Misery Loves Company Origin:

The term misery loves company is often ascribed to John Ray, an English naturalist who was active in the middle to late seventeenth century.

However, the proverb appears in the play Doctor Faustus by Christoper Marlowe: Solamen miseris socios habuisse doloris. This Latin phrase literally translates as “To the unhappy it is a comfort to have had company in misery.”

However, Marlowe is not the originator of this Latin phrase, Dominick de Gravina, a 14th-century Italian historian wrote this Latin phrase in his work, Chronicon de rebus in Apulia gestis. It is reasonable to assume that the sentiment of this proverb is even older.
