Famous quotes containing the word lonely:

    When long ago I saw her ride
    Under Ben Bulben to the meet,
    The beauty of her country-side
    With all youth’s lonely wildness stirred,
    She seemed to have grown clean and sweet
    Like any rock-bred, sea-borne bird....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Taking men into the union is just the kindergarten of their education and every force is against their further education. Men who live up those lonely creeks have only the mine owners’ Y.M.C.As, the mine owners’ preachers and teachers, the mine owners’ doctors and newspapers to look to for their ideas. So they don’t get many.
    Mother Jones (1830–1930)

    In his lonely solitude, the solitary man feeds upon himself; in the thronging multitude, the many feed upon him. Now choose.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
