9. "Leaning into the afternoons I cast my sad netstowards your oceanic eyes.There in the highest blaze my solitude lengthens and flames,its arms turning like a drowning man's.I send out red signals across your absent eyesthat smell like the sea or the beach by a lighthouse.You keep only darkness, my distant female,from your regard sometimes the coast of dread emerges.Leaning into the afternoons I fling my sad netsto that sea that is thrashed by your oceanic eyes.The birds of night peck at the first starsthat flash like my soul when I love you.The night gallops on its shadowy mareshedding blue tassels over the land."
Author: Pablo Neruda
10. "For those who are not frightened by the solitude, everything will have a different taste.In solitude, they will discover the love that might otherwise arrive unnoticed. In solitude, they will understand and respect the love that left them.In solitude, they will be able to decide whether it is worth asking that lost love to come back or if they should simply let it go and set off along a new path.In solitude, they will learn that saying ‘No' does not always show a lack of generosity and that saying ‘Yes' is not always a virtue.And those who are alone at this moment, need never be frightened by the words of the devil: ‘You're wasting your time.'Or by the chief demon's even more potent words: ‘No one cares about you.'The Divine Energy is listening to us when we speak to other people, but also when we are still and silent and able to accept solitude as a blessing.And when we achieve that harmony, we receive more than we asked for."
Author: Paulo Coelho

12. "Before Summer RainSuddenly, from all the green around you,something-you don't know what-has disappeared;you feel it creeping closer to the window,in total silence. From the nearby woodyou hear the urgent whistling of a plover,reminding you of someone's Saint Jerome:so much solitude and passion comefrom that one voice, whose fierce request the downpourwill grant. The walls, with their ancient portraits, glideaway from us, cautiously, as thoughthey weren't supposed to hear what we are saying.And reflected on the faded tapestries now;the chill, uncertain sunlight of those longchildhood hours when you were so afraid"
Author: Rainer Maria Rilke
13. "We dress our garden, eat our dinners, discuss the household with our wives, and these things make no impression, are forgotten next week; but in the solitude to which every man is always returning, he has a sanity and revelations, which in his passage into new worlds he will carry with him. Never mind the ridicule, never mind the defeat: up again, old heart! — it seems to say, — there is victory yet for all justice; and the true romance which the world exists to realize, will be the transformation of genius into practical power."
Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson

Le pays me saute au visage. c'est fou ce que l'homme accapare l'attention de l'homme. La présence des autres affadit le monde. La solitude est cette conquête qui rend jouissance des choses.Il fait -33°. Le camion s'est fondu à la brume. Le silence descend du ciel sous la forme de petits copeaux blancs. Être seul, c'est entendre le silence. Une rafale. Le grésil brouille la vue. Je pousse un hurlement. J'écarte les bras, tends mon visage au vide glacé et rentre au chaud.J'ai atteint le débarcadère de ma vie.Je vais enfin savoir si j'ai une vie intérieure."
Author: Sylvain Tesson
