Imagine being unable to escape as the bully relentlessly pursues them online in a form accessible 24/7. Imagine how bleak that must be; imagine how lonely it must be.
At a time when it's possible for thirty people to stand on the top of Everest in one day, Antarctica still remains a remote, lonely and desolate continent. A place where it's possible to see the splendours and immensities of the natural world at its most dramatic and, what's more, witness them almost exactly as they were, long, long before human beings ever arrived on the surface of this planet. Long may it remain so.david attenborough
All the lonely people, where do they all come from?The Beatles
I wandered lonely as a cloud That floats on high o'er vales and hills, When all at once I saw a crowd, A host, of golden daffodils. Beside the lake, beneath the trees, Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.william wordsworth
And the blue gentian flower, that, in the breeze, Nods lonely, of her beauteous race the last.william cullen bryant
On a lonely sword leaned he, Like Arthur on Excalibur In the battle by the sea .
Loneliness and the feeling of being unwanted is the most terrible poverty.Mother Teresa
I sit beside my lonely fireAnd pray for wisdom yet:For calmness to rememberOr courage to forget.charles hamilton aide
Turn, gentle Hermit of the Dale,And guide my lonely wayTo where yon taper cheers the valeWith hospitable ray.Oliver Goldsmith
He suffers from one great literary defect, which is often found in lonely geniuses: he never knows when to stop. lonely people are apt to fall in love with the sound of their own voice, as Narcissus fell in love with his reflection, not out of conceit but out of despair of finding another who will listen and respond.wystan hugh auden
In misery's darkest cavern known, His useful care was ever nigh Where hopeless anguish pour'd his groan, And lonely want retir'd to die.samuel johnson
I had seven faces thought I knew which one to wear But I'm sick of spending these lonely nights training myself not to care the subway, she is a porno and the pavements they are a mess I know you've supported me for a long time somehow I'm not impressed New York Cares (got to be some more change in my life)
My wife, who, poor wretch, is troubled with her lonely life.Samuel Pepys
When yer lonely and you start to hear/The little voices in your head at night/You will only sniff away the tears/So you can dance until the mornings lightAnd in your head, do you feel what your not supposed to feel?You need more time / 'Cos your thoughts and words won't last forevermore"Noel Gallagher
Here in a little lonely roomI am master of earth and sea,And the planets come to me.arthur symons
The best an American can look forward to is the lonely pleasure of one who stands at long last on a chilly and inhospitable mountaintop where few have been before, where few can follow and where few will consent to believe he has been.george f. kennan
He who seeks truth must be content with a lonely, little-trodden path. If he cannot worship her till she has been canonized by the shouts of the multitude, he must take his place with the members of that wretched crowd who shouted for two long hours, "Great is Diana of the Ephesians!" till truth, reason, and calmness were all drowned in noise.frederick william robertson
"It's a little lonely in the desert..." "It is lonely when you're among people, too," said the snake.
There'll be that crowd, that barbarous crowd, through all the centuries, And who can say but some young belle may walk and talk men wild Who is my beauty's equal, though that my heart denies, But not the exact likeness, the simplicity of a child, And that proud look as though she had gazed into the burning sun, And all the shapely body no tittle gone astray. I mourn for that most lonely thing; and yet God 's will be done: I knew a phoenix in my youth, so let them have their day .
Such blessings Nature pours, O'erstock'd mankind enjoy but half her stores. In distant wilds, by human eyes unseen, She rears her flowers, and spreads her velvet green; Pure gurgling rills the lonely desert trace And waste their music on the savage race.Edward Young
lonely people keep up a ceaseless flow of commentary on themselves.mason cooley
