Quotes of Wisdom: Osho & Friedrich Nietzsche on the Wisdom of Being Alone

“…a “sannyasin”…a solitary being, a wanderer, absolutely happy in his aloneness. If somebody walks by his side it is okay, it is good. If somebody leaves it is also okay, it is good. He never waits for anybody, and he never looks back. Alone, he is whole”

~ Osho (Love, Freedom and Aloneness)


“Alas, I can see that you do not know what it means to be alone. Wherever there have been powerful societies, governments, religions, or public opinions – in short, wherever there was any kind of tyranny, it has hated the lonely philosopher; for philosophy opens up a refuge for man where no tyranny can reach: the cave of inwardness, the labyrinth of the breast; and that annoys all tyrants”

~ Friedrich Nietzsche
