Life could be wonderful if people would leave you alone.
It's an interesting combination: Having a great fear of being alone, and having a desperate need for solitude and the solitary experience. That's always been a tug of war for me.
I don't want to be alone, I want to be left alone.
I've also seen that great men are often lonely. This is understandable, because they have built such high standards for themselves that they often feel alone. But that same loneliness is part of their ability to create.
In solitude the mind gains strength and learns to lean upon itself.

Your actions, and your action alone, determines your worth.
I'm single, footloose and fancy free, I have no responsibilities, no anchors. Work, friendship and self-improvement, that's me.

I never said, 'I want to be alone.' I only said, 'I want to be left alone.' There is all the difference.
When so many are lonely as seem to be lonely, it would be inexcusably selfish to be lonely alone.
I want to be alone.
I would be married, but I'd have no wife, I would be married to a single life.
You're only lonely if you're not there for you.
If it's true that our species is alone in the universe, then I'd have to say the universe aimed rather low and settled for very little.
I want to be with those who know secret things or else alone.
Rainer Maria Rilke
It's often just enough to be with someone. I don't need to touch them. Not even talk. A feeling passes between you both. You're not alone.
Living alone makes it harder to find someone to blame.
I love to be alone. I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude.
Henry David Thoreau
