Emptiness Quotes

Emptiness is a mode of perception and is commonly seen in many people, especially among singles or people who stay aloof. Emptiness is a feeling that makes a person lonely and drives one away from life. Although feelings of emptiness are the status quo among human beings, it is not normal to have such feeling. The root causes of emptiness are frustration, hopelessness, disturbance, dissatisfaction, and depression. A sense of void may also come to one’s mind after the death of a loved one. This sometimes affects the young as their consciousness is affected by traumatic experiences in life. This can lead to traits of suppression, denial and disownment from their personality to be accepted and survive within the social group they are born into.

It is easy to say that we don’t want to feel empty as it is more painful than the dictionary could ever define it. However, most people across the world don’t have any clue as to how to deal with the problem. The best advisable solution could be finding the reason behind the void and taking charge over it. If you too are feeling empty, here are some motivation quotes on emptiness to boost you up.

Omar Khayyam

Drunkards are doomed to hell, so men declare, Believe it not, 'tis but a foolish scare; Heaven will be empty as this hand of mine, If none who love good drink find entrance there.

Virginia Woolf

Once conform, once do what other people do because they do it, and a lethargy steals over all the finer nerves and faculties of the soul. She becomes all outer show and inward emptiness; dull, callous, and indifferent.

T. S. Eliot

And they write innumerable books; being too vain and distracted for silence: seeking every one after his own elevation, and dodging his emptiness.

Saint Augustine

The honors of this world, what are they but puff, and emptiness, and peril of falling?
