The time you feel lonely is the time you most need to be by yourself. -Douglas Coupland
Loneliness expresses the pain of being alone and solitude expresses the glory of being alone. -Paul Tillich
Let me tell you this: if you meet a loner, no matter what they tell you, it’s not because they enjoy solitude. It’s because they have tried to blend into the world before, and people continue to disappoint them.-Jodi Picoult, My Sister’s Keeper.
I was quiet, a loner. I was one of those children where, if you put me in a room and gave me some crayons and a pencils, you wouldn't hear from me for nine straight hours. And I was always drawing racing cars and rockets and spaceships and planes, things that were very fast that would take me away. -Gary Oldman
“I am completely a loner. In my head I want to feel I can be anywhere. There is a sort of recklessness that being a loner allows me.” - Arundhati Roy
