“We do not place especial value on the possession of a virtue until we notice its total absence in our opponent.”
“Days of absence, sad and dreary, Clothed in sorrow's dark array, Days of absence, I am weary; She I love is far away.”
“Absence and death are the same - only that in death there is no suffering.”
“Virtue is not the absence of vices or the avoidance of moral dangers; virtue is a vivid and separate ting, like pain or a particular smell.”
G. K. Chesterton
“Peace is not the absence of war, but a virtue based on strength of character.”
“Peace is not an absence of war, it is a virtue, a state of mind, a disposition for benevolence, confidence, justice.”
“For peace is not mere absence of war, but is a virtue that springs from, a state of mind, a disposition for benevolence, confidence, justice”
