Born To Live Alone Quotes

If you cannot live alone, you were born a slave.
— Fernando Pessoa —

I was, being human, born alone;
I am, being woman, hard beset;
I live by squeezing from a stone
The little nourishment I get.

— Elinor Wylie

Freedom is the possibility of isolation. You are free if you can withdraw from people, not having to seek them out for the sake of money, company, love, glory or curiosity, none of which can thrive in silence and solitude. If you can't live alone, you were born a slave. You may have all the splendours of the mind and the soul, in which case you're a noble slave, or an intelligent servant, but you're not free. And you can't hold this up as your own tragedy, for your birth is a tragedy of Fate alone. Hapless you are, however, if life itself so oppresses you that you're forced to become a slave. Hapless you are if, having been born free, with the capacity to be isolated and self-sufficient, poverty should force you to live with others.

— Fernando Pessoa

Always trust yourself and your own feeling, as opposed to argumentations, discussions, or introductions of that sort; if it turns out that you are wrong, then the natural growth of your inner life will eventually guide you to other insights. Allow your judgments their own silent, undisturbed development, which, like all progress, must come from deep within and cannot be forced or hastened. Everything is gestation and then birthing. To let each impression and each embryo of a feeling come to completion, entirely in itself, in the dark, in the unsayable, the unconscious, beyond the reach of one's own understanding, and with deep humility and patience to wait for the hour when a new clarity is born: this alone is what it means to live as an artist: in understanding as in creating.

— Rainer Maria Rilke

If you cannot live alone, you were born a slave.

— Fernando Pessoa

We are born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Everything in-between is a gift.

— Yul Brynner

I was born alone and I will die alone. I've got to do what's right for me and not live my life the way anybody else wants it.

— Curtis Jackson

We are not born, we do not live for ourselves alone; our country, our friends, have a share in us.

— Marcus Tullius Cicero
