Lone Wolf Quotes

The lone wolf is typically associated with grief and isolation. It also reflects a romantic notion of independence and self-reliance for some. When applied to wolves’ genuine character, we observe that they are far less lonely than we commonly imagine. Wolves travel in packs and always travel in groups. When a wolf breaks away from its pack, it is not for the sake of isolation. Instead, they’re looking for a mate to start their own wolfpack.

As evidenced by the following quotes, knowledge of a wolf’s true nature has done little to dispel the lone wolf ideal:
