Word of the Day: No. 10

Solitude. 1: the quality or state of being alone or remote from society : seclusion~Merriam Webster

A distinction has been made between solitude and loneliness. In this sense, these two words refer, respectively, to the joy and the pain of being alone.~Wikipedia

“Our language has wisely sensed the two sides of being alone. It has created the word loneliness to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word solitude to express the glory of being alone.” Paul Tillich
