Famous quotes containing the word lonesome:

    They will visit you at your convenience, whether you are lonesome or not, on rainy days or fair. They propose themselves as either transient acquaintances or permanent friends. They will stay as long as you like, departing or returning as you wish. Their friendship entails no obligation. Best of all, and not always true of our merely human friends, they have Cleopatra’s infinite variety.
    Clifton Fadiman (b. 1904)

    We are lonesome animals. We spend all our life trying to be less lonesome. One of our ancient methods is to tell a story begging the listener to say—and to feel—”Yes, that’s the way it is, or at least that’s the way I feel it. You’re not as alone as you thought.”
    John Steinbeck (1902–1968)

    ... as lonesome as a kitten in a wash-house copper with the lid on.
    Charles Dickens (1812–1870)
