alone



Language... has created the word "loneliness" to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word "solitude" to express the glory of being alone.  -Paul Tillich 

We live in a very tense society.  We are pulled apart... and we all need to learn how to pull ourselves together.... I think that at least part of the answer lies in solitude.  -Helen Hayes

If you notice animals, they all spend time alone. Similarly, man too needs to be alone, even those married.

I believe people are sometimes frightened to be alone and that being among others validates their existence. To understand your being all on your own connects you to your internal essence and power.
It takes courage I think
