Monotony Quotations

It is cruel, you know, that music should be so beautiful. It has the beauty of loneliness of pain: of strength and freedom. The beauty of disappointment and never-satisfied love. The cruel beauty of nature and everlasting beauty of monotony.
Benjamin Britten

The monotony and solitude of a quiet life stimulates the creative mind.
Albert Einstein

Monotony collapses time; novelty unfolds it. You can exercise daily and eat healthily and live a long life, while experiencing a short one. If you spend your life sitting in a cubicle and passing papers, one day is bound to blend unmemorably into the next - and disappear.
Joshua Foer

Beware of monotony; it's the mother of all the deadly sins.
Edith Wharton

I feel monotony and death to be almost the same.
Charlotte Bronte
