Being Alone vs Being Lonely

Since we often have conversation threads here about men afraid to live alone, women afraid to live alone, and people who have learned to enjoy being alone, seemed very much on topic to me.

Lift quote:

>‘It is better to suffer wrong than to do wrong,’ Arendt wrote, ‘because you can remain the friend of the sufferer; who would want to be the friend of and have to live together with a murderer? Not even another murderer.’ It is not that unthinking men are monsters, that the sad sleepwalkers of the world would sooner commit murder than face themselves in solitude.
