Lonely is a state of mind (the idea of needing some company) Solitude is a state of being ( finding some company in yourself)
It’s better to be alone, than to have a bad companion.
Surround yourself with great people and you will never be lonely.
Some solitude is healthy, it teaches you to know yourself. You have to be able to enjoy your own company before you can truly enjoy anyone else’s, otherwise you’re just trying to fill a void by being around others. ~ Deanna Painter
People thinks that all friends are friends. But, in fact those friends surround you now is just your temporary friend especially they get something from you. But you can really know who your real friends in time of troubles and sorrows. You can even count in your right hand fingers only.
I have always said, ” I would rather be lonely alone than lonely in a crowd”. I actually find solitude quite comforting. (Best way to get to know yourself and communicate with God) (And listen to God) ~ Beverly Nichols
I’m always happy in my aloneness but never in my loneliness.
It is good to be alone to have peace not to the extent of isolating yourself to the rest of world. No man is an island. Well meaning friends and relatives are around to fill the gap once in a while. ~ Norma Powell
