The thoughtful soul to solitude retires.
Solitude is the profoundest fact of the human condition. Man is the only being who knows he is alone.
Solitude, isolation, are painful things and beyond human endurance.
Solitude is not something you must hope for in the future. Rather, it is a deepening of the present, and unless you look for it in the present you will never find it.
Solitude is fine, but you need someone to tell you that solitude is fine.
Honore de Balzac
O solitude, where are the charms That sages have seen in thy face? Better dwell in the midst of alarms, Than reign in this horrible place.
Solitude is a breeding ground for idiosyncrasy, and I relish that about it, the way it liberates whim.
I like solitude. I'm very good at being disconnected. I do a lot of disappearing. People who know me go, 'Oh yeah, Mailman, she's gone into her cave again.' I'm like that, a bit of a hibernating bear. Like that crocodile that just sits there in the water and doesn't do much. I was always a bit of a dreamer as a kid, so that hasn't changed.
I think female solitude is a mental condition as well as a physical state. You can be married and a spinster. I think spinster is an identity every woman can claim, if she will...

Solitude has its own very strange beauty to it.
I love the solitude of being on a plane and finally getting to read an entire book and being left alone.
But in the end, in the end one is alone. We are all of us alone. I mean I'm told these days we have to consider ourselves as being in society... but in the end one knows one is alone, that one lives at the heart of a solitude.
I've always been drawn to solitude, felt a kind of luxurious relief in its self-generated pace and rhythms.
Solitude cherishes great virtues and destroys little ones.
Imagination, the traitor of the mind, has taken my solitude and slain it.
We need society, and we need solitude also, as we need summer and winter, day and night, exercise and rest.
Philip Gilbert Hamerton
Mass communication, radio, and especially television, have attempted, not without success, to annihilate every possibility of solitude and reflection.
Solitude begets whimsies.
Mary Wortley Montagu
As a model, I didn't have an identity; I was a chameleon, a silent actress. I was an amorphous thing. I wasn't full of personality, I was full of solitude and solemnity. I wasn't a cover-girl type.
The best thinking has been done in solitude. The worst has been done in turmoil.
Thomas A. Edison
I like solitude. I like the anomalous life. I like a quiet life.
Wit is a weapon. Jokes are a masculine way of inflicting superiority. But humor is the pursuit of a gentle grin, usually in solitude.
Whosoever is delighted in solitude is either a wild beast or a god.
The worst solitude is to have no real friendships.
Solitude is pleasant. Loneliness is not.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
