“No matter how many relationships we seem to have, we’re all alone.” – Mei Misaki
Loneliness is something we’re all bound to face once in a lifetime. And the irony is: sometimes the closer you get to someone, the lonelier you feel if they can’t relate to you in the ways you’d like.
If you’ve dealt with or are dealing with these feelings, here are some of the best quotes to help you relate and ponder about what it means.
As well as how you can look at it and how to deal with it.
Anime Quotes About Loneliness:
“Loneliness” is no longer part of my vocabulary.” – Brook
“People cannot win against their loneliness.” – Gaara
“Just because someone is important to you, it doesn’t necessarily mean that, that person is good. Even if you knew that person was evil… People cannot win against their loneliness.” – Gaara
“Perhaps the companionship of an evil person is preferable to loneliness.” – Gaara
“You have the same eyes as I do…the eyes, filled with hatred and death, that long for strength… Just like mine. Your eyes tell me how badly you wish to kill the one who put you through the hell called loneliness.” – Gaara
Hachiman Hikigaya Quotes
“One ought to experience loneliness at least once or twice in life. No, you have to experience it. The idea of being chained to another person without reprieve is far more abnormal and disquieting. One has no choice but to learn about loneliness. I’m sure some things can’t be experienced without it.” – Hachiman Hikigaya
Hiroko Seto Quotes
“It’s not just allies who support each other. From your enemies, you learn so much and gain so much. Until the day you meet again… Just knowing they exist helps you to withstand the loneliness. Those who compete, even if they’re enemies, help each other out.” – Hiroko Seto
Rukia Kuchiki Quotes
“I know the loneliness of being a prisoner. I know the joy you feel when your friends come to rescue you and the fear of them being injured and defeated.” – Rukia Kuchiki
Yuu Tobita Quotes
“There will be some who give up because they are dissatisfied… But some feel unsettled and are lonely. So if… one day we could all laugh freely together… We, who are all in the same circumstances, can help each other… I think that will be more comforting than anything else and will also chase away loneliness.” – Yuu Tobita
Rokka Shimao Quotes
“The warmth of another person’s flesh is scary. It thaws out the loneliness that you had forgotten about so easily.” – Rokka Shimao
Kaworu Nagisa Quotes
“Are you afraid of other people? I know that by keeping others at a distance you avoid a betrayal of your trust, but you must endure the loneliness. Man can never completely erase this sadness, because all men are fundamentally alone. Pain is something man must carry in his heart, and since the heart feels pain so easily, some believe that life is pain.” – Kaworu Nagisa

Holo The Wise Wolf Quotes
“Loneliness is a sickness that leads to death.” – Holo The Wise Wolf
Fujou Kirie Quotes
“It wasn’t the pain that hurt me. Rather, it was the feeling of me being ripped apart, and the sound of the knife plunging deep, deep into my heart. That incomparably bittersweet fear. My body shook and trembled at the thought of it. My silent weeping contained my uneasiness, my loneliness, my will to live. My tears aren’t from the pain either, or from the fear of the encounter. It was for the brush of death that I had never before experienced, but had now fallen in love with, even though I pray every night for the strength to live.” – Fujou Kirie
Sakae Jinnouchi Quotes
“There’s no lack of painful things in this world, but hunger and loneliness must surely be two of the worst. Thanks to you, I didn’t know a moment of either of them.” – Sakae Jinnouchi

Lelouch Vi Britannia Quotes
“I am Lelouch Vi Britannia, son of the late Empress Marianne. The prince abandoned by his empire. If there are any that think they can go beyond my despair, then let them try.” – Lelouch Vi Britannia
Makarov Dreyar Quotes
“There are people in this world who prefer solitude. But there is no one who can withstand it.” – Makarov Dreyar
Shogo Makishima Quotes
“You sure say some funny things. Solitude? Does that only apply to me? Who isn’t alone in this society? The time when our connection to others was the basis of our selves is long gone. In this world where everyone is watched over by the system and live within the system’s standards, a community isn’t necessary. Everyone just lives in their own cell, and the system tames them by giving them each their own personal serenity.” – Shogo Makishima
