Loneliness Quotes


Nobody has the market cornered on loneliness. From the richest financier to the poorest street person, we all feel this emotion at one time or another. Even Jesus felt lonely, and he was rarely without a crowd following behind. Loneliness quotes can be comforting when getting through the lonely times. The famous theologian Paul Tillich observed, “Language has created the word loneliness to express the pain of being alone, and the word solitude to express the glory of being alone.” This comment explains how loneliness quotes open the possibility that we control our own perspective on being alone and how we choose to react to it.

Loneliness   

Mother Teresa

"When Christ said: ''I was hungry and you fed me,'' he didn't mean only the hunger for bread and for food; he also meant the hunger to be loved. Jesus himself experienced this loneliness. He came amongst his own and his own received him not, and it hurt him then and it has kept on hurting him. The same hunger, the same loneliness, the same having no one to be accepted by and to be loved and wanted by. Every human being in that case resembles Christ in his loneliness; and that is the hardest part, that's real hunger." Mother Teresa

And you are but a thought --a vagrant thought, a useless thought, a homeless thought, wandering forlorn among the empty eternities!" Mark Twain
