Being Alone

What image does the phrase "being alone" bring up for you? Being lonely? Being unmarried? Quietly and happily reading a good book with no one around to annoy you? Hiking by yourself in a quiet forest? Especially if the phrase "being alone" feels like a negative thought to you, see if the quotes in this message, and on my pages of Quotes about Being Alone and Quotes about Being Single, don't help you to better appreciate the positive aspects of spending time 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

Love does not claim possession,
but gives freedom.
- Rabindranath Tagore

If you are single, eliminate the thought that something is lacking,
and just live each day joyfully.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

When you are lonely you are thinking of the other,
you are missing the other.
Loneliness is a negative state.
Aloneness is the presence of oneself.
Aloneness is very positive.
- Osho
