Being alone, being lonely and being in solitude might seem like three phrases having identical meanings, but in reality, their meanings are poles apart. Being alone means not being surrounded by anyone, being lonely means feeling emptiness in not being surrounded by anyone and being in solitude means feeling complete and peaceful in the emptiness. So here are some Solitude Quotes and Sayings that will make you fall in love with your own company.

Humans are social animals. And many of us are such social butterflies that we need a party around us every single moment of life, and the moment the party dies, our soul dies too. To some extent, it is important and fulfilling that we keep in contact with our people. But the other important aspect is that we must learn to blossom in solitude too.

When someone says that we should not depend on others for our happiness and that we should be our own friend, this is the first step towards solitude. The day you will be able to spend the whole weekend in your apartment with no one else, all by yourself, while being cheerful, productive and happy will be the day that will mark the start of your unhampered growth in life.
