B. R. Ambedkar

To dare to live alone is the rarest courage; since there are many who had rather meet their bitterest enemy in the field, than their own hearts in their closet.
Charles Caleb Colton

Only the lonely know the way I feel tonight.
Roy Orbison

Remember we're all in this alone.
Lily Tomlin

Being also somewhat of a loner, but never lonely, I liked today's quotes very much. I love George Carlin.

Excellent quotes, Don.
As others have said, I enjoy my alone time, and I don't feel lonely.
I find Albert Einstein's quote interesting and I wonder why some people feel lonely and others do not.
