See Sole, a.] 1. state of being alone, or withdrawn from society; a lonely life; loneliness. [1913 Webster] Whosoever is delighted with solitude is either a wild beast or a god. --Bacon.

Loneliness; soitariness; loneness; retiredness; recluseness. -- Solitude, Retirement, Seclusion, Loneliness. Usage: Retirement is a withdrawal from general society, implying that a person has been engaged in its scenes. Solitude describes the fact that a person is alone; seclusion, that he is shut out from others, usually by his own choice; loneliness, that he feels the pain and oppression of being alone. Hence, retirement is opposed to a gay, active, or public life; solitude, to society; seclusion, to freedom of access on the part of others; and loneliness, enjoyment of that society which the heart demands. [1913 Webster] O blest retirement, friend to life's decline. --Goldsmith. [1913 Webster] Such only can enjoy the country who are capable of thinking when they are there; then they are prepared for solitude; and in that [the country] solitude is prepared for them. --Dryden.

[1913 Webster] These evils . . . seem likely to reduce it [a city] ere long to the loneliness and the insignificance of a village. --Eustace. [1913 Webster]
