so filled with her,
"Who is this woman?",and will never understand! #Quote by Felix Arvers.
Lonely quotes by Courtney Peppernell
#164. You are a lonely sailboat, afraid of drowning where no one will see. #Quote by Courtney Peppernell
Lonely quotes by Stephen King
#165. I think most kids have a place they go to when they're scared or lonely or just plain bored. They call it NeverLand or The Shire, Boo'ya Moon if they've got big imaginations and make it up for themselves. Most of them forget. The talented few - like Scott - harness their dreams and turn them into horses. #Quote by Stephen King
Lonely quotes by Mary MacLane
#166. I shall have to miss forever some beautiful, wonderful things because of that wretched, lonely childhood. There will always be a lacking, a wanting -- some dead branches that never grew leaves. It is not deaths and murders and plots and wars that make life tragedy. It is day after day, and year after year, and Nothing. It is a sunburned little hand reached out and Nothing put into it. #Quote by Mary MacLane
Lonely quotes by Ingrid Nickelsen
#167. The darkness is thick enough to conceal the worst crimes, leaving behind nothing but the fading stench of burning flesh that creeps into our nose and dies inside our veins. I open the window a tiny bit, finding little comfort in the thought that the distant screams of pain would awake me. I would be strong enough to lull myself into believing it was just a dream. The blissful dream of a lonely heart that finds succor in the everlasting arms of a fantasy. #Quote by Ingrid Nickelsen
Lonely quotes by Nitya Prakash
#168. For lonely people, music is a chance to be touched. #Quote by Nitya Prakash
Lonely quotes by Colleen Houck
#169. I could still feel the ghost of him hovering in the quiet, dark recess of my heart. It was as if he was just waiting for me to be lonely, or to let my guard down, so that he could surface and fill my mind again with thoughts of him. #Quote by Colleen Houck
Lonely quotes by Arina Tanemura
#170. Children are angels.
They are protected by God.
But because God cannot be seen, they feel lonely ...
... so they bid farewell to God ...
... and go to live with people.
They let go of the paradise that protected them ...
... to be loved by the ones they love. #Quote by Arina Tanemura
Lonely quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#171. To pass its threshold was to return to stagnation; to cross the silent hall, to ascend the darksome staircase, to seek my own lonely little room, and then to meet tranquil Mrs. Fairfax, and spend the long winter evening with her, and her only, was to quell wholly the faint excitement wakened by my walk, - to slip again over my faculties the viewless fetters of an uniform and too still existence; of an existence whose very privileges of security and ease I was becoming incapable of appreciating. What good it would have done me at that time to have been tossed in the storms of an uncertain struggling life, and to have been taught by rough and bitter experience to long for the calm amidst which I now repined! Yes, just as much good as it would do a man tired of sitting still in a "too easy chair" to take a long walk: and just as natural was the wish to stir, under my circumstances, as it would be under his. #Quote by Charlotte Bronte
Lonely quotes by Virginia Woolf
#172. It was chivalrous because she was too remote for real companionship, so that there was always a kind of chance in one's offering; perhaps she would not perceive it; perhaps she would kindle rapture by a sudden recognition; her distance made such close moments exquisitely sweet. But alas, no humble friendship however romantic, could give her the sense that we completely shared her thoughts; the nature of them made it hard for anyone to understand; and her sorrow was very lonely. Perhaps one would come into a room unexpectedly and surprise her in tears, and, to one's miserable confusion, she would hide them instantly, and speak ordinary words, as though she did not imagine that one could understand her suffering. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Lonely quotes by Sarah Dessen
#173. I was here, too. But all my life I felt like an observer than an active participant. It was safer there but could be lonely too, or so I was now realizing. Maybe there was a middle ground between living too hard and living at all. Maybe, here, I was finding it. #Quote by Sarah Dessen
Lonely quotes by Liv Ullmann
#174. I just think that sometimes it is less hard to wake up feeling lonely when you are alone than to wake up feeling lonely when you are with someone else. Some people would be better off alone, but they feel they've got to get hold of someone to prove they're worthwhile. #Quote by Liv Ullmann
Lonely quotes by Dan Chaon
#175. The baby's large eyes settled on him, and though this has been one of his happiest nights in his whole life, it made him melancholy. He had read somewhere that babies are instinctively drawn to faces, that they will fixate even on drawings or abstract, facelike shapes, and round objects with markings that might resemble eye-mouth-nose. It was information that struck him as terribly sad, terribly lonely - to imagine the infants of the world scoping the blurry atmosphere above them for faces the way primitive people scrutinized the stars for patterns, the way castaways stare at the moon, the blinking of a satellite. It made him sad to think of the baby gathering information - a mind, a soul, slowly solidifying around these impressions, coming to understand cause and effect, coming out of a blank or fog into reality. Into a reality. The true terror, Jonah thought, the true mystery of life was not that we are all going to die, but that we were all born, that we were all once little babies like this, unknowing and slowly reeling in the world, gathering it loop by loop like a ball of string. The true terror was that we once didn't exist and then, through no fault of our own, we had to. #Quote by Dan Chaon
Lonely quotes by Benjamin Alire Saenz
#176. Tell me," Dante said.
"It's sad. It's sad and it's lonely."
"Like you" he said. #Quote by Benjamin Alire Saenz
Lonely quotes by Asif Kapadia

Lonely quotes by Anne Frank
#178. You can be lonely even when you are loved by many people, since you are still not anybody's one and only. #Quote by Anne Frank
Lonely quotes by Amy Efaw
#179. Her keeper jersey; she thinks of it now. The number 1 on its back. A lonely number. Only one goalkeeper on the field. Only one player who guards the net. Only one who stands strong and alone behind the other ten players on the field. No place to hide. No way to disappear. #Quote by Amy Efaw
Lonely quotes by Ian Fleming
#180. Painters, writers, musicians are lonely people. So are statesmen and admirals and generals. But then, I added to be fair, so are criminals and lunatics. Let's just say, not to be too flattering, that true individuals are lonely. -- Vivienne Michel #Quote by Ian Fleming
Lonely quotes by Elizabeth Bowen
#181. And because no one answered or cared and a conversation went on without her she felt profoundly lonely, suspecting once more for herself a particular doom of exclusion. Something of the trees in their intimacy of shadow was shared by the husband and wife and their host in the tree-shadowed room. She thought of love with its gift of importance. "I must break in on all this," she thought as she looked around the room. #Quote by Elizabeth Bowen
Lonely quotes by Rae Mariz
#182. The quiet wasn't so lonely if you listened to how much sound was hidden in silence. #Quote by Rae Mariz
Lonely quotes by Mike S. Elton
#183. So the cold barracks were spared, lonely as they were, and the armories were unscathed, empty as they were, and the larders went unmolested, depleted as they were, and only the common people burned. #Quote by Mike S. Elton
Lonely quotes by Carson McCullers
#184. I think we look for the differences in people because it makes us less lonely. #Quote by Carson McCullers
Lonely quotes by Sri Aurobindo
#185. One mighty deed can change the course of things; a lonely thought becomes omnipotent. #Quote by Sri Aurobindo
Lonely quotes by John  Goode
#186. We're all lonely, we're all hurt, and we're all broken, Jeremy. We are all broken #Quote by John Goode
Lonely quotes by Anthony Browne
#187. A lot of my characters are underdogs or sad or lonely, but I had a comfortable, golden sort of childhood. #Quote by Anthony Browne
Lonely quotes by Felicia Day
#188. For a girl who was lonely and desperate for friends, that group of people was the most important social thing to happen to me growing up. I can't imagine being as confident about my passion for geeky things today without that opportunity to connect with OTHER people who were saying, "Wow, I love those geeky things, too!" That early community taught me how wonderful it is to connect with like-minded people. No matter how lonely and isolated and starved for connection you are, there's always the possibility in the online world that you can find a place to be accepted, or discover a friendship that's started with the smallest of interests but could last a lifetime. Your qualification for finding a place to belong is enthusiasm and passion, and I think that's a beautiful thing. #Quote by Felicia Day
Lonely quotes by James K.A. Smith
#189. Because when the thin gruel of do-it-yourself spirituality turns out to be isolating, lonely, and unable to endure crises, the spiritual-but-not-religious crowd might find itself surprisingly open to something entirely different. #Quote by James K.A. Smith
Lonely quotes by Alan Bradley
#190. Had I been too cruel to that horror, Miss Mountjoy? Too vindictive? Wasn't she, after all, just a harmless and lonely old spinster? Would a Larry de Luce have been more understanding?
'Hell, no!' I shouted into the wind ... #Quote by Alan Bradley
Lonely quotes by B.E. Sanderson
#191. That's the ultimate anonymity. Me in a cabin in the woods somewhere. I imagine I'll go to town once a week for groceries, make small talk with pleasant people that I will never get any closer to, and then go home." "It sounds lonely," he said. In the back of his head, he wondered if she didn't have the right idea. "You can be lonely in a room full of people. And perfectly content in a cabin by yourself. It all depends on what you're looking for in life. #Quote by B.E. Sanderson
Lonely quotes by Sherman Alexie
#192. You have to get very comfortable with the idea of being lonely. For all of human history, we've always run away from being lonely and now there are even more distractions. But that's the thing - if you're going to make the decision to rebel against your tribe, you're going to get very lonely. #Quote by Sherman Alexie
Lonely quotes by AnnaSophia Robb
#193. Well, I'm kind of an urban girl, I like big cities. I like New York, I like London, I like L.A. I like people, I get lonely, really, really easily. But, I think it was good, It was very different and I think that's good. #Quote by AnnaSophia Robb
Lonely quotes by Valerie Tripp
#194. If I loved someone, I could never let him go away from me. I would be too miserable and lonely. #Quote by Valerie Tripp
Lonely quotes by Ray Bradbury
#195. Any man who can take a TV wall apart and put it back together again, and most men can nowadays, is happier than any man who tries to slide-rule, measure, and equate the universe, which just won't be measured or equated without making man feel bestial and lonely. #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Lonely quotes by Lee Harris
#196. You will not always be joyous every moment of everyday, but you will never again feel the pit as quite so dark, quite so helpless, for you have identified who you are and you have found your hearts. That is a great gift both for you and the world.

Be patient with your hearts. Be patient with yourselves. It will not always be a sunny day, but it can always be a beautiful day. And you can always find the beauty in a day even if it is in the 24th hour. Remember that. Remember your connection. You have this connection now. Use it. It is your access. Why would you deny yourself this? Simply open your heart and ask for help if you are feeling lonely or in struggle. Open your heart and ask for love to enter it and it will. It truly will. #Quote by Lee Harris
Lonely quotes by John Mayer
#197. Tore up my heart and shut it down. Nothing to do, nowhere to be. A simple little kind of free. Nothing to do, no one but me, and that's all I need. I'm perfectly lonely. #Quote by John Mayer
Lonely quotes by Ree Drummond
#198. I'd been reflecting on this--the drastic turn my life and my outlook on love had taken--more and more on the evenings Marlboro Man and I spent together, the nights we sat on his quiet porch, with no visible city lights or traffic sounds anywhere. Usually we'd have shared a dinner, done the dishes, watched a movie. But we'd almost always wind up on his porch, sitting or standing, overlooking nothing but dark, open countryside illuminated by the clear, unpolluted moonlight. If we weren't wrapped in each other's arms, I imagined, the quiet, rural darkness might be a terribly lonely place. But Marlboro Man never gave me a chance to find out. #Quote by Ree Drummond
Lonely quotes by Kelly Corrigan
#199. But given everything I do know, no matter how hard it is, how lonely or stressful, still, I would not want to leave this earth without being a mother. #Quote by Kelly Corrigan
Lonely quotes by K. Bromberg
#200. Hey… this bed is awfully lonely without you in it." His sleepy morning rasp pulls at me and his words seduce me when I have no business being seduced.
"Believe me, I'd much rather be there with you - "
"Then get here as quick as you can, baby, because time's wasting. I have a long list of things to do today," he says, humor edging the suggestive tone of his voice. And I love this about him - about us - that just his voice can help ease the stress of my morning.
"What is it you have to do today?"
"You on the couch, you on the counter, you against the wall, you just about any place imaginable… #Quote by K. Bromberg
