What’s so Bad About Being Alone

“Be alone that is the secret of invention.
Be alone that is when ideas are born.”
~— Nikola Tesla 

“Solitude is independence.”
~— Hermann Hesse 

“We must become alone, so utterly alone,
That we withdraw to our innermost self.
It is a way of bitter suffering. But then our
solitude is overcome, we are no longer alone, for we find that our innermost self is the spirit.”
~— Hermann Hesse 

“I think it is very healthy to spend some time
alone. You need to know how to be alone,
and not be defined by any other person.”
~— Oscar Wilde 

“Solitude was my only consolation, deep,
dark, death like solitude.”
~— Mary W. Shelly 

“I restore myself when I am alone.”
~— Marilyn Monroe 

“My alone feels so good. I’ll only have you
if you’re sweeter than my solitude.”
~— Warsan Shire 

“I never found a companion that was
so companionable as solitude.”
~— Henry David Thoreau 

“Solitude is for me a fount of healing,
which makes my life worth living. Talking is
often torment for me, and I need many days
of silence to recover from the futility of words.”
~— C. G. Jung
